My favorite

This is my favorite Bee Keeping podcast. Informative. Straightforward. Short. I like the back and forth between the two gentlemen that host it. It’s like evesdropping on two older men at the bee club having a conversation and then it’s over. I like short podcast but I wish this one was longer.
Keep it up

Informative and fun

The discussions are light and conversational. I find that I’m picking up lots of proven techniques that I’ll be able to apply to my own hives. Thanks, gentlemen, for sharing your time and knowledge with us.
