Excellent podcast for beginner or seasoned expert!

This was the first podcast I ever listened to and I feel fortunate to have found it! It starts out with a beginner beekeeper paired up with a master bee keeper. I love the good ole boy back and forth and how each show mutual respect for the others strengths and failures.
Ken is a lot like me! If I do something I go at it full blast or not at all! Listening to him talk about swarm traps and how much effort he was putting into it made me belly laugh because I’d just finished doing the same thing he did...I went full blast at a project that I really didn’t have any idea what I was doing, lol! I have already caught 4 wild swarms this spring using there info! They are the first swarms I have ever caught. Thanks for the great info guys and keep up the good work!
