The best beekeeping podcast!

This is the best beekeeping podcast that I have found! It is informative and interesting, with the added bonus of being well-organized and easy to follow along. I especially appreciate that it is very science- and data-based, without being overwhelming or too technical. I listen every week, religiously. I’ve been keeping bees for 3 years and feel that this podcast is one of the most helpful tools for my beekeeping success!
