Hey guys how about doing a show on bananas. How about nasty bees and that all strains can be nasty at times and what might cause nastiness.

Informative and Entertaining

I am not yet a beekeeper but am putting in two hives this spring (2021). I have listened to a few other podcasts about backyard beekeeping and none are nearly as informative as Two Bees in a Podcast. Easy to listen to and I am so glad I discovered this gem. I started listening to a few episodes based on their titles and quickly became hooked. I am now listening from the beginning and have enjoyed and learned something from each episode . The Q and A at the end is one of the best parts. Love the hosts and their humor. Interesting guests and their enthusiasm is infectious. Can’t wait until my nucs arrive!!

wanted to like it

I wanted to like this podcast, I listened to three episodes excited to learn more about bees. I felt like the podcaster leading the conversation was condescending to the guests and to his female counter part. I couldn’t continue listening because I felt uncomfortable :/ I like witty humor and sarcasm, not at the expense of putting others one step below you, and I felt like the host was doing that.
