E80: The Pleasures and Perils of Beekeeping

Episode Summary

Host: Carol McAllister Guest: Kristin Holloway Description: Kristin Holloway shares with host Carol MacAllister how her initial curiosity about beekeeping evolved into a fascination with these complex and master communal-living engineers. Honey bees live entirely for the community's welfare, which enables their critical role as pollinators of the foods humans and animals need to exist. Keeping her four hives healthy and happy is one way Kristin contributes to combating the decline of our pollinators due to Global Warming.
