Bee-pocalypse podcast


#1

Hi all, my family has been listening to this science podcast for a few months, and I was chuffed to see one on bee issues! Thought I’d share - a bit long but some good info in it.

The Bee-pocalypse

What is killing the bees? And will we have enough food to eat if the bee-pocalypse becomes worse? We speak to Dave Goulson, Professor of Biology and Bumblebee ecologist at the University of Sussex, Judy Wu-Smart, Research Entomologist at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Steve Ellis, a beekeeper in Barrett, Minnesota.
