Meet your Host

Mandy Shaw

"I love being a beekeeper.

Working with bees has granted me access

to so much more than fresh from the hive honey.

It has been a passport to connecting with a global community of like minded individuals

who share a similar passion for bees

and environmental issues.

I created this show to highlight the lives and stories of this community in a way that is informative and entertaining.

I hope that you enjoy listening as

much as I enjoy creating it!"

Current Feature

In this episode we catch up with Ang Roell, who joined me from Florida where they’re caring for 200 hives. I first interviewed Ang back in late 2018 and we promised a follow up for when their book Radicalize the Hive would become available for all of us to read! That day has come, and you can now request a free copy of Radicalize the Hive by visiting We also talk about the realities of how the pandemic is affecting our beekeeping operations and seeking out the silver lining.
