Melittology with Amanda Shaw

FullSizeRender-1.jpg

BEES! Hives, honey, and how to keep them as outdoor pets. Meet melittologist and President of the Urban Beekeepers Association, Amanda Shaw. She and Alie cozy up in a weird hotel in Portland to chat about honeybees vs. native ones, how to become a beekeeper, social savagery that rivals Game of Thrones, if you should eat honey to deal with seasonal allergies, what happens in the drone zone (hint: boning) and how we can SAVE THESE FRIGGIN BEES. Also: what happens when 15,000 bees go through a carwash.

Ps: I meant to post this last night when the episode went up but I got in late from the airport and somehow fell asleep in the middle of eating hummus. I don't understand how it happened. Anyway!
