Show Notes
On Season 2, Episode 4 of Hyperlink Radio, Mindy Holahan Peters is sitting down with James Wolfin, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota Bee Lab to talk about the ongoing struggle to restore a healthy population of bees. But that endeavor isn't just for the bee labs and scientists—James and Mindy discuss what you can do to help encourage the bees in your neighborhood, short of becoming a hobby bee keeper. (And actually, James doesn't necessarily recommend you do that, either.) Did you know that 3/4 of our food products require pollination? Bees are more critically integrated with our existence than many of us realize. Dwindling bee numbers are all of our concern, so this episode is critical listening. Enjoy!
