Hey everyone, it’s Ron.

I have a long drive into work every day. To make the time go by
quicker, I listen to a lot of podcasts.

One of my favorites story tellers is a man named Robert Krulwich.
He’s the NPR science reporter and co-host of a science show called
Radio Lab.

And he also does really interesting stories about bees.

Here’s a link to a story he did about the police in the UK using honey
bees to see if people are genetically modifying plants illegally.

This is a fascinating story on how bees use group think to find a new
home after a swarm.

And another story of people who are now chasing swarms….

Finally, if bees were cars, what would their MPG be?

I hope you enjoy Robert’s reporting as much as I do, and learn
something along the way.

Thanks,

Ron
