The Hive Jive - Beekeeping Podcast

What happens when you take a professional Fishing Guide, pair him with a Master Beekeeper, and throw in some Texas Red Headed Mutt Honeybees? Well, we are about to find out!

Ken Milam, host of The Great Outdoors & Sunday Sportsman radio shows, and professional fishing guide, has decided that he thinks he’d like to start keeping bees. Problem is, he has absolutely no idea where to start. Enter John Swan, owner of Wicked Bee, and a Texas Master Beekeeper. Together they are going to embark on a beekeeping journey as Ken learns all there is to know about honeybees and the art of beekeeping.

Tune in to the podcast and join them on their journey, and see what all trouble they manage to get themselves into along the way. New episodes are released every Monday!
