What happened to The Hive?

As a lover of podcast, I wanted to produce one myself for a long time. And as announced, I actually produced three episodes of my podcast called The Hive. I am glad I did it and it was a great experience but I didn’t publish them.

I wasn’t happy with the result and the overall presentation. I have years of acting experience but hosting a talk show is still another thing. I am probably too introverted to feel comfortable in this kind of format, i guess. I still love the idea and The Hive is still something I want to try again when I am ready for this step.

I consider this a strategic retreat to reassess the whole concept. Now I can better evaluate the applicability of certain ideas. Things that didn’t work out this time will work out next time. I am privileged to have friends who supported me in every step in the making of The Hive, from concept to editing, and with their hands-on experience and feedback, I can’t wait to sit down and create the next Hive.

Awesome bee tribe database

Planning my upcoming podcast I was searching on the internet to see if the term “bee tribe” exists. As you might know, English is not my first language, so I had to look up if the term is appropriate.

Long story short, the answer is yes. But along the way I found this awesome website published by York University: A database showing close up pictures of specimen of different bee tribes all over the world. It has close to nothing to do with anthropology, but you might find it interesting.
