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.
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.
There are strange things academics are working on. One relatively recent field of research is the study of martial arts and their relationship to culture and media.
