Israel Bravo: Innovation In Bee Colony Storage

In this segment, I speak with Israel Bravo, innovator in the world of beekeeping and bee colony storage. Israel examines and provides solutions to a common problem many beekeepers experience through out the year: beekeepers lose significant portions of their bee colony populations over the winter months (in many cases, up to 40% of the bee colony populations).

Max Dashu: Women, Shamanism, & The Transition To Modernity

Max Dashu and I discuss what has been lost in the transition to modernity.
