Podcasts are a great way to pass the time when you exercising or building frames. Check them out, I listen to podcast on my way to work. Nothing like learning while stuck in the Auckland Traffic. Didn't Zig Zilgar call that “Automobile University”?

The Barefoot Beekeeper
Phil Chandler's podcasts are on many topics, but usually revolve about keeping bees in the most natural way possible. Phil advocates Top Bar Hives, but many of his techniques and practices could be adapted for other types of hives. Phil lives in the Cornwall region of England.
He is passionate about the bees and the environment, all his shows include some great topics and things to ponder.
Listen to our interview with Phil HERE.
The Beehive Jive
This is a brand new podcast from South London, Beekeeping friends Tracey and Paul chat about bees and their beekeeping experiences. The first episode was very positive, I',m looking forward to hearing the next episodes as Summer and the Beekeeping season starts again.
The Beekeepers Corner
A great podcast from Kevin Inglin who lives in New Jersey, USA. Kevin does a lot research for his shows. So you will learn lots of great information about recent conferences and released studies.
Highly recommend you subscribe to the BK Corner podcast and start enjoying the “Kevin Moments” :).

These shows are not very regular but still have some fantastic past shows, it's well worth checking out their back catalog of shows.
Thinking Bee Podcast
This podcast is run by Stuart Ratcliff; sadly he hasn't released a new show in the last Eleven months.
Stuart’s podcast is a beekeeping and agricultural centered podcast, where he talks with other beekeepers and people involved in other areas of agriculture.
Honey Bee Man
This is a great series that Mark the Honey Bee Man recorded back in 2007, he goes through ten lessons in getting started with beekeeping. It may be old, but hey we are all using 200 year old beehives. I recommend the series for anyone starting out with beekeeping.
Gone, but not forgotten
Organically Managed Beekeeping
Last podcast was released in 2013.
Craig's podcast was fantastic, he interviews some great guests from the treatment free world. He also discusses his bees and issues he is having with them. The sound quality is great and he finds some great guests.
