Episode notes

Bez from the Happy Mondays: dancer, rockstar and...beekeeper?!

Bez, who has kept bees for more than seven years, shares some hilarious anecdotes about his beekeeping journey, and the lessons he's learnt along the way.

Jimmy also speaks with chair of the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA), Anne Rowberry, about the importance of the UK bee population. It's estimated it would cost farmers £1.8 billion a year to pollinate our crops without them, and around 90% of wild plants and 75% of leading global crops depend on animal pollination. But Anne also shares how bees are a lot more important to our existence than just their economic value.
