The hive mind is a type of collective intelligence.
Honeybees are fascinating creatures, and my love of beekeeping really comes out in this episode.
I’ll share the story of how I got started with beekeeping plus its challenges and marvels…
…and we’ll use the super-organism status of honeybees to gain some insight into our collective behavior as humans.
In today’s modern world, are we functioning from a standpoint of altruism, community, and shared common good?
Or have we taken the pursuit of individualism too far?
And what lessons can we learn from the bees?
In this episode of Harder to Kill Radio, my cohost / husband Craig Zielinski and I explore the answers to these important questions and more.
And if you’ve ever been curious about beekeeping or how you can support your local pollinators, this show has some great insight. I’ve also listed out some of my favorite resources in the links section below.Listen to this new episode of Harder to Kill Radio: Hive Mind. Click To Tweet
