Do We Need to Eat Honey to Save the Bees? – Episode 97
This week we follow some of Andy’s initial Canadian food adventures, delve into a couple of interesting news topics, and conclude with an in depth discussion on one of veganism’s stickiest topics: honey. We’re all sick of explaining to people why consuming honey isn’t vegan, but what about those who say the best way to support bees is to consume the honey harvested by local beekeepers? Is it possible that the survival of the species depends on humans exploiting the product of their labor? Are the honey bees even under threat at all? Do you like jazz? Paul and Andy attempt to cut through the buzz and find some answers.
