Friday the 20th of May is World Bee Day. This day has been designated by the United Nations as a day when we remind everyone about the roles that bees play in our ecosystem.
But a lot of people are afraid of bees. And it turns out that this fear is exactly what can kill us. On the one hand, fear can agitate the bees and cause them to attack us. And on the other hand, if we attack the bees and their environment, we will cause our own death. In this episode we ask the questions - should we be afraid of bees? And why do we even have bees in the first place? What are bees good for?
This episode was produced by Rahmat Muhammad, Mariam Mohammed, Lucky Usamah, Alexandra Gekpe, Uche Mbah, Dominic Tabakaji and Sam Tabakaji.
Executive producer Rahmat Muhammad.
