Ang Roell of They Keep Bees guests on Pixel Therapy this week to talk about the fascinating lives of bees and what they have to teach us about communication and embracing change!
Sup y’all! August already?! Spencer kicks things off this week by hurling baseless accusations at Jamie for not vocally praising Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart enough (which has dimensionated itself right into Spencer’s heart and the top of their totally unofficial Games of the Year list), while Jamie shares a peek into Death’s Door and the life and times of a soul-reaping crow.
Then we continue the totally unintentional animal friend theme, as apiarist aka BEEKEEPER and co-founder of They Keep Bees, Ang Roell (they/them) joins us in the studio to talk bees, queens, community, and embracing change. Also, someone definitely needs to make a video game about beekeeping – if that someone is you, let’s talk!
“The SUSU commUNITY Farm is a Afro-Indigenous stewarded farm and land-based healing center in Southern Vermont that elevates Vermont’s land and foodways. We do this by co-creating a life-affirming and culturally relevant platform for Black, Indigenous, People of color, youth, under-resourced folx, and allies to thrive and experience safety and connection while beginning to develop the tools and agency to heal from the trauma of colonization.”
