Can't get enough bees? Check out this week's bee-themed episode of SciShow Tangents, the SciShow spin-off podcast:
https://www.wnycstudios.org/story/scishow-tangents-bees

There are more than 20,000 species of bees, all of which buzz when they fly, and many of which also do it to communicate. But some bees buzz for a completely different reason that has nothing to do with communication or flight!
