Who would have thought the wing of a tiny honeybee drives a trillion dollar economy, global food security, and economic resilience for women. Host Audrey Choi explores the impact of these essential workers on our global food supply, and why protecting them is so essential to our own survival.

In this episode, we meet John Miller, a beekeeper who each year sends millions of bees on a road trip to California where they participate in the biggest pollination event on earth. Then we meet Dawn Musil of Bee Bank and Brokerage who's helping small scale beekeepers tap into the billion dollar pollination industry. George Clouston of Bee Hero shares how high-tech tools are helping monitor and protect bees globally. Sabiha Rumani Malik of the World Bee Project explains how these tiny creatures are creating livelihoods and economic independence for women in the Middle East.
