Peter Nelson | Filmmaker & Apiarist | #49 Homeless Romantic Podcast

My friend Peter Nelson stops by to chat about the birds and the bees. Peter is a beekeeper and a documentary filmmaker who also made an award-winning documentary about bees called, THE POLLINATORS. We also discuss his methods of growing delicious edible mushrooms as well how nature is the best medicine for living through strange and insane times.
This is a fun talk with an inspiring and enlightening human being!

Every year billions of honey bees are trucked around the US pollinating critical food crops. “The Pollinators” tells their story through interviews with beekeepers and experts who warn that our very way of sustenance, and life, is in danger. NOW STREAMING EVERYWHERE.

“The Pollinators” is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. We talk to farmers, scientists, chefs and academics along the way to give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve it.

The Homeless Romantic Podcast

Traveling and surviving like barnacles on the hull of society is undoubtedly a hard and depressing journey but adversity always yields the most amazing and hilarious stories.

Activists, Academics, Artists, Hobos, Inventors, Musicians, Crazy People and anyone interesting occasionally stop by and have long form conversations with me. Most telling stories from their adventures and travels but also topics ranging from past to future.

Everyone I know has a story to tell and I am always to excited to talk with someone new. Random stories of debauchery and survival in a society that doesn’t value compassion and creativity. The flowers that grow between the cracks in the street have a story to tell.
