“It was with supreme joy that I completed my first big interview as owner and operator of Bees,” said Cath Shaw Truelove, owner and founder of Bees on a Bicycle. “I've given hundreds of speeches and must say that the hosts of this podcast did a tremendous job of pulling out good stories, and one very dear announcement from me. I'm so proud of the result.”
