On the Podcast: Andrew Coté, Jennifer Ackerman, and Maria Konnikova

In this episode, meet Andrew Coté, author of Honey & Venom, Jennifer Ackerman, author of The Bird Way, and Maria Konnikova, author of The Biggest Bluff. It’s remarkable what we can learn when we take the time to observe behavior, without obscuring it with what we think we know. Each of these authors writes about what can be learned when we truly open our eyes: to bees, to birds, and yes, to bluffs. Now, go behind the mic to hear them talk about recording their audiobooks.

Author: Andrew Coté
Read By: Andrew Coté

Written with Coté’s trademark humor, acumen, and a healthy dose of charm, Honey and Venom illuminates the obscure culture of New York City “beeks” and the biology of the bees themselves. For Coté, a fourth-generation beekeeper, this is a family tradition, and this personal significance pervades his celebration of the romance and mystery of bees, their honey, and the beekeepers whose lives revolve around these most magical creatures.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Genius of Birds, a radical investigation into the bird way of being, and the recent scientific research that is dramatically shifting our understanding of birds—how they live and how they think.

Listen to this riveting audiobook about a New York Times bestselling author and New Yorker contributor who parlayed a strong grasp of the science of human decision-making (and a woeful ignorance of cards) into a life-changing run as a professional poker player, under the wing of a legend of the game.
