Welcome to Would You Rather, a podcast where Cosmos science journalists debate a topic and only one comes out the victor.
In this episode, Jacinta Bowler and Imma Perfetto laugh their way through the unlikely question: would you rather be a bee or an ant?
How does the high flying life of a honeybee, who can waggle dance around to communicate, sound? Or maybe being a part of something bigger, in a super-colony of billions of ant allies, is more your style?
