Ep40: Assaults on Healthcare Workers: A Shocking Realization

O. M. G. Not only does this describe our wine pairing for this episode, but it also sums up our feelings about recent news! The media has highlighted some recent attacks on healthcare workers – as it should – and we’re shocked by some of the motives behind these attacks and the outcomes! Although healthcare workers are supposed to keep patients safe…who’s keeping them safe? How can they be expected to do their jobs without proper safety and security precautions on work premises? In this episode, we mention a few closer-to-home events that have played out like Grey’s Anatomy episodes, and talk about what more can and should be done to prevent more events like these. Make sure you’ve got a glass of wine in hand when you listen to this one!

Ep30: The Hunter & The Stag

‘Tis the season for bolder red wines and deer hunting! In this episode we’re joined by avid huntsman, Adam, as we explore the ethos of the modern, ethical hunter. Delving into the drive behind the hunt, we discuss the hunter’s responsiblity to the environment, the animal, and the earth, and how the stigma associated with the sport is not reflective of a true huntsman. This isn’t some float off into the woods and have a bonfire type of deal; it requires skill and a specific mindset. Fittingly paired with St. Hubert’s “The Stag” Cabernet Sauvignon, this episode is one that’ll prove insightful for those unfamiliar with the hunting world.

With a delicious wine and a remarkable history – Serge and his legacy leave us awe-struck!

Ep4: Intrinsic Motivation

What motivates you through life and why do we do the things we do? Do you only do things for the rewards (or to avoid negative consequences)? Is there anything you do just for the fun of it anymore? In this episode, we talk about the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and what role each plays in our lives – from childhood to adulthood. Touching on some of our earlier motivations – playing piano, dusting stairs, and working at a job that wasn’t entirely rewarding, we dive into this topic with the 2016 INTRINSIC Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington.
