In a world of noise and chaos, most of us are constantly searching for just a few moments of peace and quiet, and as the pandemonium around us gets louder, it becomes harder and harder to find that inner silence. Well, we may have found the perfect solution to get away from it all – float therapy! And we aren’t talking the root beer kind! This episode we interview Andy, the owner and founder of Float Milwaukee, a local float spa. Floating is a relaxation therapy in which one floats in a pod full of salt water, eliminating external stimuli and giving the body a reset. And there are several health benefits far more than just noise relief! Listen in and find out from Andy how floating may just be your newest way to unwind, rest, and rejuvenate! A glass of relaxing red pairs excellently with this episode!
Criminal offenses in the name of wine?! It’s true, they do exist and there are quite a few. This episode we explore the lawless delinquents that have tarnished the world of wine – from silly offenses like a highway heist of wine (wait….what??!) to more negligent crimes that have caused serious and irreparable damage to winemakers and drinkers alike. You’ll need to have a drink with us as we review the baddest behaviors in the wine industry.
Somewhere in the midst of our wine debauchery, we had the pleasure of stumbling upon Birk O’Halloran, founder and winemaker of Iconic Wines. This episode, Birk joined us for a drink and an inside look on the story behind Iconic Wines. From their no “dogma-free” winemaking approach to the quintessential comic book heroes on every label, we not only learned a ton from Birk, but had a blast doing so! Anything delicious will pair well with this treat of an episode!
Itching for adventure but maybe getting on a plane is not feeling like the right move these days?

This episode, we explore the different ways you can camp out – or even glamp out – and get ideas for our next outdoor expedition. ‘Tis the season for tents, s’mores, and being one with nature – just don’t forget to add wine!
