You may have noticed your favorite French wine has recently disappeared from the shelves, or perhaps that Spanish Garnacha you love is a few dollars more. This is likely due to the wine tariffs introduced last year imparting an extra fee on certain goods (ahem…wine) from certain European countries. In this episode, we clarify which wines are affected and why this tariff even started in the first place (what does wine have to do with airplanes?!). While we are all about ‘Made in America’ we do love those German Rieslings and other wines made ‘across the pond’. Grab a glass of your fave European wine and listen in to find out if you should be stocking up!
No doubt, we’ve all experienced this scenario: you’re happily driving down the highway, perhaps listening to your favorite podcast (DBP, of course!), and BAM! you come to a dead stop. Those dreaded all-mighty orange cones have worked their power to stop traffic for road work, and now you’re going to be late. The rage truly sets in when you notice there is only one guy working while a few stand around. We understand your frustration DBPeeps and are here to vent, discuss the purpose behind the constant construction, and even some futuristic road ideas that are being proposed (no, not hoverboards…yet!). This episode is the perfect pairing not only for our wine, Groundwork, but for your next car ride – who knows, it may be longer than you anticipate! *PSA: Stay safe and be smart, don’t drink and drive!*
