As you scroll through your favorite social media platform, have you thought about the truth behind the posts? Or how minute details are specially designed for your psyche? Social media may have started as a fun pastime, but has truly evolved into a significant player in American’s lives – and there is much more to it than meets the eye. This episode we try and pull the wool from our eyes, and discuss the reality behind the screen. Do people portray the truth or is social media just one big manipulation put out by tech nerds? Slow your scroll, grab a glass, and listen in to this important episode!
From false walls and fake cobwebs to buried bottles, the vignerons of France came up with some pretty inventive ways to keep the Germans’ hands off their precious treasure: wine! Throughout World War II, the Germans invaded and pillaged the vineyards of their neighboring country, taking any and all wine they could get their hands on, especially the good shit! All of this has been captured in a fantasic book, called Wine & War, which Sarah read to bring us the deets. Whether you’re a history buff, a wine nerd, or just like to read, Wine & War is a fascinating story to immerse yourself!
