We finally did it! Not only are we doing a vertical tasting this episode – trying 4 bottles of the same wine, each a different vintage – but, we are also breaking out our Coravin! Join us for this special wine experience, as we drink through Silverado Zinfandel from Napa Valley.
Bet you didn’t think there was a wine out there called Furmint, but in fact, there is! You’d probably also be surprised to hear it is from one of the only countries that has its own oak too – Hungary! Not only does Hungary sit on the same latitude as the infamous Burgundy, but it produces a wine that was once called “the wine of kings and the king of wines.” Pour yourself something fit for a king and explore Hungry for Hungary with us!
This episode we talk singularity, and we aren’t referring to the relationship type (although that’s what Sarah thought it meant)! Singularity refers to when technology will become uncontrollable and be irreversible. And if you’re like us and thought that was millenia away, you are likely wrong – it could be just a few years away! And here we thought Alexa was creepy…scared yet?! We discuss what type of AI is out there, what it means to us, and of course what Elon Musk thinks about all this. Are we ready to give up our jobs and potentially even our human race to robots?! You’ll need a glass of wine to wrap your head around this episode!
Just across the Adriatic Sea from Italy lies the small, yet stunningly beautiful country of Croatia. Besides the miles of crystal clear coastline and hundreds of gorgeous islands, there’s also wine! And lots of it! Unique to Croatia are several varietals of wine that you probably have never heard of, but are surprisingly delicious. Indigenous grapes like Graševina or Plavac Mali might be hard to pronounce, but not to drink. Grab a glass and take a trip with us across the world to sunny Croatia and explore their remarkable wine culture with us! A must try and a must listen!

Better to give than to receive goes the saying, and we couldn’t agree more! This episode, we delve into the art of gift giving. What truly makes the perfect gift, and how have our outlooks on “presents!!” changed throughout the years? We share our favorites, and what we’ve tried in the past. Who knows, you might get some ideas for your next gift purchase! Treat yourself to a glass of wine and sit back and listen in!
Batman & Robin, Peter Pan & Tinkerbell…one doesn’t sound complete without the other. This episode we pay homage to the supporting characters that make our treasured heroes great – the sidekicks, of course! There is more to a sidekick than just being a tag along – they are all kinds of important – and we decided to hone in on exactly why and talk about our all-time favorite sidekicks from books, movies, and real life. Grab a friend or your own personal sidekick, a glass of something spectacular, and listen in!
