Ep55: Caffeinated Nation

Are you one of those people that needs coffee to get  through the day (and, perhaps, ends it with wine)? Have you ever thought, is this really my fourth cup of coffee and it’s only noon? We’re sure you’ve questioned how much is too much – just like us. In this episode, we learn not all caffeine is created equally and delve into the health benefits and risks of drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages. So even if you’re an energy drink junkie, we’ve got news for you, too! Listen in as we discuss our other favorite beverage, as we kick it up a notch by pairing our topic with not only wine, but espresso too!

Ep49: Kaleidoscope of Ethics

Nature versus Nurture? This age-old question takes us to our interesting topic on the ethics behind scientific research, specifically involving twins. Identical twins share the same genes, making them the perfect study subjects for testing the impact of environment and genetic makeup on anything from the aging process to vocal or facial recognition to mental health. But how far can/should you take it? According to the book Identical Strangers, apparently as far as separating multiple births intentionally in the name of research! Listen in as we get deep into the weeds on this one – it’s a doozy! Get ready for some heavy sighs as we pair our episode with Prisma Pinot Noir from Chile, as there are several facets to this topic…a kaleidoscope if you will!

Ep46: Operation Varsity Blues

Aunt Becky did what?! If you’ve been paying attention the last couple weeks, a recent court filing named over 50 individuals who’re at the heart of a huge scandal rocking some of the US’s biggest college campuses, including two favorite TV moms. Whether it be correcting standardized test scores or faking athletic prowess, these two women and other wealthy families are being reviewed for their involvement. And it’s not just the parents; athletic directors, admissions counselors, and expert test takers are some of the other guilty parties. So what’s going to happen to these adults – who should know better! – and the students? Only time will tell, but “wealthy” doesn’t mean you can fly under the justice radar!

Buying or selling a house can be so stressful AND confusing! It also really makes you feel like you’re #adulting hard.

You may be looking for a Picket Fence, like the name of our wine, or maybe a big bathtub…no matter what it is, we’re positive this episode will get you laughing and more confident about how to find a perfect home.

Ep37: The Magic of the 45th

Some call it the “Magnificent Mile” for wine growing, but what is really behind all the fuss of the 45th parallel? This invisible line runs halfway between the equator and the North Pole, where some of the best wines of the world are grown. We delve into the fascination of this geographical prominence – is it really magical or is there more to it? – all while drinking a namesake wine coming from the Rhône valley itself, which is knee-deep in those 45 degrees of latitude.

Ep33: Popping the Bubbly for Royalty

It’s that time of year! Time to celebrate and be merry! And we think that bubbly is a perfect pairing for your holiday and new year’s festivities! And you know who else does? The Queen, of course! This episode we pop open a bottle of Bollinger Champagne (the Queen’s fave!) and discuss the significance of this bubbly beverage with the British Royal family, the difference between sparkling wine and champagne, and what makes them all fun and fizzy! We also get into why we, and the rest of the world, are fascinated with the British Royal Family – and top it all off with what some of their Royal Christmas traditions are. Because, hey – it’s that time of year! Trust us – some will definitely surprise you! So grab a bottle of some Champs (or other sparkling wine of choice), pop that baby open, and get fancy with us!

Ep23: A to Z: Anxiety and Gen Z

This week, we find ourselves mentally transported to our high school days, as we address recent protests by students who oppose mandatory academic presentations. Through social media, students launched an attack on in-class presentations with the argument that it makes them feel uncomfortable and for some, increases anxiety. The DBP girls try to get to the bottom of the real issue at hand and counter that it’s these skills that help prepare our youth for the future. You might need more than one glass to get through this episode, so pick up a bottle of A to Z and get ready to hit the books, uh, we mean get ready to hear the DBP views!
