Ep50: Evolution of an Epidemic

Nobody likes to fail, but the US may be dubbed as a failure of one of the biggest public health achievements in our history. How, you ask? Not even halfway through the year, this country is already seeing the greatest number of measles cases in over 25 years – with more than 700 confirmed cases across 22 states as of the date of recording! As anti-vaxxers become more prevalent, with pockets of non-immunized communities popping up around the country, our most vulnerable are at risk. Even a small dip in immunity of the nation’s population can make this very contagious disease a threat. A topic that demands attention, yours truly delve into the details behind the spread of this potentially fatal virus and talk about the propaganda put out there…it’s absolutely terrifying!! As we discuss the evolution of this potential epidemic, we thought what better to sip on than Evolution White Wine from Oregon…grab a glass and listen in!

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!

Ep48: Celebrity Wines: Yay or Nay?

What do you do when you are famous and have more money than God? Buy a winery, of course! More and more, we have been seeing wine with a celebrity behind the label. Some make it pretty obvious that they are the proprietor of the winery (i.e., ACDC’s Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon), while others we would have no idea! With a bottle of 2016 Uncaged Chardonnay by Z. Alexander Brown (or Zac Brown – who knew?!), we get into whether or not celebrities should be taken seriously as winemakers, and who of the ‘who’s who’ is making wine. Is it a Yay or Nay? You might have to try yourself to find out, so grab a bottle of your fave celeb’s wine and listen in!

Ep47: Under the Knife

“I’m a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world!” Wait, hold up, we didn’t just travel back to 1997, but we ARE talking about the craze for people going plastic, or rather, under the knife! Of course, plastic surgery has its place, but is society that uncomfortable in their own skin to need to nip and tuck everywhere? And at what point does it become an addiction? From brows to boobs to butts, cosmetic surgery can do just about anything. Are you into the idea of continually striving for perfection, or do you prefer Zero Manipulation, like the name of our wine? Listen in as we discuss the rise of the implant, all while drinking this unfined and unfiltered California blend!

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!

Ep44: Canada, Climates, and Cru

When you start messing with the fate of wine, your DBP hosts’ most-beloved beverage, you’ve caught our attention. Climate change is no joke and it’s definitely causing a stir for wine-growing regions, especially those niche regions. Will Canada be able to continue making their signature icewine? Will we have to say goodbye to our favorite familiar varietals and welcome lesser-known ones? Will new wine regions pop up that we could have never imagined (Russian wine, anyone)? We don’t know for sure, but we had fun hypothesizing what opportunities and potential changes may be in store. We are definitely not scientists, but we can for damn sure speculate on wine. And we got our hands on a rare treat – a red wine from the only desert in the middle of a country that is 50% frozen: Canada!

Ep43: Picket Fences

Buying or selling a house can be so stressful AND confusing! It also really makes you feel like you’re #adulting hard. Our friend Ben joins us this episode to share his realtor-expertise about navigating the process, the do’s and don’ts (like making yourself “at home” while out on home visits!), and how to figure out what’s important to you. 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.

Ep42: Switzerland Wines

If you thought the Swiss were only good at making cheese fondue, you may be sorely mistaken! This episode we explore the discreet wine-making region of Switzerland, where some of the steepest vineyards in the world are located! We got our hands on a bottle of Petite Arvine from the Valais Region of Switzerland- which is not easy to do since the Swiss drink nearly all the wine they make! But you don’t need a bottle of Swiss wine to listen and enjoy!
