Ep72: Boobies

Boobies…we got ’em, and we gotta take care of ’em! With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, we thought what better time to focus our conversation – and beverage – on the twins we’ve got on the front of our bodies. One in eight woman will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, a sobering statistic for sure. The good news is there are higher survival rates and technology that improves detection. Still, breast cancer is a scary thing, and we want to be sure our DBPeeps are informed and have a better understanding of how to support those affected. While drinking the Montes Twins red blend, we run through recent statistics surrounding breast cancer, preventive measures, symptoms, and resources that exist. So wear pink, pour a drink, and cheers to boobies!

Ep70: What’s All The Hoopla About – The Scooter Invasion

Scootin’ around town has now taken a literal translation since actual scooters are suddenly everywhere! As these electric “vehicles” invade downtown areas of cities around the country, we couldn’t help but ask – What’s all the hoopla about? Well, for one (or two or three), they are cheap, convenient, and fun!! But this seemingly innocent and attractive new transit option can come with dangerous risk of serious injury or death if not used properly. Sipping on Hoopla California Cabernet, we discuss the current controversy around the scooter invasion and ponder if they are here to stay or a fad that will fizzle.

Ep68: Rock You Like a Hurricane

In the wake of Hurricane Dorian, we find ourselves wondering storm specifics – what was the deadliest storm in our nation? What do the categories actually mean? And how in the hell do they come up with these names?! Seriously?! This gave us the perfect opportunity to drink Storm Point Red Blend from South Africa while we ponder these weather wonders. Grab a glass and listen in…a storm is coming!

Ep54: Napa Know How!

Now it’s time for a recap of our time in Napa Valley. From tasting rooms to vineyards, we had a variety of experiences through a range of widely accessible wines to limited productions! As we recount the rest of our first DBP trip to the motherland, we share everything from the Summer Release Event at Round Pond to a one-on-one tasting at the world-class Joseph Phelps with a spectacular view of their vineyards. Do as the “napkins” (aka, people from Napa) do, pour a glass and get transported to the DBP motherland!

Ep53: Charity Gone South

In the spirit of giving and helping the needy, donating old or “out of style” clothing always makes us feel charitable. But where do your clothes really go? What if we told you as far away as to Africa?! And that they were actually being sold, not given away! Wake up and smell the cash! We did, and decided to share with you all we’ve learned about our nation’s approach to clothing donation in this episode – everything from “fast fashion” to what you should absolutely never do with your old clothes! We paired this topic with Purple Heart Red Wine, a charitable wine to discuss a charitable (or maybe not, we will let you decide!) topic!

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!

Ep40: Assaults on Healthcare Workers: A Shocking Realization

O. M. G. Not only does this describe our wine pairing for this episode, but it also sums up our feelings about recent news! The media has highlighted some recent attacks on healthcare workers – as it should – and we’re shocked by some of the motives behind these attacks and the outcomes! Although healthcare workers are supposed to keep patients safe…who’s keeping them safe? How can they be expected to do their jobs without proper safety and security precautions on work premises? In this episode, we mention a few closer-to-home events that have played out like Grey’s Anatomy episodes, and talk about what more can and should be done to prevent more events like these. Make sure you’ve got a glass of wine in hand when you listen to this one!
