Oh, the many hats we wear! Have you taken a moment lately to count all the hats you wear in a given day? From spouse to parent to professional/employee, it can be overwhelming to think of the various roles we play in our daily lives. Most people actually never “check out” for the day, but simply change hats. This episode we talk about the balancing act we play with the several hats we wear and how to avoid truly becoming the “Mad Hatter.” So take a break and put on your wine-drinking hat!
Finally! An episode dedicated to our absolute favorite – the legend, the Princess of Pop, the one and only: Whitney Houston. From the very beginning, Whitney possessed a certain magic that would come through in every one of her performances. This episode we discuss her life, our dearest memories with her songs, and why she truly is the ‘greatest love of all’ in the music world. Grab a glass of something bold and listen in as we reflect on the powerful icon that is Whitney.
Need a break from the news? Perhaps an escape to some mindless, yet wildly entertaining, maybe even semi-trashy TV? Well do we have an episode for you! We review our fave binge-worthy shows that will have you keep pressing play on the remote, while losing track of the day. Listen in to find out what your next weekend could bring – a glass (or maybe bottle if you’re binge-watching) and some drama-filled, DBP recommended, juicy shows that will keep you entertained for hours!
If you are a parent, time spent with your kids is the most precious gift of all time. But, everyone needs a break including, and especially, moms! This episode, we interview Mo, the mother of an awesome little dude, to learn how her life changed once she became a mother – a topic we think many can relate to. We delve into the stress of being a parent, how to prevent “mommy burnout” and tips to keep your self-identity outside of mom or dad. We’re sipping “Mommy’s Time Out” which was the perfect escape. So grab your own glass, take a break from the kids, and listen!
It’s time to get a bit nostalgic with your DBP hosts, as we reflect on some of our favorite wines and episodes of the past year. From new beginnings to epidemics, we’ve learned and covered a lot. We’ve had a blast this past year and want to relive some of the magic we’ve experienced. Interested in some wine tips we’ve learned along the way? Listen in! Can you guess some of our favorite topics? Find out if you’re right! For this special occasion, we’re popping the cork of a DBP favorite: Gamba Zinfandel. Thanks for a memorable first year, and cheers to a fruitful – get it? – future with the drunk bitches of DBP!
It all started as a dream out west, where “hicks from the sticks” had a passion for wine but without a platform to stand on. What better way to celebrate our podcast’s 6-month-versary than with an iconic wine and topic that literally brought the great USA into the international wine game?! Popping a bottle of Château Montelena’s Chardonnay, we talk about the 1976 Paris Wine Tasting (aka, the Judgment of Paris) where Californian and French wines went head to head in a blind tasting with a shocking outcome. For an entertaining spin on it, check out the movie Bottle Shock and then listen in as we discuss fact versus fiction about the movie and this historic wine moment! Cheers to Napa’s magnificent triumph!
Your wealth should be measured by who’s in your community, not by what’s in your wallet. Learn about Dunbar’s number, join us for a mini-book club discussion of Sebastian Junger’s “Tribe: A Book on Homecoming and Belonging,” and hear how our society’s evolution has led us down a path of fewer interactions and meaningful relationships, creating more isolation. Quality over quantity, DBPeeps! As we pop open the 2015 Kith & Kin Cabernet Sauvignon, snuggle up with your favorite tribe member and listen in. #whatreallymatters
