Ep106: Sounds of Silence

In a world of noise and chaos, most of us are constantly searching for just a few moments of peace and quiet, and as the pandemonium around us gets louder, it becomes harder and harder to find that inner silence. Well, we may have found the perfect solution to get away from it all – float therapy! And we aren’t talking the root beer kind! This episode we interview Andy, the owner and founder of Float Milwaukee, a local float spa. Floating is a relaxation therapy in which one floats in a pod full of salt water, eliminating external stimuli and giving the body a reset. And there are several health benefits far more than just noise relief! Listen in and find out from Andy how floating may just be your newest way to unwind, rest, and rejuvenate! A glass of relaxing red pairs excellently with this episode!

Ep103: Happy Trails

Itching for adventure but maybe getting on a plane is not feeling like the right move these days? A good ol’ campfire might be just what you need, and what better time to grab a backpack, hit the road, and find a secluded outdoor place to hang for awhile (or maybe just one night for some of us)! This episode, we explore the different ways you can camp out – or even glamp out – and get ideas for our next outdoor expedition. ‘Tis the season for tents, s’mores, and being one with nature – just don’t forget to add wine!

Ep98: To Pet or Not to Pet

That is the question! It truly is for some of us who are in need of a furry friend, yet unsure if it is the right fit. This episode we delve in to the pros and cons of having a pet, as well as the different types of pets to consider (who knew a mouse could be a pet?)! Once you decide on a pet, we have tips on where to find your next best friend. This is a time when many of us are contemplating pet ownership (including one of us!), and we thought we’d bring the pet debate front and center. Why not listen in with a glass of one of your favorites and decide for yourself!

February is American Heart Month and we’ve decided to go red in not just wine, but in heart health awareness. As the number one killer in the nation, heart disease can be preventable and we want to make sure you know how!

You’d be surprised at what matters – especially for women! So this month, think more than just candy hearts and GO RED! #ourhearts

Ep73: Lovin’ Lovino

We love Sangria. Wine combined with fruit…what’s not to love?! So we were tickled when we found out that an awesome Sangria was practically being made in our backyard! This episode we had the pleasure of sitting down with Jennifer Clearwater, owner and CEO of Lovino Sangria which is made right here in our own state of Wisconsin (from California grapes no less). Listen in and learn the background behind Jennifer’s passion project and how Lovino came to be! Trust us, this isn’t your typical bottled Sangria and it isn’t your typical story. Grab a glass with your favorite wine girls (or boys) and drink the Lovino way; that is, shared with friends and preferably around an open fire (listening to DBP of course)!

As Jennifer says, “Dream big and make the impossible happen!”

Ep71: Up In Smoke

Vaping, touted as a “safe” alternative to smoking, has flooded the market in the past decade with kids in middle school adopting the habit. I mean there are bubblegum and candy flavors, so it has to be okay, right? WRONG! Recently, cases of severe lung illness and even death attributed to e-cigarettes are increasingly making national headlines. Some states have taken the initiative to ban e-cigarettes, and the POTUS is considering an emergency nation-wide ban. Are these extreme measures, or is our government warranted in their alarmest reaction? Listen in as we discuss what’s behind the flavored aerosol vapor that has swept our nation, all while drinking a lovely Pouilly Fume (and find out if it’s actually smoky or if that’s just the namesake).

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!
