Thinking back 20 years ago, we never thought we would already be in the era of electric and self-driving cars (Back to the Future, anyone?) As this technology is pushed to become more mainstream – we want to truly understand if they are for the better. Are they more environmentally-friendly and safer to us, the drivers? Or is there a sinister hand at play? Join us while we debate the future of vehicles while we sip on Sinister Hand Red Wine from Columbia Valley.
Spring ahead, fall back…it’s the saying we hear twice a year that drives us mad! Whose idea was it to institute daylight savings time? Does everybody recognize it? And why, oh why, do we still have it? We break down the arguments for and against this widespread practice while ‘Day’ drinking, if you catch our drift. Grab a glass to listen or help you adjust to the changing clocks!
This episode we talk singularity, and we aren’t referring to the relationship type (although that’s what Sarah thought it meant)! Singularity refers to when technology will become uncontrollable and be irreversible. And if you’re like us and thought that was millenia away, you are likely wrong – it could be just a few years away! And here we thought Alexa was creepy…scared yet?! We discuss what type of AI is out there, what it means to us, and of course what Elon Musk thinks about all this. Are we ready to give up our jobs and potentially even our human race to robots?! You’ll need a glass of wine to wrap your head around this episode!
When thinking of iconic New York dishes, most of us refer to staples like the reuben sandwich or traditional cheesecake. Well perhaps some NY wine would pair well with your NY bagel? Who knew that the state of NY has recently been the third largest producer of wine in the U.S., with over 300 wineries across 9 AVAs?! This episode we take a little detour to learn about a well-established, yet little known region right here in our own backyard!
Close encounters…and we don’t mean the late night, lust-filled rendezvous or frisky dating-app type! This episode we discuss the extraterrestrial, green martian kind of encounters. The ones of the third kind. Throughout history, there’ve been countless UFO sightings, but is there any truth to them or is it just people’s imaginations running wild? And what about Area 51? We call into question a number of conspiracy theories involving these flying saucers, life beyond earth, and our own perspectives on the supernatural. So grab a glass of one of your most precious earthly possessions (wine, of course!) and listen in!
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is the latest rage exploding in stores everywhere! From CBD-oil to CBD-infused water, it is in every product imaginable (CBD bath bombs, even?!) Is this hemp-derived agent truly the “cure-all” for whatever ails you, or is there more to it? We get down to the bottom of the hot, new, and seemingly innocent cannabis extract. What better way to let loose talking about the latest medicinal trend than while sipping on Dr. L Riesling.
As the fires blaze in one of our favorite parts of the world, we can’t help but wonder why it seems like California is literally burning down. From year to year, California wine country has experienced increasingly devastating disasters and we want to know why! Has Mother Nature lost her shit or are we actually to blame for the destruction? Discussing the threat to one of our most precious commodities, we indulge in Colossal Red Wine which seems to fit the magnitude of this issue. Grab your own glass and listen in!
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.
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!
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!
