Criminal offenses in the name of wine?! It’s true, they do exist and there are quite a few. This episode we explore the lawless delinquents that have tarnished the world of wine – from silly offenses like a highway heist of wine (wait….what??!) to more negligent crimes that have caused serious and irreparable damage to winemakers and drinkers alike. You’ll need to have a drink with us as we review the baddest behaviors in the wine industry.
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!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a top-secret agent? Well, the DBP girls definitely have! Listen in as we talk about different levels of covert operations, various espionage tactics, and speculate what life would be like as a NOC (aka “Non-official Cover” in the CIA world). We also tell the story behind a former NOC whose identity was leaked to the public (not so secret anymore!), its impact, and the most recent developments of the 15-year-old scandal. What better to drink with this topic than the refreshing Secret Identity Rosé! Crack one open and sip along!
