2020 was definitely one for the books, with pretty much everyone ready to slam the door on the year and start fresh with a new one. Since we didn’t think everyone wanted to relive the dark incidents that will brand 2020 for years to come, we decided to dedicate this episode to highlighting some of the more uplifting events of the year and share some of our personal triumphs and accomplishments. Pour yourself something fabulous to toast as we ring in the New Year and say BUH-BYE to 2020!
Boy, do we have a surprise for all of you! We won’t say much, just to POP a bottle with us and listen in to our latest news! We’re drinking Parts & Labor red blend, so maybe that’ll keep you guessing. Listen in and find out!
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!
Your DBP hosts had a memorable evening with the stars! Well, sort of! Last week we had the opportunity of a lifetime to attend the Chicago premiere of SOMM3, the third installment of the documentary series which has brought to light some unique aspects of the wine world. The film brings back some of our favorite folks from the earlier films – and allowed us to take a peek into some private tastings with some of the wine world’s most prestigious peeps: Fred Dame, Jancis Robinson, and Steven Spurrier. As we pop open a bottle from one of the vineyards which took down the French wines in 1976 and in honor of Dame’s “a-ha” wine, hear our thoughts on the film, our “a-ha” wines – including those of the movie’s director Jason, Dustin, and D’Lynn’s which we learned from the screening’s live Q&A session. So much fun and can’t wait to do our own blind tasting!
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!
