Batman & Robin, Peter Pan & Tinkerbell…one doesn’t sound complete without the other. This episode we pay homage to the supporting characters that make our treasured heroes great – the sidekicks, of course! There is more to a sidekick than just being a tag along – they are all kinds of important – and we decided to hone in on exactly why and talk about our all-time favorite sidekicks from books, movies, and real life. Grab a friend or your own personal sidekick, a glass of something spectacular, and listen in!
From false walls and fake cobwebs to buried bottles, the vignerons of France came up with some pretty inventive ways to keep the Germans’ hands off their precious treasure: wine! Throughout World War II, the Germans invaded and pillaged the vineyards of their neighboring country, taking any and all wine they could get their hands on, especially the good shit! All of this has been captured in a fantasic book, called Wine & War, which Sarah read to bring us the deets. Whether you’re a history buff, a wine nerd, or just like to read, Wine & War is a fascinating story to immerse yourself!
