Next day delivery!! Most of us have fallen into the Amazon wolftrap of at-your-fingertips delivery of absolutely everything from eggs to curtains. I mean, it’s hard not to! How can you turn down the service that has single-handedly changed the nation’s framework in how goods reach the consumer? Need a frame to put a picture up? Amazon Prime it for tomorrow! And don’t forget to check all the reviews to make sure you’re getting the best one! Have you ever wondered, though, what is behind the curtain of convenience? Well, it may surprise you, and even get you to question the entire way you live your life (dramatic, but maybe) – we are diving into the Jeff Bezos way of running a business! You will definitely need to sip on something delish for this one!
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!

We thought we’d bring it back to the basics and talk about one of the most important things we can do for our health…Sleep!! On the heels of Sleep Awareness Week, we discuss why catching those Zzzs is so important, the habits and practices that can improve our sleep quality, and offer tips & tricks to getting a good night’s sleep. We find out our sleep quirks that make us all unique…and if that glass of warm milk actually works. Grab a glass, your favorite blanket (weighted – maybe?), and snuggle into this episode!
Brrr…it’s cold outside! While the freeze may be no fun for most, it is essential to make Icewine, or Eiswein as the Germans say! We decided to show appreciation for the winter season with a tasting of not one but THREE types of Icewine! This sweet wine is unique from other dessert wines because of the strict laws and and harsh conditions required to make it. Canada’s not only known for its maple syrup, but for being the largest producer of Icewine, so it’s perfect that we opted to drink G.Marquis Icewine from Ontario while discussing this wine delicacy.
When you start messing with the fate of wine, your DBP hosts’ most-beloved beverage, you’ve caught our attention. Climate change is no joke and it’s definitely causing a stir for wine-growing regions, especially those niche regions. Will Canada be able to continue making their signature icewine? Will we have to say goodbye to our favorite familiar varietals and welcome lesser-known ones? Will new wine regions pop up that we could have never imagined (Russian wine, anyone)? We don’t know for sure, but we had fun hypothesizing what opportunities and potential changes may be in store. We are definitely not scientists, but we can for damn sure speculate on wine. And we got our hands on a rare treat – a red wine from the only desert in the middle of a country that is 50% frozen: Canada!
