Thought and a Chaser is an irregular dive into the world of libations, language, and logistics.
Each episode, we bring you one big topic, one small topic, and a bit about what we're drinking. Our motto: Drink what you like, and know what you're drinking.
Thought and a Chaser is brought to you by Adult Juice Box.

23: "Vitis Vinifera is the parent of all wine" & "Socialist Champagne"
This week! Philip marvels at the history of Vitis Vinifera, and it's long history with humanity. Yes, it makes wine, but there's more there than even we were expecting.
Comrade! The time for revolution is upon us! Throw off the shackles of the oppressor and drink champagne!

21: "Underberg helps digestion. By poisioning you." & "The Great Wine Heist"
Philip talks about Underberg, and the whole category of herbal digestifs --do they work? How? What's with that Underberg jingle?
Liam walks us through wine's criminal underbelly, and the daring Christmas thefts that rocked the California fine wine scene. Ho Ho Ho, mushroom farmer.
20: "Terroir is how a wine is made" & "Destiel made Putin resign"
So. It has come to this. I really think this combination of wine maker blasphemy and absurd internet garbage is a fitting blend for episode 20 of this podcast.
This week: Philip profanes the word terroir and Liam flushes us down the tumblr hole.

19: "Tannins help wine age. Probably." & "New Albion's role in the history of craft brewing"
This week! Has been a week. What a week, in fact. Thankfully we recorded this before the election, because who knows what would have happened otherwise.
This week! Philip talks about tannins in wine, what they do, and how they help wine age. Probably. Maybe.
Liam gives an oral history of New Albion brewing, and it's role in the history of craft beer.

Interesting facts about the history of wine in the United States.
It’s Almost Educational
This is a pretty good happy medium between a “two guys say funny things” podcast and an “I just learned something interesting” podcast. Highly recommended for long drives and background chatter for chores.
