Addicted

Obsessed with this podcast! I burn through an episode on my commute to work and have to wait another week for a new episode. It’s light, informative and puts me in a good mood. I feel like I’m actually in the tasting room with Jason while listening to this podcast. Each episode covers different wines, spirits and stories of experts who break it all down minus the snobbery so it keeps it interesting and fun. He experiments with weird pairings and takes you along on his adventures so it feels like you’re there hanging out with him.. but can I come hang out irl please?? I’d recommend this podcast to anyone looking to learn more about wines, cocktails, pairings and how to appreciate what you’re tasting even more.

Engaging, digestible!

Everyday Drinking (and its newsletter counterpart) is a refreshing take on the glut of food and drink media out there. Basically, this is a melding of high and low, there is something in it for everyone, and it makes seemingly tough-to-access topics, like wine or more obscure spirits, significantly more accessible with engaging stories behind them. Highly recommend.
