    Ep 5 - Wigs: The Modern Wig

    Ep 5 - Wigs: The Modern Wig

    This week, Merin and Kenz go SOLO and celebrate World Gin Day by NOT drinking gin! We talk wigs in the 20th/21st century while sipping on some boxed pinot noir and snacking on Wegman’s gruyere- we’re talking low key, y’all. Listen in to learn about the tedious (and sometimes scary?) wig-making industry, the pro’s of boxed wine, and the way that systemic racism has contributed to the wig industry in the past 60 years. We hope that if you are choosing to listen to Fancy Cheese Tuesday, you are also dedicating time and effort to the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as the ongoing fight for transgender rights.

NateFuller ,

I once was lost, but now I’m found

Wow, I never knew how much I didn’t know about wine, cheese, wine AND cheese, and being fancy in general! This podcast has changed me for the better, and I am truly becoming learned in all of these subjects.

Put on your headphones, grab a snack of your choosing as well as a glass of your favorite wine, and treat yourself to Merin and Kenz’ absolutely non-ASMR podcast where they drink wine, eat cheese, discuss interesting topics related to wine and/or cheese, and reflect on what it means to be fancy.

If nothing above has convinced you to press play yet, Jake Wilson is the producer so like there you go??
