Mmm hummm

I love the podcast. But please Johanna stop with the Mmm hum affirmations. It’s a bit distracting.

Fantastic Podcast but…….

I enjoy the passion and sincerity of all the podcasts here. The information is invaluable. I enjoy them immensely. However the amount of times the word “ like” is used is beyond my understanding. For every time the word “ like” is used and if I was given a dollar each time…. It would be like… thousands of dollars.

The perfect blend

Finally a podcast with the right balance of educational content, personal anecdotes, and personalities of the beverage world. This one gets it right. The hosts are knowledgeable without pretension and tackle trends from unique angles (e.g., in flight drinks in the age of the canned cocktail). Well done!
