yes to growth + next step

i’m loving the changes to the format of the show this season. the format considers that we are learners, and fills in some of the informational gaps, while also maintaining the casual/ comical steez y’all have. THANK YOU

the only element i have to offer up at this point is maybe including photos of the labels or listing of the wines discussed after the show- maybe on IG. i want to follow up and try so many of the wines, and after a show I end up skimming through for the names.

Awesome and informative!

Thanks to Natural Disasters I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look at a glass of wine again without paying special attention to its ‘rim variation’!

Like Hanging Out With Your Friends...

...if your friends never let you get in a word edgewise.

I want to like this podcast. So much so that I tune in every week. But time and time again I find myself getting frustrated at the topics and the hosts. Pretentious. Erratic. Confusing. Contradictory. These are some of the words that come to mind if I were asked to describe Natural Disasters.

The two hosts constantly step on each other, half finishing sentences, half finishing thoughts, half finishing the actual point to whatever subject they’re touching on. I’m not even finished with the episode on ordering in a restaurant, and it takes one host what feels like an eternity talking about scanning the wine list before she tells you just to buy her book—something she hits you over the head with in season 1, and I thought we’d escaped by season 2...

PROTIP: People will buy the book if they like what they’re hearing. Telling us you’re going to withhold information just because you have a book out feels chintzy and cheap.

I’m bummed to leave a 3-star review because the book (Wine. All the Time) IS informative, but this podcast is just infuriating.

All I’ve learned is that the hosts love Kanye, one is obsessed with natural wine to a fault (she might say it’s okay you like Charles Shaw because everyone has to start somewhere, adding, “we’re not all perfect.”), and the other host is a certified sommelier who at once seems to both love and despise everything about wine and the industry.

Switch out your rage driving music for an episode of Natural Disasters.
