Life, limbs, booze, and personalities. SDV explores the liquor industry from both sides of the bar by interviewing the greatest personalities in the game. Although sometimes diverging into film, music, and non-booze topics, SDV is just about people with great stories. Sip, sit back, and enjoy.
Ep 297 - Sylvia Philion: A Quiet Place
Back on September 19th 2019, when things were a little different, I had the opportunity to sit down with the amazing Silvia Philion, founder of Mezcaloteca. This beautiful and quaint Mezcaleria in Oaxaca Centro reminds me of a past life, a former glory, and many other emotions that are almost overwhelming. But in the midst of this feeling today, Sylvia's story is an incredible one, and I hope you enjoy the return of the podcast with thoughts of sipping beautiful Mezcal together again. We chat advertising, scalability, and the universe.
Ep 296 - Kerrin Egalka: Fireside Chat #3
The world of whiskey has been forever changed by Compass Box, but the brand is knocked into the stratosphere by folks like Kerrin Egalka. Good with numbers, cats, cocktails, and conversation, we chat about this interesting time and her recent experiences in Houston on lockdown. Listen for some Black Sabbath, Pickles, Nintendo, and whiskey chat.
Ep 295 - Adam Harris: Fireside Chat #2
The world of whiskey wages on even despite the world seemingly being at a halt. In this week's chat, I sit down with one of the world's favorite whiskey men, Adam Harris. As he sits and sips some Booker's 25th Anniversary Bourbon in Houston, we ponder life, film, and what we can do to think about one's self in these times. We chat QT, Brad Pitt, Squirrels, and more.
Ep 294 - Antonio Matta: Fireside Chat #1
The Covid19 world is new and different. So I'm taking the time out, in reverence to Social Distancing, to do some remote chats on Instagram Live. This is the first of many with my good friend Antonio Matta. He's a great bartender, and manager with an astute interest in all things agave. We chat Metal, horror, and more.
Ep 293 - Leslie Cobos: A Rebel With a Cause
It has been a very serpentine road for Cinco Sentido's Leslie Cobos. Spending much of her youth in Ciudad de Juarez and El Paso, her Mexican heritage paired perfectly with her affinity for hospitality. With a formative move to Fort Worth, the challenges of understanding American culture, learning English, and fitting into the new environment met her head on. After leaving the world of politics disillusioned by the system, an agave opportunity changed her life forever. We chat Mezcal, travel, cultural heritage, and that DJ life....
Ep 292 – Charlie Moore: It All Works Out in the End
Dalla’s Charlie Moore has worked in many different areas of the hospitality industry, but like many others, whiskey became his true calling. With early days in Iowa and a bit of troublemaking intermixed, Charlie shuffled jobs for a bit before finally falling in love with hospitality. His love of people, learning, and structure combined perfectly to provide a larger sense of purpose. And as Dallas’ cocktail scene started to thrive, Charlie found larger and more creative opportunities. Now, as the a leading whiskey ambassador in Texas, what challenges and struggles are in store? We chat Glendronach, fatherhood, trouble, and more.

If you like spirits, this is a must.
If you’re into booze and the stories/makers behind them, then add this podcast to your list. But the podcast is so much more than booze—it’s about great conversation too. Mike is able to cultivate worthwhile and relaxed conversation, with a little bit of humor too. Show de Vie is truly unique in that it interviews all the important people in spirits that you don’t even know of. Take a listen and learn something new.
Mike G is The Man
Sincere and soulful conversations covering the best of topics. (Also has the best intro song)
