Elevating our narrative
I’ve learned so many amazing stories about people of color in the wine industry with this podcast! Highly recommend!
Excellent Wine Podcast!!
This podcast keeps me interested, awake and entertained. Sukari has done a magnificent job of blending both the story of the Juice and the personal story of the person being interviewed. May I please make a suggestion? Please please please eliminate the distracting background music. Because of it, it’s very difficult to hear the speakers. It takes away from the interview.
Wanda Cole’s interview is a great example. Otherwise, job well done!!!
