    Ep 28: The Mysterious Origin Of The Fortune Cookie, Seattle: A Buried City and Beasts, Phenoms and Lore from the great Pacific North west

    Ep 28: The Mysterious Origin Of The Fortune Cookie, Seattle: A Buried City and Beasts, Phenoms and Lore from the great Pacific North west

    On this episode of The Flask At Hand Podcast we once again return to our random facts, things and stuffs episode platform. Our whiskey tonight is Benjamin's Bourbon from local distillery Valley Shine in Mount Vernon, WA just a few miles down the road from us! The glasses we're pouring this tasty bourbon in come from another local company called Whiskey Whisdom and the verdict on their American Whiskey Glass is.... it's the best thing since sliced bread. We are literally retiring our glen Cairn glasses. Go to https://www.whiskeywhisdom.com/ to get your American whiskey Glasses and start really enjoying your whisk[e]y. 
    After the whiskey we jump straight into some very interesting topics. We'll travel to 13th century China to try and find out who, what, where and when gave us the virtually tasteless yet fun cookie, the fortune cookie. Could it have really been invented in America? Next we travel beck to our home State and find out what lies beneath the streets of Seattle... Turns out, it's still Seattle just an older version that was buried and rebuilt upon thanks to the great Seattle fire of 1889. You can still tour the underground ruins of the forgotten city. Finally, the fantastic beasts, phenomenon and Lore surrounding the Pacific North West. From the Native American Thunder Bird, jellyfish rain to a bottomless pit of paranormal activity you'll be sure to want to stick around for the whole show.
    As always, Thank you dear listeners for all of your support. Enjoy the show. CHEERS!

Smart, funny and simply a good listen

New listener here and just wanted to say thanks for the laughs. I’m not a whiskey person but you don’t have to be to enjoy this podcast. Your topics in the second half of every show are super interesting and fun and the dynamic between the hosts keep me listening.
