Episode 65 Wine and Music

Talking to plants was introduced in the 60’s and 70’s, so playing music to wine should affect wine too, from smooth jazz to acid rock. The amazing life of plants involves the taste and texture of wine. Discussions with Sheri Hood, Courtney Taylor-Taylor and Jay Boberg were entertaining and mind bending. Another cast by the Four Top that stimulates the taste buds of your mind.

Informative, Great conversation, Good Finds

Love the podcast - great format with multiple guests (different each week). Very conversational which makes for an easy listen. Content is also rich in that it isn't recycled information you frequently hear in other places. Unique content, fun, with great variety around food & beverage.
