Who interviewed who? Dead Posey or Fred?

I think this was one of the best episodes yet. Danyell and Tony had a genuine interest in learning about bourbon and especially Fred. I thought it was very nice that they were just as interested in Fred’s story, his being a veteran, his charity involvement as Fred was in their story.

Glad to see this podcast is coming: high quality, integrity, bourbon, and musicians…count me in

My initial review was written in anticipation of this podcast: now I’m updating it after having heard the first four episodes….

…and my 5-star rating remains unchanged. Recognize that these interviews do not focus solely upon spirits: the conversations flow as an interesting discussion. Yes, bourbon will come into the discussion. I appreciate getting exposed to musicians that I typically wouldn’t hear of. I look forward to each episode.

My original review is below:
———————
I’m smiling in anticipation of this podcast (and also based upon its trailer).

My first exposure to Fred was through his bourbon books… then through podcasts where he was a guest… then from a podcast where he joined some existing hosts… then from his Youtube materials.

I find him to always be PRESENT in his discussions, and to have a very REAL rapport with the people he talks with, and that he maintains his own persona and opinions (even if they don't fully mesh with the person he is talking to). (He’s also extremely knowledgeable on bourbon and spirits, to say the least, and I've found the quality and integrity of his materials to be extremely high).

As Fred only provides a numerical score of a whisky after tasting it 3 times, I will update this review (text, and star-count) by end-February, based upon the actual episodes broadcast.
