So much fun

I always look forward to new episodes. It feels like I’m sitting with my best friends talking about great wine and books. Great insight and I only wish I could find some of the wines more easily where I live. Please keep new content coming !

Fun podcast!

This is a fun podcast featuring two fascinating women with opinions on just about everything from wine to movies to language to daily happenings in their lives in Mallorca. I only docked them one star because they need to be a bit closer to their microphone when recording their episodes. But content wise it is spot on and fun to listen to.
