    When The Odds Are Against You...Bet On You!

    When The Odds Are Against You...Bet On You!

    James “Buster” Douglas, the former undisputed heavyweight champ of the world, joins us for this special episode of Whiskey Business. The Champ has entered a “new ring” of sorts with "Buster Douglas 42-1" a new bourbon bearing his name(42-1 were the odds against him when he shocked the world 30 years ago by defeating Mike Tyson for the heavyweight championship of the world). Dino and the boys talk about how the whiskey came to be a silver medal award winner in the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and of course about those odds and that legendary fight. Buster gets candid talking about his career, his family, the night he beat Tyson and his loss to Evander Holyfield. It’s an amazing conversation with a very humble man and STILL a champion in so many ways.

    Black Market Bourbon: The Fly In The Whiskey Ointment

    Black Market Bourbon: The Fly In The Whiskey Ointment

    Whiskey Business is back with “The Fight Club” of the whiskey industry...black market bourbon, or what purchasers prefer to call the secondary market. The first rule of black market bourbon may be “Don’t talk about black market bourbon", but Dino and his guests Chay Miller and Sam Hilty did just that. In a lively, informative, and at times argumentative discussion the trio dive deep into the highs and lows of whiskey wheeling and dealing. They also revisit a bottle you don’t have to hit the black market for, Wild Turkey Longbranch, the whiskey love child of Eddie Russel and Matthew McConaughey. So enjoy a sip of your fave ill-gotten bourbon bootie and give a listen.

    If You Can Make It There...

    If You Can Make It There...

    Whiskey Business went remote and live to NYC, the starting epicenter of COVID-19 to talk with 3 talented individuals who continue to make their way through the indiscriminate fog of the virus. Danielle Tripodis (Dino’s daughter) Mike Greco and Kern Rodriguez shared stories, cocktails and thoughts of the future as America begins to slowly open back up. What have these creative and talented people done while quarantined? What will they be doing once they’re back out there? It all makes for interesting talk and pours on this week’s Whiskey Business.

A Remarkable Podcast for Intelligent Drinkers

A friend suggested that I listen to Whiskey Business, and I am now obsessed with it. The concept is witty & briskly fun, with the episodes featuring unexpected moments of emotional warmth amidst stories that are brilliantly engaging. Host Dino has a raging comic streak, a curiosity which propels fantastic interviews, and a voice that resonates with a bourbon caress. He shows respect for his guests, while also asking the questions that reveal both heartfelt emotion and underlying amusing base humor. Ralph Scott’s haunting stories had me enthralled, Travis Irvine had me laughing while respecting his journey, Alex Hastie of Ohio v. The World tells truly fascinating stories, and Dino’s mother was one of my very favorite guests on the podcast. I have taken umbrage with some of the comments made about agriculture, but perhaps this is an opportunity for Dino to interview a farmer to understand their perspective. Thank you to the Whiskey Business team for providing such a remarkable, educational, and amusing podcast!

Hits all the marks!

This podcast just keeps getting better and better. It hits all the marks: funny, poignant, informative. Dino is great at getting his guests to open up and share their stories. He knows when to sit back and listen, when to dig deeper, and when to let loose. And great tips on the whiskeys, too! Keep ‘em coming!
