    Martin Kennedy & Pat Byrne: GO BUA OR GO HOME

    Martin Kennedy & Pat Byrne: GO BUA OR GO HOME

    Whiskey Business loves being the first kid on the block with something special and on this podcast we got the sneak peek of some NEW Irish Whiskeys from BUA which originates here in Columbus but is made with tender, Irish care in Ireland. What I called “fightin’ whiskey was a single grain but there were also some single malts that were finished in tawny port casks, ALL of them great including the BUA Original which has come a long way since we sampled Batch #1 a few years back. 
    Great whiskey coupled with great stories from Martin and Pat made for a great podcast that went “into the wee” hours of the evening and probably could gone on even more. Enjoy this batch of podcasting with a good pour, but if I were you…I’d bring the whole bottle.

    Steve Dimon: The O.G. of Influencers

    Steve Dimon: The O.G. of Influencers

    A “lobbyist” is NOT a strange person who hangs out in hotel lobbies. Got it. 
    They are however, the behind the scenes movers and shakers of influence; be it political, business related or other miscellaneous agendas. 
    Steve Dimon has been a lobbyist for 30 plus years and gave us an inside look into the job that some deem as evil while others consider it a needed ally for success. What are YOUR perceptions? Validate them or be surprised at how this world really works on this latest edition of WHISKEY BUSINESS.

    The Mayor of Swartytown, Dan Swarthout!

    The Mayor of Swartytown, Dan Swarthout!

    It’s easy to see why we think Dan is "The Man" on this particular podcast because our good friend, Dan Swarthout has worn many hats over the course of his life: lawyer, comedian, Mayor of Powell, Ohio, 18+ years of comedically prepping a crowd before the start of Ohio Lottery’s Cash Explosion TV show (taking a breath here) “early” podcast pioneer, and TV historian!
    The show could’ve been, in length, about any of the above, but we tried to cover them all and in the process went down some delightful rabbit holes that will surprise and please. Enjoy this latest episode of WHISKEY BUSINESS.

    Leather and Oak Spirits: 100% In So Many Ways

    Leather and Oak Spirits: 100% In So Many Ways

    Whiskey Business kicked off the New Year with a new bourbon and a fairly new distillery to usher in 2024. 
    Leather and Oak Spirits founded in 2019 out of Hilliard, Ohio joined the podcast as Steve Lambert and Dave Sheppard shared their journey with not only a fine bourbon but also a nice limoncello that the boys crank out with love and care. 
    The bourbon was about as old school as you could get. 100% corn. The limoncello was about as old country as you could get as they eventually got the recipe from a lovely Italian woman who finally caved and allowed Steve and Dave to share it with the world. 
    It’s a fun chat about the love of whiskey and more importantly the time and care that goes into making a good one. Here we go, people! Whiskey Business is back!

    The Comedy of Politics,

    The Comedy of Politics,

    Comedian Mike Larsen returned to Whiskey Business and was locked and comedically loaded to talk about the aftermath of November 7th voting in Ohio, while also taking a peek at the presidential election in 2024. 
       Politics are always divisive but if we don’t find a way to laugh, we cry. No tears on this episode. The conversation got serious at times but laughter was never too far away. 
       Larsen, who had a long career in television comedy writing while living in Los Angeles actually ran for office here in Ohio when he decided to call it career in Hollywood and come back to simpler ways of living. Yeah. So run for office. Thats simple. He witnessed the political machinery first hand and came away “funnier” and wiser for the experience.  
       Enjoy this episode as we offer up humor, empathy, apathy, some objectivity and as is the case with politics- no real answers.

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!

A great listen!

Dino, can make anyone interesting (I know from experience). This podcast has a great mixture of comedy, booze and life lessons-quite the concoction!

Jonny O! ,

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!
