Episode 104: Gorgeous Georgia

7/6/2018
More
This podcast was discovered in an amber egg, from the DNA of a hipster mosquito that was trapped there for years...like...since 2011. I used science to get the cool ass audio shit out and download it iTunes. I know you guys want to hunt for your podcasts...not be fed. So hunt out all of the references in this one if you're hungry for some Jurassic knowledge on this ancient wine growing region of Georgia. The results will be eighty-seven percent more entertaining than both of the last two...

Welcome to our first Rosé podcast. NOT! If you even read these descriptions you'll know that this entire episode is an elaborate trap to get you to learn about an entirely different subject. And what would that be? Well, I don't want to ruin it, but...let's just say that the Band is All here. The BAND is ALL here. Eh? Ehhhhh? Welcome to a W4SH Shyamalan twist. Hope you're able to pick up all the pieces of your brain from the floor after it was blown to pieces. ShaKlamaLamaBlamo as the...

A Brief Word on Tannins

5/1/2018
More
This is hardly a full length episode. Rather, this is merely an introspection. A research tangent. A dangling participle. Some words mean many things. Some words deserve a little more attention than others. And here we find 'Tannin' on the examination table. Jolly Good.

Muscat is a grape that Jason talks about on this podcast. You are a person that downloads and listens to his tutelage.

9/13/2017
More
The Beqaa Valley, also known as the Bekaa Valley and, occasionally, The Phoenician Mother Lovin' Pimp Zone, just so happens to be the best spot for wine in all of the Middle East. As long as you don't mind military struggles, religious infighting, and the occasional bunker buster or tank near your wine tasting room, then you should be ready to go. Listen to this podcast with some mezze and it'll be less falawful. Or just listen to it regardless. But. . .really listen. Not everyone makes...

Episode 96: Macabeo is Bae

8/30/2017
More
Macabeo, or Viura if ya nasty, is a handy little white grape from the North of Spain and the South of France. Mostly. One-third of the 'Cava Girls Trio' (a Motown band made up of three wine grapes, they can't sing but man, what a concept, eh?!), this grape felt like it deserved its own stand-alone episode (we'll see). On this new dose of audio adrenaline (the experience you get from listening to W4SH, not the Christian band), Jason takes you into a dreamscape you didn't even know your...
