#20 Albert Carillo aka Albert the Barber

For this episode of the WINE JETS podcast I interviewed a dope barber, the talented Albert Carillo. Albert runs The Barber Lounge barbershop in Fife, WA. I've been watching his shop grow in popularity over the last couple years and the success has been impressive. I was stoked that Albert made the time in his busy schedule to sit down, hang with me and drink some Vega Medien bubbly rose wine at 10am. Albert also gave me a fresh fade and shave with some Mane Tame products which was much...

#17 Jack Murrey - Hunting, Photography, Film & Wine

On this episode of Wine Jets I was fortunate enough to get my brother Jack to join me on the show! We introduced some new segments called "SHEESH!" and "Ation" (which were interesting). We also discussed some of Jack's passions including hunting, film and photography. It was great to teach the young buck a thing or two about wine and learn something from him about what he's got going on. Ultimately the real treat was to be able to kick it and laugh with Jack! I really enjoyed recording...

#4 Ajay Iselin

Ajay was a really fun guest to have on the show. He's super quick witted and always makes me laugh. It was refreshing to interview someone outside of the wine industry for a change. We both tasted some (a lot) of Riesling while we recorded the episode so it got a bit more opinionated on my end, but nonetheless I enjoyed myself.
