High quality audio and great interviews. Overall a very professional podcast.
I tried and I tried to listen because she actually does have some interesting guests on this show, but the host has an arrogant, grating personality that I just can't take.
Arrogant... With no reason to be
I agree with one of the other reviews about really trying to tough it out and listen. The host is extremely knowledgeable but the delivery is way too self serving. I just got finished listening to a podcast about tasting etiquette and while her comments are accurate her delivery sounds a bit selfish and arrogant. Sorry for the scathing review but you need to decant and loosen up on some of the tannic bite. Don't forget that you're for pairing(with knowledge), not preaching.
