We Like Drinking Podcast

The truth is, most of us don't just drink one type of drink, we enjoy all kinds of adult beverages. The majority of the podcast and blogging world, however, sees the world through their own myopic drinking glasses. It's either all beer, all wine, or all spirits, in other words, they're boringly singular. We Like Drinking recognizes that the drink you crave depends on the situation, environment, mood and a host of other things. This podcast works hard to have fun first and maybe teach you something about your favorite drinks.

Panel Introductions And What We’re Drinking

  • Tonight we’re joined by our usual panel members, first we have our wine blogger, Jeff Solomon, our commercial brewer, John Ruyak, and finally, I’m your host, Jeff Eckles.
  • Our guest tonight is a blogger, journalist, TED talks alumni, and best selling author. His books, “The Etymologicon”, “The Horologican”, and “The Elements of Eloquence” display his unique insight and incredible research skills in dissecting and explaining the origins and usage of words throughout the English language. His latest book “A Short History Of Drunkeness” offers us exactly what the title says. Taking a peek into how alcohol has been used, and abused, at different points throughout our human history provides a cringeworthy and hilarious stagger back in time. Please help us welcome, Mark Forsyth.
