In an information age where “stuff” is flying at you in an instant it’s tough sometimes to carve out 45 mins to an hour to listen to a podcast. But here are two in the whiskey world that are worth your time.
WhiskyCast (w/ Mark Gillespie): WhiskyCast has been around for about 5 years. I’ve only been listening to them for about a year now, and I’m so glad I found it. Mark Gillespie is the host and has some of the most informed guests on his show each week. In addition to interviews, Mark spends some time on weekly whiskey news and tastings. You can find WhiskyCast on iTunes and it’s free.
K&L Spirits Journal Podcast: A few days ago I posted some great whiskey resources. One of those was the Spirits Journal blog of K & L Wines ran by David Driscoll and David Girard. David Driscoll produces a podcast and just kick started it up again recently. He’s on his third podcast and already his interviews have included one of the foremost historians of Bourbon (Chuck Cowdery) and arguably the most interesting man in whiskey (John Glaser of Compass Box Whisky Co. ). This podcast is also free and available on iTunes.
Give these podcasts a listen and you’ll be rewarded with in depth whiskey industry information. They’re both great ways to stay informed and learn more about the brown stuff. Thanks for producing them guys and keep up the great work.
Drink you Bourbon!
