Episode 36: Get Your Hands Dirty!
Episode 36 comin’ at ya, and this time, we’re getting dirrrrty….
In the vineyards that is.
Whitney and I give you everything you need to be part owner of a French winery. Or if you want to do it for free, we’ve got lots of tips on how to help out with wineries’ harvests.
Now doesn't this look like more fun than a beach vacation?! Winemaker Fredi Torres's mule at Sao del Coster in Spain
But if you don’t want to leave the comfort of your own home, we’ll tell how to grow vines in your backyard. Or at least point you in the direction of people who DO know how to do this.
Plus we tell you which country boasts the biggest boozers (the answer may surprise you).
And we put Alexandre Bain in the Crush Quickfire hot seat:
No not that Alexander Bain, Scottish inventor and engineer from the 1800s who invented the electric clock and installed railway telegraph lines between Edinburgh and Glasgow!
Or that Alexander Bain, also Scottish, also lived around the same time period and was a philosopher who founded the ‘first ever journal of psychology and analytical philosophy, and was the leading figure in establishing and applying applying the scientific method to psychology’.
But THIS Alexandre Bain, French natural winemaker from Poully Fume. Bet he wishes he had facial hair like the other dudes though.
Finally, we talk an inordinate amount about nasal douches (which post-recording you’ll all be relieved to know I have bought myself). Cuz that’s how we roll here on the Crush.
