Episode 20 features Stacy Brsiscoe who didn't set out to be a wine journalist when she got out of college with a degree in American Literature. As often happens, wine found her! She tells Mike about slowly building a wine writing career on multiple platforms; the first time she really "got it" when drinking wine - there were lots of people around; about how she takes the sometimes "dry" business side of the wine world and makes it interesting (it's all about finding the people!); and what to avoid when taking a wine-drinking selfie. The two also sip and chat about a couple of deliciuos wines, discuss Stacy's former life as a personal trainer and her early years studying with the Jesuits! How can you not want to listen?
