Why Mommy Drinks
A humour-filled podcast for parents sees comedians and moms Betsy Stover and Amanda Allan invite a celeb guest on their show every week. This is followed by a chat with them on parenting that specifically drove them towards alcohol. Yep, that’s right. The best part of the podcast is that it falls in the no-guilt and no-preach zone where the guests can be tragically honest and also laugh their hearts out at their parenting experiences! Check it out here.
Drink And Learn
The name itself is self-descriptive we believe. Expert bartender Abigail Gullo and Elizabeth talk about the history of alcohol, its evolution, various social-cultural aspects related to different drinks and of course, a bit of drinking advice. So far they covered love potions, carnival drinking, how St. Patrick’s Day and Irish whiskey are inter-related and medical drinking. Hear them out here!
