Episode 14 with Michael J McCoy

It’s my birthday this week and for my birthday, I am releasing this podcast featuring Michael J McCoy, the great wine shop host and wine book connoisseur. Michael compiles a guide, called the “Quick Reference Guide to Wine Knowledge Resources”. If you have taken a wine course at Okanagan College, you may have received a previous version of this guide. The current edition is 4 pages and it is filled with a list of wine books, listed in categories and loaded with resources for wine newbies, Sipsters, and the most oenologically learned. No matter how complex the wine or the resource, Michael has a way of communicating it to you in a way that you will understand.

If you would like a copy of this guide, please email me at sipsterswinepodcast@gmail.com and I will send you the PDF.

(See what I did there?)

Episode 7 – Memories

Why is podcasting booming now? What is the appeal? There must be some reason by podcasts are becoming more popular. How does this relate to wine?
