Great Pod!

As a wine nerd (not a professional) I find this not only to be the most educational podcast, but perhaps the best free content available. Geoff, Chris, Kelli, and Bryce cover a wide array of subjects with great detail. Even better, they bring the most complex subjects to a level that any interested listener can follow and learn.
