Ep 1: Candy is Dandy but Liquor is Quicker

Kanpai! Sláinte! Cheers!

It's our inaugural episode! So why not douse yourself in eccentric facts about liquor, spirits, and libations? Seagull wine, beer laws, cocktail origins, "alternative" imbibation methods, and more. We hope you enjoy our first show!

This is pretty cool! I didn't know a mnemonic for the 10 provinces, so that could come in handy. Great work on the first episode!

I don't wanna nitpick, but the little boner dude in Blade Runner isn't origami, it's made from a match.

Love the podcast. I run a weekly pub trivia in Gainesville, FL. Guess I'm doing a booze category next week.

Great first show! Bunch of clever people with a good sense of humour doing a trivia/quiz show. Fantastic.

If I were on any social media whatsits, I'd share your show with everyone. Instead, I'll just inform my real life pubquiz friends.

Looking forward to enjoying your number two. What?

Colin: Black FUCKING Sabbath. Dammit.

Great show, I see there's another episode for me to listen to. Exxcelent.

Flying Waffle!
An important nitpick, but it was a paper matchstick. Therefore, the nitpick should really be that it was Kirigami. :D
Nitpick Returned!
I love this podcast so much.

Coming from a true cold blooded Canadian, we did not have to learn the American states nor any American geography of any kind. That was the early 90's and I'm quite sure that it's not changed.
She was lying.

Funny story though. Could have helped me in grade 5.

Cheers.
