The Punch Down Episode Two With Guest Randall Grahm Is Next Week (Wed, Jan 23, 1PM EST)!

Vinted on January 16, 2013 binned in The Punch Down

I’m excited to share with you the details for Episode Two of The Punch Down!

[ For those who need a quick catch up on TPD: for the last few months, I’ve been working with London-based wine educator and author Tara O’Leary on a video wine show that finally went Live in December 2012; to get a feel for the vibe, check out Episode One with guest Eric Asimov. ]

Tara, Shelby and I have been reviewing the feedback from Episode One, and tweaking our format a bit, and we think you’ll like what we’re up to in this next episode.

Our guest this time will be the irrepressible Randall Grahm, iconoclastic Hall of Fame vintner and the driving force behind Bonny Doon wines. California’s original Rhone Ranger and unabashed Pinot-phile will join Tara and I (and the 1WD intern, the Young Unpaid Shelby) on the hot seat to talk about what’s best – and worst – about the wine business in 2013. Those who know Randall and/or have seen him speak know that you’re in for amazing insights, cogent and unabashed commentary, and probably a bad pun (or twenty). You are NOT going to want to miss this one!

And so we invite you to join us for Episode Two, LIVE on January 23rd (that’s one week from today, hoss!) at 1PM ET (10AM PT, 6PM GMT). We encourage you to hit us up with questions for Randall on twitter during the event, using the hastag #thepunchdown as well as through email (thepunchdown @, which you can send anytime between now and the event for a chance to get your question aired live with Randall.

You’ll also get a full viewable recap posted here on 1WD shortly after the event, and can also catch up on YouTube or via iTunes. So chime in, let us know you’re coming, and tell a few wine-loving friends about it if you’re so inclined.

Cheers – and hope to see you there!

    I loved your first episode! I've got your podcast lined up on my podcast app. Can't wait! I only wish you guys did a bi-weekly episode instead of once a month!

    Keep up the great work Joe!

      Thanks! Hopefully we'll work up to a higher frequency, we're still tweaking it for the purposes of maximum awesomeness :-)
