    We are all about destroying wine snobbery and we know boxed wine is popular in many households...including our own. It's convenient to have a box of "house red" for a glass when you don't want to open an entire bottle, or for when unexpected company drops by. We wanted to figure out what the best boxed wine is, so in this episode, we tried 5 different boxed wines to give you our answer!

    Here's a list of the wines...

    Welcome to summer - it's Memorial Day weekend, and we're excited to get all things 'Sconsin going - outside living, grilling, beer, etc. etc. etc. Bridget and Nick did a "How 'sconsin are you" quiz (you may be surprised by the result) and we'd like you to take the quiz too. We're offering prizes for perfect scores. It'll be a good prize, we promise.

    You can take our "How 'Sconsin Are You?&...

    We love rosé wine - it's pink, refreshing, and a harbinger of spring and summer fun! There are SO MANY different bottles of rosé available on store shelves and on restaurant wine lists now, and they all seem to blend together. They are made from different grapes, come from different places, and have different price points, but the question is, do they all taste the same?

    On this month's episode, we tried 5 different rosé win...

    Our long time listeners know that Nick is obsessed with fun flavors of Kit Kats and spent much of the early pandemic trying to track down mint Kit Kats. Which are delicious. As part of our research into flavored Kit Kats, we discovered that there are literally hundreds of Kit Kat flavors in Japan. We decided we need to taste these flavors and share our experience with all of you.

    Luckily for our wallets, we didn't have to fly to...

    Guys, we recorded a day early this week and missed some really important news - the passing of Prince Philip. It would be weird if we didn't discuss this on the pod (we know you guys want to know what we think about it), so we got together and recorded this emergency bonus episode. It's 16 minutes long and we totally get if you want to skip this one but we enjoyed recording it. We hope you enjoy listening

    The most important thing you need to know from this episode is that after a lengthy and frustrating "repair process," Bridget finally has her laptop back. You can rest assured she's properly prepped for this episode now that she has her trusty Macbook by her side instead of a PC or a tablet!

    We released a lot of bonus content this week, we hope you enjoyed our wine episode and our emergency Prince Phillip discussion. We ...
