AJ Rantz the creator of Cocktail Cards.  The cards will take you from complete beginner to cocktail expert.

Starting  out pouring beers at the Gorge Amphitheater,  AJ shares some funny about Ozzie Osborn and other concerts during his years at the Gorge. This led him to a decade of being a bartender in the greater Seattle area.

Prior to COVID AJ left his job bartending due to the hours that were not working out with his personal life. He shares his journey as a fledgling business owner. The journey  has been interesting and full of challenges.  His perseverance has ultimately lead him to crowdsource Cocktail Cards.

We hear the story of how he was able to design the product, develop the recipes, and create the marketing.  The cards have QR codes on them that you can use to see a video of how to prepare the drink!

AJ shares the history of my favorite cocktail The Rusty Nail.  You have to listen to the episode to hear this story.

If you like hearing stories about cocktails and if you like to hear about business this will be a must listen.  Grab your favorite cocktail and enjoy the episode.

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
