/bär/the•o•ry Episode 7: "Looney Tunes"

Episode 7: "Looney Tunes" For episode 7, we go on location and record on the patio at Bird & the Bottle (in Santa Rosa) with our homegirl from Sonoma County Distilling, Kelly Looney. We f'd up the first time we recorded with Kelly (#podcastproblems) so we're fortunate that she came back to record a perhaps even more hilarious and ear opening episode. Learning about her start behind the stick in Boston, to how eating fried chicken helped her find her Knight, to how she got on board with a whiskey distillery here in Sonoma County. All while lending her perspective of being a female in the industry, and what she sees in big cities in addition to the small cities that we reside in here in SC. Grab some hooch and a bucket of chicken and enjoy the toons. #cheers

Episode 6: "Renaissance Woman" Welcome to episode 6, where we are joined by the amazing, supportive, brilliant, beautiful & talented Phaedra Achor, founder of Monarch Bitters. Listen in as she takes us down memory lane, sharing how she got involved in the hospitality industry, to all the various things she's done and still doing, to how she started her bitters (and syrups) company. Of course while we act like children and ask a bunch of questions. But really, if you're in a bitter mood, you should give a listen, for Phaedra is one of our favorite humans. #cheers
