    Thanks Doug. I can not wait to meet Leo. I am a HUGE fan. It is rumored that he likes wine. Maybe we can pop some bottles together?

    Not just my favorite podcast, my ONLY podcast. Absolutely love the shows and am addicted. Even appreciate the comic relief in some of them (Vinotemp lady referring to “Del Dodo” winery still makes me laugh). Congratz again!
