We’re all spending more time indoors this season. Whether you’re looking to fill the silence in your home while cooking, or searching for something to play while you make a cross-country drive to visit friends and family, we think the best solution are podcasts. If you, like us, didn’t pay attention in history class, or are looking for some interesting facts to share the next time you’re caught in a room with strangers (when will that be, by the way?!) – we’ve got you covered. Here are some whiskey history podcast recommendations our fans are sure to enjoy.
