How critics and educators are working during coronavirus lockdown

A new podcast from an MW power couple

Susie Barrie MW and Peter Richards MW are using their time together at home wisely, and have launched a podcast.

Called Wine Blast, the pair interview creative characters from the wine industry, cook together, test each other’s knowledge and answer all of your wine-related questions.

Wine Blast has already been in the works since last year, but as many tastings and competitions have been pushed back due to the UK’s lockdown measures, it seems there’s no harm in branching into podcasts right now.

However, acknowledging that the industry at large faces one of its greatest challenges in history, Barrie and Richards have added a series of ‘Wine Survival Guides’ to the release of their first two full-length episodes.

These special editions are “swift releases enabling wine people from all around the world to tell their story as events unfold”.

The aim will be to capture small moments of joy wine lovers are taking time to savour during their lockdown conditions, such as learning how to play ‘magnum Jenga’, and the joy of online wine tasting.

The details

Launch: Thursday 2 April
