WINE is the subject of Episode 12 of Topics on Fire today, 1/18, at 4:30 PM EST. We’ll be discussing it from a wine maker, wine seller and wine drinker’s point of view. We’ll cover how wineries and distributors can market it online and using social media; how wine lovers can find wine events, wines and fellow winer lovers online; promoting wine events online; buying wine online and more.
Panelists include Emilio Saez Van Eerd of La Casa De Las Vides winery in spain (hence the one-time time change interfering with your football watching – trust me, it is so worth it!), Dale Cruse of Drinks Are on Me wine blog, Craig Drollett of Bin Ends Wine sales and tasting and Michael Cochran of Cult Vines boutique direct to consumer winery. I’m excited to talk wine with all of you, so put those football games on DVR or TiVo and spend an hour with us, won’t you?
UPDATE: Here is the embedded audio from the podcast. I’ll have the links from the chat room up as well shortly, so check back!
If you have ever wondered what to wear to those social media events when dress code is not specified, how to dress for any occasion, how to look and feel successful, or just how to navigate the choppy waters of being the best you possible, then tonight’s podcast is for you.
Usually we discuss heavier issues relating to social media and technology on Topics on Fire. Issues like gender, race, cross generational work flow, education and more. But since 2008 was a rough year for many and we are all looking for a better 2009, I thought what better way to start us off than to take a bit of a departure from the usual themes and bring some of the best dressed men in (and formerly in) Boston to give you some advice on making some real, concrete changes and improvements for the coming year?
Each of the men joining me on our panel tonight is a shining sartorial example of how to look your best, as well as how to be the best you possible. They also appreciate the finer things, like wine, scotch and cigars, and want to share that knowledge with you. In keeping with the podcast’s overall theme, we’ll manage to get some tips relating to social media in there, I’m sure, but most of this episode will be about sharing their knowledge and helping you.
The panelists include Scott Monty of Ford Motor Co., Thomas Edwards of Project Infinity, Jamie Scheu of Hill Holliday and Dmitri Gunn, man of mystery. I will be moderating, and there will be a lively chat room going on as well.
