The Podcast that seeks to understand something about anything… with the help from experts, and rather a lot of gin.

In this ‘Table Manners’ meets ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’ podcast, our ever-curious Step-mother, Step-daughter hosting team begin each episode with a glass of gin in hand, before launching into the topic of the week.

Once the gin has been thoroughly sampled, and reviewed, they discuss what they already know about the week’s topic. It could be anything, from science to art, from political to cultural. Most importantly, they often don’t know a lot.

Luckily, there is a weekly expert who shares their knowledge… and the gin.

The guest may be plagued with ‘Okay, but why?’s, and ‘So, how?’s, but they get to drink through it! And, if this expert can tell our hosts that everything they thought they knew is wrong, even better. There’s no confrontation, just a genuine wish to learn and understand, and at the end of the show, the hosts spend a little time mulling over what they’ve learnt, and wondering how they can slip it into conversations to look smart.

New episodes released Friday 5pm

Sarah Cruise  has been teaching communication skills for public engagement since 2006. During this time, she has met a host of fascinating people with really interesting topics. Until now, she hasn’t been able to spend as much time as she wanted really understanding these subjects, as she’s been too busy passing on her own knowledge. This podcast is an opportunity for her to sit back and enjoy listening (and understanding) for a change.

Áine Cruise is Sarah’s step-daughter, currently studying for a Masters in Screenwriting at the University of the West of England. She has no background in public engagement, just student life and retail! However, has plenty of experience in discussing subjects with Sarah over many gins. She also has a way with words, and will be putting those to good use in summarising our chats to share on social media.

We really don’t know very much, but we really like gin.

And we know there are a lot of people out there who do know an awful lot, and might like gin too.

So, we thought… 

why not combine learning a little from those that know a lot, and drink a little (okay a lot) of gin along the way?

If you are an expert with a topic to share

And a healthy interest in gin

Then get in touch!
