Simpler Wines combines the convenience of a can with a delightfully, Italian vino frizzante (sparkling wine). In Simpler Wines White, notes of juicy honeydew and fresh cut herbs provide sweet sippability, complementing such savory pairings as fresh bread & olives or Parmigiano Reggiano. The elegant, mineral notes and red fruit flavors of Simpler Wines Rosé are a natural fit for fresh pasta, seafood or sweets.

This wine isn't anything I would normally drink but the hoopla about it in Trader Joe's made me seek it out and give it a taste.  I actually drunk it and tried my best to pull out what I thought would be some kind of flavor.  Not quality, not aromas or real taste.  But a fair shot with this tasting.

This episode Alicia and I discuss the new Guy Ritchie flick, King Arthur - Legend of the sword.  Critics and audiences did not favor this movie not one bit.  But Alicia and I like Guy Ritchie and wanted to give the movie a chance (not often do we do that)

This podcast Sean and I talk about the most disappointing releases that came out this year that we had higher expectations for.  Some say it was a waste of thought, other say we are blasphemous.  We give our opinions on the releases and perhaps some we did not spend the energy to even give enough air time on.

For an out of the ordinary review, We decided on a new TV series on Starz to review.  The critically acclaimed novel "American Gods" created by Neil Gaiman comes to TV.  I mentioned this series to Alicia early last year because we both are big fans of Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies).  And this show has all the creative flair of the two of them in such different ways.  Check it out, it is partially complex but both horror and entertaining at the same time.   Here's the series summary.  Enjoy!!

On todays Women tech talk, Alicia and I talk about the new features of Google assistant and Google home that she got to experience while she was at Google I/O.  This was a good effort Google showed better thanthe previous year and a good challenge to the other two major players in the assistant realm (Alexa, Siri) as well as the home automation market.  We not only have a google home now but we both downloaded the the google assistant on our Iphones as well.

This is the first time in a long time I can become a tech lover and not a follower of just Apple products.  Should be a very enlightening conversation from Apple fans.

We get the team together to talk draft and how once again the brilliant Seyi Omanira predicted the top 5-6 picks of the draft as we sat in awe.  Trades were the most animated discussion when we discussed the state of the NBA with the Super Team GS Warriors destined to win the next 3 championships.  

We end with the televised Award show that brought nothing to the conversation other than how late it was to present the seasons top players, coaches and miscellaneous fill in award
