Beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and Coca-Cola!

In this episode I'm joined by Tom Standage for a dive into the history of the world through the lens of what (and why) people were drinking at the time.

You may never look at your favorite drink the same way again!

Tune in to learn…

-What the first drink was (besides water),

-How beer was accidentally invented,

-Why the Ancient Greeks and Romans watered down their wine,

-How the London Stock Exchange started as a tea shop,

-About the Soviet military leader who drank Coke disguised as vodka,

-& so much more!
