#1 Steve's Not Fun Anymore
Zane Lamprey (Three Sheets, Drinking Made Easy, Have Chug) and Steve McKenna (those same shows, but in a lesser role) are college buddies who have been around the world together.

So, there are about 29 years of questionable decisions, which make for the best stories. Steve still needs to get used to keeping an eye on the focus-tracking feature of his new camera, and probably needs to back up a foot, but most of the kinks are worked out in the evolution of Zane's podcast. In this inaugural episode, they talk about what made Steve go sober, why Zane isn't sure that drinking and stand-up comedy work, and leave you with the cliff hanger on that one time (of many) that Steve is lucky to have survived!  New episodes every week!

Many of our guests like to bring in bottles when they come on the show, however CEO & Founder of Free Flow Wines, Jordan Kivelstadt, decided that he wanted to bring in an entire keg of wine instead. Yep, that's right, a keg of wine. He, along with Kazia Schulhof of Trefethen Family Vineyards, try to help Zane finish off 26 bottles worth of Trefethan's 2012 Dry Rieslings.  While diving into the keg of wine we also hear how wine on tap may very well be the next big thing at your local bar or restaurant.
