Welcome to this week’s All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 1: The O Word. In this episode we discuss why Outlander fans should run, not walk, to read the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness.
Housekeeping details: We’ve read the whole All Souls Trilogy and will try to stay on topic if we say a particular show is going to only cover A Discovery of Witches, but we may forget or digress or whatever so consider yourself warned if you’ve only read one of the books. Also this podcast is labeled explicit because we sometimes swear and we’re going to talk about sex because, well, there’s sex in the books. So that’s why we gave it the explicit rating. You’ve now been officially warned.
Show notes: Each episode we’ll be bringing you a note about red wine because wine is a main form of sustenance for vampires when they’re not drinking, you know. blood. Oh, and we like wine…a lot. This episode’s wine is Tempranillo. One of the oldest grapes in the world, it dates back to about 1000 BC and is originally from Spain. It’s not as big as some of the varieties that we’re used to here in the US, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but it has excellent notes of tobacco and sage and it pairs well with lighter protein light pork or lamb. We’re not quite sure how well it pairs with red highland stag but we’ll do some research and get back with you. Our weekly wine moments come to us compliments of our resident sommelier, Bayard, who knows what he’s talking about because he’s a founding partner at Crafted Brands.
