Episode 17: Our Hand Gestures Are Extraordinary

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, we talk about NAKED PEOPLE! Well, we talk about naked people in the movies. Because nudity is so interesting in an audio format.

Our wine pairing for this week is Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages, which was partly selected because it’s fun to pronounce “boujolais”. Tasty AND fun!
