Wine Worth a Listen

LISTEN TO THIS > SLATE MONEY: Ep. 60, The Wine Edition, JUL 4 ⋅ 58:10

During the intro for this "very special edition" of Slate's Money podcast, I was contemplating skipping it because it was an entire hour dedicated to wine and the economics of it. For this beer guy, it sounded like a waste of time, but the economics side of the conversation turned out to be quite fascinating. While blind taste test prove again and again that there is no taste difference between expensive and cheap wine, if you know the story behind the wine, buying more expensive wine can make you happier. I'm planning on doing some further testing to see if the same is true with beer.
