The Mead House (JD Webb, Jeff Shouse, Ryan Richardson). Hard to search their archive as it’s not labelled by topic, but another interesting chat show to try out.

Cider Chat (Ria Windcaller). Ria is dedicated to promoting high quality and interesting cideries from around the world. There’s a lovely interview with Patrick Meagher of Tasmania’s Simple Cider, for example.
