I logged in to this blog a couple minutes ago to post a wine review and noticed a new incoming link. I checked it out and found a nice post from another blogger about my podcast but what struck me was that through this show he found his favorite winery, Humanitas. It occurred to me that this chain of events could not have taken place in many other ways than using the internet.
This chance occurrence started as an email from a Inertia Beverage business development guy who asked if I would be interested interviewing Humanitas founder Judd Wallenbrock and tasting one of his wines. At the time Winecast was not an interview show (in fact Judd was my first guest) but I had been thinking about occasionally adding this element. Had this offer come in just a few weeks earlier, I would have not accepted it and not done a show featuring the Humanitas story. But I did do the show and sometime later, this blogger listened and was sufficiently interested in trying the wines. Now he’s a fan and as a side benefit is helping kids in his local community. Very cool; I just love this.
