7: "Gallo is The Family of American Wine" & "The History of Baseball and Beer"
May 22 2020
In this episode, Philip gives a history of the Gallo family, one of the oldest and most powerful families in American wine, including tales of the corporate wine juggernaut bearing the family name. Along the way we talk about Coca-Cola, Apple, PayPal, Cesar Chavez, and the Modesto Nuts. & Liam brings us the history of Major League Baseball and beer, from the founding of the teetotaling early days up through the repeal of prohibition. We meet Saloon owners who bought baseball teams, and US Presidents chanted out of stadiums. ------------ Thought & A Chaser is a project of Adult Juice Box.
