In the first of our three-part series of Sex Talks, we meet Kara Haug, nationally recognized sex educator and an expert on spirituality's relation to sexuality. Kara's perspective on removing the shame and sin from sex has made her unique in her field and among her peers. Though our bottle of Viano Chardonnay is truly mediocre, the conversation is anything but, swerving from the necessity of masturbation to the idea that God wants you to have an orgasm. We break our own rule about never discussing religion on the pod because...sex. Who knew?

Just when we planned on talking about the challenges of taking kids on vacation, Christine commandeers the podcast and takes a left-hand turn, putting JT in the hot seat about his attempted-rock-star past. Join us as JT spills the goods about the band's early days in LA, signing with Atlantic Records, life on the road, and the ultimate lesson about trying to make the big time. And yes, as un-rock as it may sound, Glutenberg is a gluten-free beer we picked up at Trader Joes. Same amount of alcohol, though, so the rock is still intact.

What do you do to relieve the stress? Do you set aside time to take care of yourself? We do, as the copious amounts of wine will testify. But pounding a bottle of your favorite bubbly, like this insanely value-priced Champagne Ernest Rapaneau, does not constitute an entire self care regimen, unless you consider a hangover to be "self care." In this episode, Christine & JT - two professional-grade hedonists - give you some tips on how to put yourself first from time to time. Because everyone wants you to stop being a dick. Seriously.

Summertime and the livin' is, well, maybe not as easy as we hoped. With the kids out of school and daylight stretching past 9pm, parenting can require more alcohol than previously expected. Fortunately, we've got all the solutions for that. Or maybe not. Maybe we just bitch about it. For Episode 31, we convene at Two Rivers Cider Company in Sacramento to chat about all things summer and pound yummy hard ciders. We even did a professional video shoot of the podcast, which we'll air on our YouTube Channel later this week!

No doubt about it, grown-ups need to get crazy, too. Just because you've got a few kids and a dozen other responsibilities doesn't mean you're already dead. In fact, the more steam you've got, the more you need to blow it off. In this episode, Christine personifies this truth with the story of her recent shenanigans at Auction Napa Valley with Joel Aiken, creator of the delicious 2013 Sonoma Mountain Sonoma County Pinot Noir we're drinking. Let's just say it involves a late night, too much wine, garden decorations, compromising photos and the authorities...
