And....we're BACK, talking about some of my favorite subjects: bourbon, very fancy thousand dollar mint juleps, and the Kentucky Derby! This week's guests are Chris Morris and Elizabeth McCall, the Master Distiller and Assistant Master Distiller, respectively of Woodford Reserve, the official bourbon and Presenting Sponsor of the Kentucky Derby. On the eve of “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” I invite you to take a moment, pour out a little Woodford, and pre-game with us.
