Who are the drinking historians?

We’re Matthew Gabriele and Varsha Venkatasubramanian. We started the show in 2020. It “died” in 2021. Now it’s back beginning January 2023.

What do I get by signing up?

More email. But only every once in a while. You’ll hear about upcoming episodes of DWH, and be able to view old episodes.

Do I have to pay?
