Humans have been perfecting the science of alcohol production for ten thousand years, but modern scientists are only just beginning to distill the complex reactions behind the perfect buzz. In Proof: The Science of Booze, a spirited tour across continents and cultures, Adam Rogers puts our alcoholic history under the microscope, from our ancestors’ accidental discovery of fermented drinks to the cutting-edge laboratory research that proves why—or even if—people actually like the stuff. Tune in to this week's episode of The Speakeasy as Damon chats with Adam about the book and the science of booze! This program was brought to you by Michters.

"I'm a science writer by training and I try to understand the world through that lens." [04:00]

On this episode of A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio is in the studio with Tim Sullivan, sake educator and founder of the site UrbanSake.com. Tune in to hear about how rice processing and milling determines sake quality, why sake is more similar to beer than wine, and why sake is unlikely to give you a hangover. Did the tsunami affect sake quality and production in Japan? Is the sake contaminated by nuclear material? Tim says that sake production is monitored by the Japanese government and is completely safe! Sake doesn't necessarily need to accompany traditional Japanese food; it suits all types of cuisines and can compliment any meal. Learn more about the history of sake, and try some with your next dinner. This program has been brought to you by Hearst Ranch.

"Sake today can be very elegant. There's a lot of nuance. That's a modern phenomenon. That is something that has only been around for the last forty or fifty years. Sake itself has been around for 2,000 years."

"The more you mill down [the rice], the higher the quality. All the rice we eat is brown; if you're eating white rice, it has been milled."

--Tim Sullivan on A Taste of the Past

This week on A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio is talking shrubs, flips, and rattle-skulls - aka colonial drinks! Welcoming food writer and author of Forgotten Drinks of Colonial New England Corin Hirsch via phone to brief Linda on this interesting topic, they start off the show talking about how prevalent alcoholic beverages were in the times of our founding-fathers. As it turns out, cider was a very common drink for all to enjoy - even children! Having to do with poor water quality at the time, alcoholic drinks were considered safer to drink than most other drinks at the time. After the break, Linda is joined in the studio by Michael Dietsch, author of the book Shrubs: An Old Fashioned Drink for Modern Times. Continuing the colonial chat, Michael shares historical tidbits about shrub: the name of different, but related, acidulated beverages. He goes on to elaborate about each type of shrub and how the beverage basically disappeared from the market, though is seeing a comeback in recent years. Tune in to hear all about the drinks that Colonial Americans loved! This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Alcohol consumption, as robust as it was before the war began, it just reached its peak in the decades after the war." [10:05]

--Corin Hirsch on A Taste of the Past

"Shrub was one of the first things that the British navy used to fight scurvy." [29:03]
