On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Alcohol is closely intertwined with every chapter of the American story — from the founding of the country to Prohibition to today’s Super Bowl culture. Kojo explores alcohol’s contributions to our national culture (both good & bad), and how our drinking habits have evolved with our society over time.
