In Travel Channel’s “Booze Traveler,” Jack Maxwell ventures the globe to not only get a taste of a country’s alcohol, but to quench his curiosity about what people drink, why they drink it and the stories they tell when they do.
At each stop, he connects with locals, immerses himself in regional activities, learns about the country’s unique relationship with liquor and sometimes even participates in the alcohol-making process.
Through all of his travels, Jack initially expected to encounter a lot of differences (e.g. culture, ethnicity, religion). In fact, he discovered that the people he encountered had so much more in common than the differences he anticipated. For example, a sense of humor and laughter permeated his conversations, even if he and the populations he was visiting didn't speak the same language.
Listen as Jack joins Dr. Bond to share stories from his experiences, the "worst drink" he drank, and why he started his podcast, "I Don't Drink Alone."
