The great folks at Nextbook did a podcast about... my podcast! I think it came out really great. You can either check it out here or wait for my next podcast - I promise it will be soon! - and hear it then.

When I listened to it for the first time I thought, Damn, this guy knows a lot about seltzer! Is that really me? How did I learn so much about something SO esoteric in one and a half years?

If you are visiting Give Me Seltzer for the first time, welcome! Check out the previous podcasts, read some blog entries, and be sure to enter your email address below so you can be notified about the project.
