This week on The Morning After, hosts Sari Kamin and Jessie Kiefer kick off the show with some entertaining Food News including McDonald's interpretation of vegetables, the Cake Boss being arrested, and the grand opening of NYC's first cat cafe. Officially welcoming guest Talia Baiocchi, Editor in Chief of PUNCH Magazine and host of Heritage Radio Network's PUNCH Radio, the group discusses her journey into the world of beverage journalism, the idea behind PUNCH, and the new city guide section coming to PUNCH. Sari asks Talia how PUNCH deals with drink trends and what she has observed from city to city across the country, for instance, with the craft cocktail movement. Talia also recently released the book, "Sherry: A Modern Guide to the Wine World's Best-Kept Secret, with Cocktails and Recipes," and shares some facts and highlights with listeners before taking on The Morning After Quiz! This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.

"We wanted to create something that felt like it answered the why does this matter but not getting so wrapped up in all the details that we forgot about the big picture." [18:23]
