Dietary Requirements podcast: In which we mix our drinks (wine, mezcal, sake, Milo)

Dietary Requirements is The Spinoff’s monthly podcast in which we eat, drink and talk about it too, with special thanks to Freedom Farms. This month, we’re joined by booze enthusiast Meg Abbott-Walker for a special episode celebrating drinks. 

For the first time in our 11-episode history, we don’t eat a single skerrick of food on air. But fear not, we more than make up for it by indulging in no fewer than five different beverages, as sommelier Meg Abbott-Walker hosts a very scientific tasting of the old (new) Milo versus the new (old) Milo, plus schools us in the joys of sake, mezcal and natural wine.

Plus all your usual favourite bits – including, in a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, Alice praising Simon – and a very special announcement from Sophie.
