About our drink:

Longbranch Bourbon

Wild Turkey Longbranch: 8-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon made in small batches and refined with Texas Mesquite and American Oak charcoals. This unique process results in an extraordinarily balanced and smooth sipping whiskey with subtle hints of smoky sweetness.

Our topic:
Philosophy of Humor:
Humor is such a human thing, yet isn’t discussed by many philosophers.
In this episode we discuss:
– The Superiority Theory
