HAD 128: Drinking Festivals

Today’s episode is a little bit odd, because it’s hard to nail down exactly what it is to make a drinking festival. Does it lessen the experience if the reason for it is to sell you something? Okay, everything in a capitalist society is designed in some way to sell you something, but does the event have no soul if there is no history? So we’re going to talk about that, plus mention some festivals from around the world, so get ready to party while we Have a Drink.
