Phenomenal Show packed with Info and Entertainment
I recently started learning about cider and went looking for podcasts that I could listen to. Thankfully I found this one. Her interviews are chock full of info and are easy enough for a new person to understand.
Once I listened to the first episode I was hooked and listened to the next 11 back to back. I even plan on listening to them again just so I can take notes this time. The fact that she interviews such a range of cidermakers is awesome to me. I eagerly wait for each episode which brings me to the only problem with the show... she only puts one out a week! Who knew 7 days could be so long to wait?

Truly Informative and Interesting!
I just got started making cider and have found the information is amazing! Many podcasts tell you they have information, this show really delivers the nuts and bolts of how it is done as well as a great high level view of the industry trends. I have learned so much and truly enjoyed listening to shows several times to get the last bit of juice from this apple!

Ria Is Simply The Best
I first discovered Cider Chat in 2016 when I was looking into how cider is created commercially. Ria's approach to the process is nothing sort of extraordinary. She creates access with some of the world's most interesting people actually doing the work. Anyone interested in the beverage industry should devour every one of these podcasts! Her love of the subject matter and devotion to creating this library of information is amazing.
Ria: THANK YOU.
