About this Episode
It's hard to get together during coronavirus, so this week Tony Katz took some great interviews he recently conducted and brought them to the Eat! Drink! Smoke! podcast
Tony has started a new web series called Virtual Bourbon. (You should subscribe to his You Tube channel!) Two of his interviews deal with people who have had to deal with coronavirus in different ways.
First, John Rich of the country duo Big and Rich. In addition to being a musician, John is an entrepreneur. He owns a whiskey label called Redneck Riviera, and he has a restaurant in Nashville of the same name. In all of his businesses, he's been forced to figure out how to keep emplopyees afloat. How does he do it, what toll does it take on him? We discuss
Then, Rabbi Ben Sendrow talks about God, faith and coronavirus. When a pandemic like this hits, with thousands of lives lost, people often question God. So Tony asked him about what he gets asked, and how do you answer the old question, Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen To Good People?
John drinks Redneck Riviera, obviously. Rabbi Sendrow drinks Aberfeldy scotch.
