1/4: Investing in Booze

Buying whisky: barrels of fun.

In this week's episode, Olly meets Leo Scott-Francis, who offers private investors the opportunity to buy first-fill sherry casks.

Leo gives Olly a crash-course in the market, and a taste of his own-brand of whisky, currently maturing underground in Scotland.

But will Olly sign up us a client? And will he ever learn to talk like an afficianado?


Meanwhile, in The Zeitgeist, Ollie Peart considers the drugs-on-demand business in which Snoop has invested his doggy dosh; spends longer than is healthy looking at GIFs of Shia LaBeouf; and reveals that, as a child, he was a contender to be a CHOCOLATE SUPERSTAR.

And, in our weekly trip down The Foxhole, resident love guru Alix Fox advises a couple who are struggling to keep the fizz in their long-distance relationship. It's nothing that a lubricated sleeve and a Bluetooth connection can't fix, apparently.

If you've got a question for Alix, submit it here. And if you're enjoying the show, why not subscribe, tell your friends on Twitter, or even buy us a beer. Ta!

Next week: how to be a Dad-to-be. See You Next Tuesday!
