GotMead Live is the culmination of years of you guys telling me we needed a new radio show, and the insistance of JD, then a very enthusiastic new meadmaker. At GotMead Live, just like on the website here, we’re all about mead. Making mead, finding mead, and drinking mead. The show will be broadcast live, so you can call in and be a part of the show. We’ll also be interviewing people in the mead industry, meadery owners, movers and shakers, and equipment and supplies folks, including beekeepers and honey providers.

Listen in! (NOTE: This player will be LIVE when we are on, and will show the most recent episode in between shows)

Your hosts:

  • Vicky Rowe – Founder and owner of Gotmead.com. I’ve been making mead since 1996, and have been hanging out with the folks in the industry almost as long. I make my home in North Carolina
  • A.J. Ermenc – long time Gotmead forum member (ChevetteGirl), experienced meadmaker, and our North of the Border contingent from Ottawa, Canada.

From time to time, when he can get away from work, we will have on with us Petar Bakulic (Oskaar on the forums). He is an experienced meadmaker and winemaker of over 30 years. He’ll talk mead, and answer questions from meadmakers. NEW!!! Our new series, AJ’s Making Good Mead: Back to Basics, starts on April 5, 2016. AJ will be taking you back to your meadmaking roots, and building good mead making techniques and tools from the ground up, to help create solid, repeatable mead making habits that will give you great mead all the time. Join us to talk mead!! We will be joined by other GotMeaders such as Mannye, Squatchy and other mead makers who have great info to bring in, so if you want to come play, let us know!
