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 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.
  • Hamish Lucas – Gotmead member kudapucat, experienced award winning mead maker, and our Australian correspondent, from Melbourne
  • Ryan Carlson – long time Gotmead member, the Denver contingent, and strong mead maker with a real bug for scientific mead making
  • Manny Elgarresta – Miami resident, Gotmead member, and meadmaker who loves experimenting with all sorts of stuff. He also has a truly EPIC garage mead making/drinking room

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.
