Cider Voice Calls

The Cider Voice Calls Podcast exists to create a simple, digital archive of producer profiles from the best cidermakers that we can reach. Each interview follows the same broad path of questions, intending to capture each producer in the same light so as to highlight their differences. Season 1 was recorded in July & August 2020, and we explore the origins and philosophy of each producer, as well as their reflections on the 2019 vintage and the impact of COVID-19 on their business.
