Wine Channel TV host/sommelier/wine judge Jessica Altieri jumps in the Mazda 3 to eat pizza from Dough Bros in River North and answer some key questions: *What's a good wine for spring drinking? *What kind of wine should you drink with artichoke pizza? (Selfish question: That's what I was eating in the car.) *Is there a future in car-based food podcasting? We talk about her path to TV host, starting as a basketball-playing jock and ending up on camera with a glass of wine in her hand. "Kiss My Glass" (Jessica's wine guide for everyday, non-snooty wine drinkers) is discussed, too. I also make the observation that Jessica's like a specific Talking Heads song, which leads me to wonder in hindsight which Talking Heads song I am. And did you know Walgreens has wine ambassadors? Jessica used to be one.
