About the Show

Welcome to Adult Beverage Film Podcast, where we will be talking films, new and old, and anything else in the entertainment world while enjoying an adult beverage in hand.

So let’s discuss why this podcast is different from all the others on the market. First of all, It’s made up of people who like to take part in Adult Beverages. Okay, I am sure that most of you can enjoy that concept at home with us. On top of that, it’s going to be made with a special guest each week; of course, they will not use their name or give away their identity, but instead, we will have a unique nickname for them. The mystery guest on each podcast will be actors, filmmakers, athletes, business people, and everyday humans. You might know them, and some you might not know, but they will all have some to say about what we are discussing each podcast.
