It’s been 8 crazy years since David Garofalo decided to start podcasting. But how did The Cigar Authority actually come into existence? We will look back at the history and the madness of The Cigar Authority and let you know why we refer to it as the Catalina Wine Mixer.

We will look at some stats, and have a couple of gifts for you our faithful listeners and surprisingly there are quite a few of you. We will light up a couple of cigars with Anniversary in their name. The first being the Davidoff 702 Series Aniversario No. 3 and the second being the Padron 1964 Anniversary A.
