Dan Pilkey worked for years to earn the title of Master Sommelier, an accomplishment that required passing the most rigorous wine tasting test in the world. A month later, he was stunned to learn that his achievement—and the titles of the 22 other Master Sommeliers from his test date—was being nullified. The reason? An unprecedented cheating scandal. Dan talks to Michael and Pat about his life's work that led him to that test, and what the cheating scandal looked like from the perspective of its collateral damage.
