About the Show
This is an offensively funny podcast about drinking wine and chatting life.
With each new episode, delve into the complicated and beautiful minds of Bildo & Lindalin as they share hilarious stories, discuss hot topics and divulge all their deepest darkest confessions. A new wine is featured each week.
Wine Chats Podcast is now being broadcast on Podcast Radio in London, Surrey, Manchester and Glasgow!
What is Wine Chats with Bildo & Lindalin?
Wine Chats with Bildo & Lindalin is an independently produced comedy/lifestyle podcast created by Billi ‘Bildo’ Milovanovic and Lyndsey ‘Lindalin’ Kirkwood.
Now, we are not sommeliers – but we refuse to see that as a flaw! We are every day people who order the house white with pride – and offer our honest opinions about marriage, sex, relationships, parenthood, as well as the week’s top talking points. To improve our wine knowledge, in each episode we include a wine fun fact for our listeners. Past guests include a previous Bachelor contestant, wine bloggers, a pilates studio owner, Cannabella Hemp Skin Care creator, and more!
What sets us apart? Our friendship! With 14 years of chat experience, our conversations are real, raw and honest. True best friends style and you’ll feel like you’re part of our tribe while listening.
Wine Chats with Bildo & Lindalin is currently free to listen to and is supported by sponsors, listeners and subscribers. You can support the show by becoming a sponsor, subscribing to the podcast on your favourite app or by telling your people about it.

About the Creators
Billi ‘Bildo’ Milovanovic was born in Former Yugoslavia. In 1995 her family moved to New Zealand due to the Yugoslav war, and in 2000 they arrived in Australia.
She learned to speak English through American television and school in NZ, which explains her weird accent. Billi loves reading which led to her love of writing and her work has been published in a number of online publications.
Billi, with the help of her daddy-o, Tom, edits the podcast.
A mother of two and wife of one, Billi’s oversharing hasn’t gotten her into too much trouble with the Husband – yet. Billi is typically a beer drinker but enjoys a dry wine – red or white, she’s not (too) picky…
Lyndsey ‘Lindalin’ Kirkwood is Canadian born and relocated to Australia in 2005. This would explain her weird accent.
A graduate of an Advertising Diploma from Barrie, Canada, approximately 23 and a half years ago, she is responsible for the look and feel of Wine Chats with the trusty help of her design eye.
Lyndsey is a wife of 13 years and counting, a mother of 3 real (gorgeous) babies and 2 (furry) fur babies. Lyndsey is a proud homemaker and runs the tightest ship you ever did see.
Her days are fuelled by coffee and pilates and her favourite type of wine is Cabernet Sauvignon.
Will I like Wine Chats?
The tone of Wine Chats is fun! Kicking each episode off with wine, it sets the scene for what’s coming – our unfiltered opinions and expletive expressions. Which basically just means we tell our stories honestly and with lots of swearing.
Sponsoring Wine Chats

We are always on the lookout for industry sponsors who will get on board, help us grow and toast our successes with us.

In fact, before there was a podcast, there was only the blog – The Blog of Bildo. Billi started The Blog of Bildo in 2016 and all the articles are still live on winechatspodcast.com.
