Wine Chats with Bildo & Lindalin is an independently produced comedy/lifestyle podcast created by us, Billi ‘Bildo’ Milovanovic, Lyndsey ‘Lindalin’ Kirkwood & our in house audio engineer, Tom Milovanovic.
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, Cannabella Hemp Skin Care creator, and more!
What sets us apart? Our friendship! With 12 years of chat experience, our conversations are real, raw and honest. True best friends style that will have you feeling 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
Bildo is dubbed ‘The Dreamer’, as she is constantly off with the fairies coming up with new and exciting directions for Wine Chats – like starting their own podcasting school that doubles as a winery.
Lindalin, ever ‘The Realist’, is organised af and gives Wine Chats direction by actually making things happen. The resident notetaker, Lindalin knows exactly what is going on when, which is handy for a fairy-following-Bildo.
We’ve been with our husbands since 2005 and with each other since 2009 and we have five kids between us (we know this sounds polyamourous. It kind of is.)
Back in 2019, Bildo had to beg Lindalin to start a podcast. Lindalin agreed under one condition – that she do no tech stuff. Bildo has since mastered the editing and production of Wine Chats with the trusty help and expertise of her dad, Tom. Lindalin, on the other hand, focuses on the look of Wine Chats with her design eye, and growing her knowledge of the wine world.
Bildo has two pet mice (Moana and Squeeks). Lindalin is an actual pet person and has a cat (Bruce) and a dog (Frank), and she considers Bildo’s mice as rodents, not pets.
Lindalin is Canadian and believes that bacon belongs with maple syrup. Her current favourite red wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon and she tosses between a Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio for her white wine choices.
Bildo grew up eating meat, cheese and bread in Former Yugoslavia. Her favourite red is…. Pfft, let’s not joke, Bildo drinks beer.
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 a sprinkle of swearing.
