While Green Bay versus Baltimore will be interesting, the early slate of this week’s NFL games is not compelling. So come watch me on Fuente & Meerapfel: Meet The Professor.

For those unfamiliar with this live show, it started last year just as the pandemic was getting going. It’s still here and with a trio of hosts with some long résumés: José Blanco, Carlos “Carlito” Fuente Jr. and Jeremiah Meerapfel.


I am guessing we’ll talk about halfwheel, the current state of the cigar industry, FDA and who knows what else.

I am an editor and co-founder of halfwheel.com/Rueda Media, LLC. I previously co-founded and published TheCigarFeed, one of the two predecessors of halfwheel. I have written about the cigar industry for more than a decade, covering everything from product launches to regulation to M&A. In addition, I handle a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff here at halfwheel. I enjoy playing tennis, watching boxing, falling asleep to the Le Mans 24, wearing sweatshirts year-round and eating gyros. echte liebe.
