With October here, some folks in the cigar industry have begun turning their attention to what cigars will make it on the end of the year Top 25 lists, which then starts the discussions about Top 25 lists, how useful they are, and much more.

Tim Swanson, host of Cigars Daily LIVE has an interesting premise for this week’s Cigars Daily LIVE, and it’s about The Downfall of Top 25 Cigar Lists. What does that mean? You’ll have to tune in to find out.

So join Tim and me for what should be an interesting discussion about end of the year top cigar lists. You can ask questions via the show’s comments section, and host Tim Swanson and I will get to as many of them as possible.

The show starts at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT on YouTube.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
