Kirsten and Dannielle have their final discussion of time to wrap up Season 3 and this time it's a doozy. They focus on a study done in 2000 where prayer was used to retroactively heal patients four to 10 years before. Dannielle explains the concept of past, present and future happening at the same instance, therefore we are able to affect the outcomes in the past. Kirsten takes the subject and pairs the discussion to a Chilean Carmenere, a grape that until the 1990's was thought to be something else.
