We’re back, and our snifters are full of that most grape-y of base liquors, brandy. Josh learns how to test booze by exploding it, and Kate learns that Winston Churchill was getting free Turkish hooch long after he was dead. Join us!
We drink vodka! All the hacky Russian jokes you expect, you’re gonna get in this episode. Kate discovers Russian demolition derby. Josh goes on a crusade with the Livonian Knights. Join us!
Yo-ho-ho! Rum is the by-product of sugar, but it’s the whole subject of this week’s show. Josh pitches Kate on Laurence Olivier in an eyepatch (not a hard sell). Kate laments the awkwardness of dads. Join us!
Kate and Josh begin a look at the base liquors that make up your favorite cocktails with a dive into the history and vibrant present of gin, the juniper-est sauce in the Navy. Kate explains chaps to Josh. Josh explains why he’d never be able to AirBnB. Join us!
Our shallow dive into party food reaches its briny depths with this week’s discussion of the humble shrimp cocktail. Kate teaches us about Fanny Cradock and the Major. Josh ponders the theology of the Blue Oyster Cult. Join us!
Drink too much for some reason lately? Feeling down for some reason? Some reason we won’t mention? Need to take a mental health day and stay at home and watch comfort movies? For some reason? We got ya covered in this new world we’re all living in.
Kate and Josh endanger their immortal souls by praising the men who flouted God’s will by creating ice from mere water. Hear the harrowing tale of America’s first battle between Frankenwater and all-natural ice. Long about the time we finish, the Hagg boys are stirring up a whole mess of trouble in 1975’s “Moonrunners,” a dry run for “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Join us!
