Episode 079 - Kids WB Cartoons and Frozen Peas, feat. Katie Schenkel

Ep. 79

Comic book writer and podcaster Katie Schenkel is here to talk about Kids WB cartoons and summer vacations. Along the way, we discuss grass stains, skinned knees, and loophole abuse in wish-granting coins; the incredibly dark body horror centre of the Animorphs Tootsie Pop, and how Animaniacs was the Great Illustrated Classics of Saturday morning cartoons.

Signature Cocktail: The Banshee

They say that nice drinks are quiet and behave. They used to say that to me too, and they weren’t right then, either.

1oz cognac

1oz amaretto

3/4oz lemon juice

1/2oz maraschino liqueur

1/2oz simple syrup*

Cherry garnish

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake vigourously and strain into a cocktail glass. You can also pour into a rocks glass and top up with ginger beer for a Big Banshee.

*I subbed simple syrup with honey syrup while testing and it was a great addition
