The Math of You


Episode 066 - Twin Peaks and Robin Aspirations, feat. Joseph Scrimshaw

Ep. 66

Comedian and podcaster Joseph Scrimshaw is here to talk about comics books and Twin Peaks. Along the way, we discuss the consequences of throwing a cheese curd at a mummy, how Dale Cooper as a role model for non-toxic masculinity, and the careful balance of a story set halfway between horror and hope.

Signature Cocktail: The Diane

When the will is invoked, the recuperative powers of the physical body are simply extraordinary. Just give me a couple of drinks to get dressed.

2oz botanical gin

1/2oz dry vermouth

1/2oz sweet vermouth

1 dash green chartreuse*

Lemon twist, for garnish

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice, and shake vigourously (or stir, if you’re a purist). Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a twist of lemon.

*Depending on your taste, you can vary the amount of Chartreuse from just a dash to a full teaspoon.
