The Math of You


Episode 037 - Forbidden Media and Dream Machines, feat. Melissa Bright

Ep. 37

Melissa Bright is here to discuss forbidden media, and paths to the devil. Along the way we’ll discuss the gory roots of fairy tales, the joy of squeezing an entire tube of toothpaste down the sink, and how chain pizza restaurants can become a gateway to secular music.

Signature Cocktail: Canner’s Breakfast

This drink prowls the street of manhattan with catlike tread, but always knows the neighbourhood.
2oz Bourbon
1 bar spoon of Marmelade
1/2oz Sweet Vermouth
1/4oz Amaretto
1 dash orange bitters
Combine bourbon and marmalade in a shaker without ice and stir until marmalade dissolves. Add ice and other ingredients and shake to chill and combine. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry and orange twist. Note: for a dryer version, omit amaretto and replace sweet vermouth with dry vermouth.
