Ep. 24

Writer, podcaster, and one-half of The Doubleclicks Angela M. Webber is here to discuss They Might Be Giants and American Girl dolls. Along the way, we discuss how it’s possible to have all the posters in your room be of people named John, how tit’s not possible to have a band full of Dans when your drummer is named Marty, and how even when you’re picking your imaginary friend, you can still be eminently practical.  Signature Cocktail: the Exquisite Dead Guy  Whether you’re in a concrete shrine, Apartment 4, Brooklyn, Charleston, or Cabbagetown, this drink will provide you an oasis of hooch, although afterwards, you may not know if you’re Ana Ng, Doris Cunningham, Dr Worm, or Dan Hankey’s Actual Drums.  2oz reposado tequila 2oz mandarin juice (or lemon juice for more sour, or orange juice for more sweet) 1oz sweet ’n’ sour* 1oz Cointreau Run a lime wedge around the rim of a cocktail glass, and dip it into some kosher salt.
