Episode 013: Tween Fiction and Interest Badges feat. Jessica Fletcher

Ep. 13

Cohost of Rosie and Jessica’s Day of Fun and West End Wardrobe Gremlin Jessica Fletcher is here to talk about tween fiction from the 80s and 90s, particularly those that revolve around a shared hobby. Along the way, we discuss environmental fiction, how to gain your Party Planner interest badge if you’re a Brownie,and at what precise moment it becomes officially okay to bail on a pub quiz.  Signature Cocktail: the Suntot  Earth and wind and sea and gin and lemon and not a pickled egg to be seen for miles.    • 2oz botanical gin • 1/2oz Triple Sec • 1/2oz lemon juice • A long strip of lemon peel  Combine all ingredients (except peel) in a shaker of ice, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds, until the outside of the shaker frosts over. Pour, without straining, into a pre-chilled champagne saucer.   Follow Jessica on Twitter at @ohsewjessica, follow the show at @TheMathOfYou, and my wacky adventures at @lokified.
