The Math of You Episode 011: Internet Gossip and Badger Quizzes, feat. Rosie Fletcher  Elle Collins, host of Into It with Elle Collins, co-host of the Hard Times podcast, and assistant editor for ComicsAlliance is here to talk about space, specifically young adult fiction focused on extraterrestrials and space travel. Along the way, we discuss classic Nintendo games, the mystery of why there was never a Bubble Bobble movie, and short-lived cartoon series designed specifically to sell toys.  Signature Cocktail: the Broxholm  Light and crowd-pleasing, this drink turns out to be surprisingly complex when given its time. However, it does not glow in the dark.    • 2oz bourbon • 1/4oz lemon juice • 3/4oz maple syrup • 2 dashes Angostura bitters • beer, specifically Old Speckled Hen English Brown Ale, or similar  Combine all ingredients (except beer) in a shaker of ice, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds, until the outside of the shaker frosts over. Pour, without straining, into a highball glass, then top up with beer.   Follow Elle on Twitter at @AnotherElle, follow the show at @TheMathOfYou, and my wacky adventures at @lokified.
