The Math of You


Episode 011: Internet Gossip and Badger Quizzes, feat. Rosie Fletcher

Ep. 11

Journalist, cohost of the Rosie & Jessica’s Day of Fun podcasts and author of the Oh So Pleasant newsletter Rosie Fletcher is here to talk about how having a computer ruined Teenage Rosie's cultural engagement. Along the way, the show kind of becomes a quiz about Harry Potter houses and patronuses (patroni?), and we reveal why Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan will never be in a Neighbours reunion.  Signature Cocktail: Polyjuice  The results may vary in flavour from person to person, but this drink is always sweet, tart, and fruity… though you may wake up as someone else.    • 2oz dark Jamaican rum • 1 1/2oz cranberry juice • 1/2oz lime juice • 1/2oz unsweetened pineapple juice • 1/4oz Grenadine • 2 dashes Angostura bitters • Mint, for garnish  Combine all ingredients in a shaker of ice, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds, until the outside of the shaker frosts over. Pour, without straining, into a double-old fashioned glass and garnish with mint.   Follow Rosie on Twitter at @ohsewrosie, follow the show at @TheMathOfYou, and my wacky adventures at @lokified.
