The Math of You


Episode 097 - FM Radio and Sonic Byways, feat. Sophie Brookover

Ep. 97

Librarian, pop culture writer and co-creator of Two Bossy Dames Sophie Brookover is here to discuss FM radio, music and magazines. Along the way, we discuss how knowing really is half the battle, the eternal television career of Frank McPike, and how you’re never too old to get really excited for your Beatle Block.

Signature Cocktail: the Cricket

A mix of disparate influences blended into a smooth block with more rock and less talk. Just don’t drink during drive time.

  • 1 1/2oz botanical gin
  • 3/4oz grapefruit juice
  • 1/2oz campari
  • 1/4oz elderflower liqueur
  • Twist of grapefruit peel

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with grapefruit peel.
