The Math of You


Episode 105 - After School Specials and Marching Glockenspiels, feat. Emily Fear

Ep. 105

Librarian, wrestling podcaster and expectant parent Emily Fear is here to discuss made-for-TV movies and after school specials. Along the way, we discuss the situations in which out your Yinzer would come, we take a surprisingly deep dive into the ownership of a jar of buttons, and how a TV movie with no budget can fall ass-backwards into fashion verisimilitude.

Signature Cocktail: the Shelby

A hazy drink that’ll have people dying to join you.

  • 2oz bourbon
  • 1oz cold brew coffee liqueur
  • 1oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2oz lime juice
  • 3oz ginger beer

Combine bourbon, coffee liqueur, pineapple juice, and lime juice in an shaker with ice and shake until combined. Strain into a double rocks glass and top up with ginger beer. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
