The Two Mikes

The Two Mikes
Ever wanted to talk with someone about a book you just read? You could just join a book group and talk about it, drink a little, veer off on tangents, work back around to the book again, and finally wrap it up by picking the next book.

But what happens when the book you just read is about about hungry zombies or a haunted house, and your Eat, Pray, Love–reading friends aren’t really into reading it, much less discussing its finer points? That’s what we’re here for. We Two Mikes will be your virtual book group for discussing new and interesting and old and half-forgotten horror books.

If you want to follow along with us, look at the next forbidden book on the table and start reading.

Toss into a blender with a few cups of ice and set to frappé. Pour. Drink. Plot your revenge.

Episode 8.5, Joe Hill's Heart Shaped Box

Listen to 8.5 - NOW

This is the second half of a very special episode of Necronomipod!

Episode 8.0 - Joe Hill's Heart Shaped Box

The Mikes had so much to jaw about Joe Hill's breakthrough novel that this episode is super-sized and broken into TWO mind-numbing segments. Enough to choke a Doberman. Download them both and be astounded by the discussion of patricide, southern creepiness, urban superiority, and goth girls.

Cocktail Time

Y The Heart Shaped Box

1 shot -Vodka
1/2 shot- Kirshwasser
1/2 shot - Creme de Cacao or Godiva Chocolate Liqueur

Shake with ice, strain, garnish with a cherry.
(or, better yet, just skip this one and pour two fingers of good bourbon over ice and drink.)

Music this week: Mike M. recommends Chris Garneau- Music for Tourists.
Mike S. recommends Grinderman, Nick Cave's latest project.
