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.

Episode 26.0 A. M. Homes's The End of Alice

click image to listen

The Mikes stretch their notion of horror with this book and get their faces rubbed in the icky underbelly of America's love life. They (bad-)touch on a lot of taboo topics as they discuss one the more forbidden books we've treated so far on the 'cast. Enjoy!

It's Cocktail Time!

The Fuzzy Bunny

3 scoops Blue Bunny vanilla ice cream

1 shots peach brandy (or schnapps)

1 shot Triple Sec

1 shot Coconut Milk

Place in blender and blend until smooth; you may need to wait until ice cream softens.

Serves three. Do not serve to children, you big pervert.

Didn't finish this one due to the ick factor of the subject matter, but your episodes on A Christmas Carol and House were fun, funny, erudite and great to work to.

Please continue! I'll be exploring your archives and tuning in for future podcasts.

Well-read and prepared people in conversation about a book. What a concept.
