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 93: John Wyndham's Day of the Triffids

The Mikes stumble blindly into a foundational book for today's horror. We ponder the mysteries of life-threatening horticulture and the plant-zombie apocalypse and end up with a lot of leaves in our teeth.

It's Cocktail Time!

The Trifferita

In a blender combine
  • 2 shots tequila (something gold in color)
  • 1 shot blue curaƧao
  • 1 or 2 leaves of two different herbs that sound like they'll taste good in a margarita
  • 1 leaf of an herb that does NOT sound like it'll taste good in a margarita
  • crushed ice (if you want a blended variety)
Blend and pour over ice (if you haven't already blended it in). 

Special closing music: "The Fatal Flower Garden" by Nelstone's Hawaiians
