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 152: Carmen Maria Machado's Her Body and Other Parties


Two Mikes and a Linda put on their dancing shoes and head to a party, where all, it seems, is not well. We try to solve the mystery of the crime solvers, learn to say "yes" to the dress (and hear what it has to say in return), and finally pull the ribbon on the whole thing.

It's Cocktail Time!

Difficult at Parties Punch

Freeze ice in a ring, like in a Bundt pan.
Slice a blood orange for garnish.

Then, in a punch bowl, mix:
    3 cups sweet vermouth
    3 cups campari    
Add 1 cup assorted fruit (like Buddah's hand, duryan, ugli, … kidding: just some berries and such)
Pour in 2-3/4 cups prosecco. Stir gently.
Settle ice ring in bowl.

Ladle into those fancy punch cups your grandma left you; garnish with blood orange slice. Commence party.
