Episode 15: Anxiety Makes Terrible Murderers

Happy Birthday Month to Amanda. As is the tradition, birthday month means you get to set the curriculum. This episode is dedicated to Edgar Allen Poe and The Tell-Tale Heart.

If you’d like to drink along:

A Corpse Reviver


Supposedly, this is to help with hangovers, but it’s pretty damn strong, y’all.

  • 1 part apple brandy
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
