Episode 20 – Candle in the End

Show Notes

The world’s worst word-association podcast is back! The theme is “pirates”, so of course Nick brings in a story about a mentally ill woman and Cait shows up with a story of a bogus Turkish sultan. Vague hand-waving connections are only one of our specialties, though, so Cait creates a fig liqueur based cocktail with a Mediterranean flair!

Episode 19 – El Paso or Fail Class

Show Notes

We’re back with a full episode! The topic is ‘haunted schools’, and we ruffled something’s feathers with this one. Nick tells of the many hauntings of Alabama’s University of Montevallo, and Cait breaks down one of El Paso’s many haunted public schools. As if that wasn’t enough haunted happenings, Nick and Cait experienced a handful of ghostly activities while recording the episode itself! Take a break from all this mayhem with a cocktail suitable for any school cold lunch!

RECIPE: Guinness Ice Cream

So this isn’t exactly our recipe–it’s one we received ages ago from someone Nick only talked to briefly online, and it was likely a third-party hand-off at that point as well. But since it was recently National Ice Cream Day, we figured a dark, boozy ice cream recipe was better shared with the world rather than sitting in the back aisles of a stodgy old email archive, so here it is!

  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup Guinness stout
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons molasses
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, scrape in the vanilla bean seeds. Add the pod, milk, and cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Turn off the heat, cover the pan, and let the flavors infuse for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together the stout and molasses. Bring to a boil and turn off heat.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk in a few tablespoons of the hot cream mixture, then slowly whisk in another 1/4 cup of the cream. Add the remaining cream in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan.

Stir the beer mixture into the cream mixture. Cook the custard over medium heat, stirring often with a wooden spoon, for 6 to 8 minutes or until the custard thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon.

Strain the mixture into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Process the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Clip Show: It Came From the Cutting Room Floor!

Show Notes

It’s new to you! Due to some health-related difficulties, we weren’t able to record an episode in time to get released on schedule, so we’ve done the next best thing: dug a bunch of unused clips out of the garbage and hastily glued them together. It works for the last minute Science Fair project in every sitcom ever, so it can work for us! Enjoy our favorite least-favorite moments from the early episodes of the podcast, and we’ll be back with a proper episode in two weeks!

This episode features the music of Chocolat Billy. Be sure to check them out on Spotify or on Bandcamp.
