This week on Arts & Seizures, host Mike Edison is joined again by guest co-host Peter Zaremba talking cocktails with Rosie Schaap. Rosie has been a bartender, a fortuneteller, a librarian at a paranormal society, an English teacher, an editor, a preacher, a community organizer, and a manager of homeless shelters. A contributor to This American Life and npr.org, she writes the monthly “Drink” column for The New York Times Magazine and her memoir, “Drinking With Men,” is available where fine books are sold. Talking about great spirits and drinks, Peter takes it upon himself to create a new cocktail live on air. Musician and friend Andy Shernoff joins as well playing a few tunes while producer Jim Diamond joins the group as a special walk in guest. This program was brought to you by Roberta’s Pizza.
“I’ve been working for a while on a book on whisky. It’s a big subject that requires a lot of active research.” [16:40]
