We decided to do something fun for our holiday episode. So we invited “Hell on Wheels” actor Leon Ingulsrud over to my place to share with us his love of martinis, their history, and how this gin-based, cultural touchstone has given him insight into what it means to be an American. The result, however, was what you might expect. Enjoy, and please remember to drink responsibly this holiday season, always have a designated driver, and DO NOT try this at home. Happy holidays.
We mentioned that our friend and collaborator Jonathan Meiburg (who composed our theme music) has a new album coming out. You can find information about the album “Loma” here.
