Show Notes

This week, we discuss the power of agitprop with prolific memelord @radleftdad. In keeping with his persona, he joins us in a pink ski mask and a sprinkle doughnut bucket hat. As a father of two toddlers, he manages to produce radical content during nap time. He describes how inequality, the pandemic, and fatherhood all contributed to his decision to start creating dank leftist & anticapitalist memes. 

Soon, @radleftdad will be releasing his own podcast titled Dagitprop. The show will feature free form interviews with leftist content creators. Don’t miss it!

Agitprop Cocktail

60      ml clear brandy (Blanche Armagnac like PM Spirits’ Cobrafire or Delord, or substitute Pisco)

5     ml    Simple Syrup, or 1 to 3 white granulated sugar cubes

4      dashes Angostura Bitters

1      slice Orange

1     Maraschino or Amarena Cherry 

    30-60     ml    Sprite, Squirt, or Soda Water

Place the sugar cube(s) in an Old Fashioned glass and add the bitters. Add the orange slice, Maraschino or Amarena cherry, and muddle together until it becomes a slushy, grainy mix, making sure to muddle the peel as well to release the aromatics. Add ice and top with the Blanche Armagnac and soda of your choice. Garnish with a fresh cherry and an orange peel. 

Tip: A “sweet” Old Fashioned uses a lemon-lime soda like Sprite, while a “sour” Old Fashioned uses a grapefruit soda like Squirt, and a “press” uses half seltzer and half lemon-lime soda. In Wisconsin, preferences often lean toward sweet, and typically the further north you go, the more sugar cubes you add to a drink.

Glassware:      Old Fashioned Glass

Garnish:         Maraschino or Amarena Cherry and Orange Peel

ABV:         26%
