Episode 6: Boston Cream Pie and Communism

Episode 6: Boston Cream Pie and Communism

This episode Melissa, Kate and Aimee discussed the Kitchen Debate of 1959, McCarthyism, and how Boston Cream Pie helped thaw the Cold War. We ponder the similarities between the leaders of the USSR and US Conservatives, admiring both groups’ abilities to troll opposition. Melissa takes a bold stance on genitalia, and Aimee gives a brief review of “Downton Abbey for Lesbians.” We laughed, we cry-laughed, and of course, we drank.

Our Drink this episode was the Off the Wall cocktail–which led us to briefly dive into the history of Pride and the Stonewall Uprising (we’ll publish the recipe later this week). The recipe for Boston Cream Pie can be found here.
