JD and Denise welcome Tyler, our Memphis mixologist, back from his big Middle American Road Trip- from Route 66 to the outskirts of Colorado, Tyler ate and drank his way thru the mid-west. He got major inspiration for his newest creation, aptly called "One From The Road", made with bourbon, brown sugar, spicy New Mexican pepper, and of course some Amaro bitters and a gorgeous garnish. Tyler explains the explosion of flavours and different types of bitters, as well as the Mezcal trend and why we better buy it up soon. These shows with Tyler are really worth watching, so you can see the ingredients and style in his cocktails. To view on our YouTube channel, click this link.

Welcome to episode 69 of the Lesbian Book Club, where Clare interviews UK author Kate Davies. Kate is a novelist, screenwriter and author of children's books. Her debut novel “In At The Deep End” won the 2020 Polari Prize and was shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize for comic fiction. The Guardian described it as 'without doubt, the afterparty book for anyone looking to continue their Fleabag fun'. Kate talks about writing from a place of truth, celebrating queer London, living her best life in a Scottish castle, and writing stuff that shocks you. “There’s stuff in the book I’d be embarrassed to read out loud!”

 

Clare also does a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as updating you on the latest news of lesbian fiction conferences & awards season. She has new audiobooks of “Hot London Nights” and “The Long Weekend” out now, and Big London Dreams is available for pre-order, out in July. Find out more at: www.clarelydon.co.uk
