"Reality Check"Kristina Wong, Mark Bitterman, Sean Jordan and Esmé Patterson
This episode was originally taped at a live show on December 19, 2015
Comic Kristina Wong fills Luke in on the virtues of live-streaming a first date, Mark Bitterman explains what bitters can do for your holiday cocktails, comic Sean Jordan offers up the sickest burn to his dad ever, and Esmé Patterson's lilting voice warms up your winter.
Recently featured in The New York Times' "Off-Color" series, Kristina Wong is a performance artist, comedian and writer whose work has appeared on APM's Marketplace, Comedy Central, and Totally Biased with Kamau Bell. The East Bay Express deemed her "brutal but hilarious," which is our favorite kind of person.
Chefs have long looked to selmelier Mark Bitterman for his salt expertise, and now professional and amateur mixologists can do the same (just in time for your holiday party!) with the publication of Bitterman's Field Guide to Bitters and Amari.
A singer/songwriter who started her career with Denver's folk-pop septet Paper Bird, Patterson now has a successful solo career in addition to co-writing million-selling songs with Shakey Graves.
