Ep.32 - Nasty Neighbors, Sweet House (Ossian Sweet House)

Jess and Alex start off proving that Jess can't (and will not try to) yodel. They talk about some of their current favorite songs and Jess tells Alex all about what goes into the New Orlean's born Sazeracs they are sipping on (rye, absinthe, sugar cube, lemon peel, angostura bitters, peychauds bitters). Jess then goes on to tell Alex about the history of the Ossian Sweet House. How many neighbors showed up to protest the house? What stupid name did they come up with for their neighborhood association? How did those in the house have charges against them dropped after shots were fired through the air? Tune in and find out!
