Amy Stewart: The Drunken Botanist

To celebrate the two-year anniversary of Mike’s book “Garden to Glass: Grow Your Drinks From the Ground Up,” he sits down with one of his influences over the years, best-selling author Amy Stewart. Mike talks to Amy about her groundbreaking book “The Drunken Botanist,” as well as her many other books and projects, including her successful turn as a mystery novelist. Amy discusses her process for writing and making art and how the two forms can be similar yet completely different.

Also discussed: drinking tequila at Google, talking to tree collectors, planting a “poison garden,” and bringing to life the story of three sisters who solved crimes in the northeast nearly 100 years ago.
