Getting Lit S1EP10: The Amish Midwife

By Mindy Starns Clark.


“You guys are knee deep in amniotic fluid, and you get his whole CV!”

“He has negative personality. He is a black hole of personality.”

“Tell me your deepest, darkest secret: I have kind eyes.”

“The ‘Could Have Been Much More Sexist’ Award!”

“Wendy and Ilana’s Book Club Amish Midwife Duke Lottery Ticket Fast Cash Winning Numbers Take Me Home Google Podcast.”

Ilana’s Drink: Take me home to my Hazelnut Orchard


  • 3 shots apple cider
  • 2 shots hazelnut liqueur
  • 1 shot whiskey
  • 2 squeezes lime
  • a dash of Cinnamon
  • Cinnamon sugar and Ginger Snap for Garnish


Combine all ingredients and shake up. Drink two in shame of having read the wrong book.

Wendy’s Rant:

People who say they don’t like fiction.

Books we mentioned:

  • It Takes Two to Tangle by Theresa Romain
  • God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
  • Concept of a Corporation by Peter Drucker

Next month’s book:

Grimspace by Ann Aguire
