We're pleased to announce the availability of Merry Podcast #14 -- The Big Thanksgiving Show 2011. Click here to listen or right click to save-as
This one hour Thanksgiving extravaganza explores Thanksgiving's best moments on television, a story about the history of Santa in advertising and the evolution of Santa's popular image in America over the past 200 years, the exploration of a discussion by the Founding Fathers about just what the national bird should be (Ben Franklin voted for the turkey) and we also present a very special Thanksgiving message framed around the classic Christian hymn, Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.
This show has been in preparation for months. In fact, by the time we put everything together we found that we had more than 2 hours of Thanksgiving to present in a one-hour podcast....so we had to make some tough choices about what to include this time around and what to hold on to for next time.
That means you'll have to get through Thanksgiving this year without knowing all we know about the secrets of great stuff (seriously, we spent HOURS on this feature about stuffing and it broke my heart not to include it).
Look for another quick turnaround before our next podcast -- in fact, look for it right after Thanksgiving. We have so much Christmas yet to share and we're going to get it all in
