Ep: 21 Thanksgiving Part 2 - The Best Secular Holiday?

Hey lady, aren't you supposed to slaughter, pluck and cook that Turkey first?

In this second part, we move past the religious foundations of the European settlement of the Western Hemisphere.  For this show, we discuss the ways in which the national holiday emerges from important cultural events and movements.  Dan exposes some thanksgiving myths, and we find out why you get tired after the thanksgiving meal.  Is tryptophan really to blame? Should we be glad that Thanksgiving is a feast of the "left hand kingdom"?

We discuss Sara Hale,  turkey pardoning, why we eat what we eat, NFL traditions, and what we're thankful for ourselves.
