Many of you may be headed to the airport or the interstate for holiday travel, and if so, you might want to pass the time by listening to the podcast of a recent interview that I did with Professor Al Zambone of Augustana College. Zambone maintains a great site called “Historically Thinking” that features conversations with historians on a wide range of topics. Al and I had a lengthy conversation recently about popular memory of the First Thanksgiving, and you can find it here.
Alternatively, you might be interested in a different podcast on Thanksgiving that I did with my old University of Washington colleague, political scientist Anthony Gill, who moderates a wonderful site titled “Research on Religion.” You can access that podcast here.
Both individuals are wonderful scholars and you would find much of value on their sites.
