Science and Thanksgiving

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse Specials series | 58:59

Thanksgiving usually means we’re going big — way over the top. Twice the size bird we could possibly eat. More side dishes than the table can hold, and of course, so much pie. We travel great distances to see our families and friends — we hug, we eat, we argue, and we nap. On this special episode of The Pulse, we explore the traditions and rituals of Thanksgiving through a scientific lens. We hear stories about the neuroscience of gratitude — and how it can help us through grief; the environmental impact of our holiday feasts, from cranberries to food waste; and ask whether turkeys are really as dumb as they look.

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small

Turkeys have a reputation for being big, dumb birds. But are they? And what does it mean for a bird to be smart anyway? Reporter Alan Yu explores.

When neuroscientist and gratitude researcher Glenn Fox lost his mother right before Thanksgiving, he had to put his research to the test. Could expressing gratitude really help him through this difficult time, and improve his mental health?

Much of our Thanksgiving feast ends up in the trash a few weeks after the big day. Jad Sleiman introduces a family that does all their food shopping at grocery store dumpsters, in an effort to fight global food waste. We hear about how this problem affects the environment — and what we can do about it.

Steph Yin visits the New Jersey pine barrens to meet multi-generational families devoted to cranberry farming, to find out what they’re doing to preserve their land for the future.

We chat with Yale GI specialist Earl Campbell about what happens inside of our digestive tract when we overeat.
Thanksgiving is about rituals that connect us to those we love. Reporter Nina Feldman talks about her yearly gathering with friends the night before Thanksgiving – and why it matters so much to all of them.

From WNYC | 51:28

An entertaining, informative, and personal radio special with Dan Pashman, host of The Sporkful podcast. Featuring Mo Rocca, Amy Sedaris, Sam Sifton, Robert Krulwich and Brooke Gladstone. From WNYC Radio.

Sporkful_turkey_thanksgiving_logo_1400x1400-2_small Would you like to spend Thanksgiving with Mo Rocca, Amy Sedaris, and Robert Krulwich? Well unfortunately, you can't. But listening to this one-hour radio special, hosted by Dan Pashman of The Sporkful podcast and Cooking Channel’s You’re Eating It Wrong, is the next best thing.

"Thanksgiving Is For Eaters" is an entertaining combination of in-studio interviews, listener calls, and in-kitchen segments. You’ll learn useful tips about how to make classic Thanksgiving dishes, interesting facts about the science of cooking and the art of eating, and surprising details about the ways in which diverse cultures have adapted Thanksgiving traditions and made them their own.

So how do some of public radio's favorite personalities celebrate Thanksgiving?

"I start the day feeling inadequate," says Mo Rocca. "Because I don't cook."

So begins host Dan Pashman's quest to prepare listeners of all skill levels for every aspect of the big day.

Rocca and Amy Sedaris share tips for holiday entertaining, covering everything from what music to play to mediating family disputes. NY Times Magazine drinks columnist Rosie Schaap brings Dan to her bar, where she offers the perfect cocktail for a fall day in the kitchen (pro tip: not too many!). Radiolab’s Robert Krulwich discusses the economics of leftovers and tells the story of the time a turkey tried to put the moves on his wife. On the Media’s Brooke Gladstone takes Dan into her kitchen to teach him how to make her trademark Thanksgiving dessert, a Mennonite dish with saltines in it. (Spoiler alert: Everything goes wrong to hilarious effect, but the dish still comes out just right.) Plus: Kenji Lopez-Alt of Serious Eats breaks down the science of bird-brining and basting, and NY Times food editor Sam Sifton explains why cloth napkins on the table are the equivalent of a leather interior in a car.

Between these lively conversations, you’ll hear from listeners all over the country recounting the sights, smells and tastes that answer the question, “How do you know it’s Thanksgiving in your house?” And we even check in with a real Thanksgiving veteran, a beleaguered but always cheerful Butterball Turkey Talkline Lady.

Jell-O Makes the Modern (Mountain) Woman (Gravy Ep. 34)

From Southern Foodways Alliance | Part of the Gravy Podcast series | 21:41

Jell-O could seem like a trivial food. It’s brightly colored, nutritionally void, and, hey, it jiggles. But in Appalachia, Jell-O marked a transformation in the lives of rural residents.

2016-03-24_jell-o_podcast_2_small

Jell-O could seem like a trivial food. It’s brightly colored-- vibrantly orange, electric green or unsettlingly blue—nutritionally void, and, hey, it jiggles. But in Appalachia, Jell-O marked a transformation in the lives of rural residents.

In this episode of Gravy, Kentucky writer Lora Smith sifts through a trove of oral histories that demonstrate the sea change in culinary that Jell-O represented. It served, for these communities, as a benchmark in a time. Life could be sorted into a pre-Jell-O and a post-Jell-O era.

Traditions for Thanksgiving

From Delmarva Public Radio | Part of the Beer Notes series | 02:00

When the Mayflower was being stocked for the long journey to the New World, beer was among the highly valued stores put aboard. This week on Beer Notes, we are discussing beer on the Mayflower and in the early colonies.

Beernoteslogo_small

When the Mayflower was being stocked for the long journey to the New World, beer was among the highly valued stores put aboard.  This week on Beer Notes, we are discussing beer on the Mayflower and in the early colonies.

 

Water was the last thing that anybody wanted to drink because it carried the risk of disease.  Water was boiled during the beer making process and thus rendered the beverage much safer. 

 

The Mayflower’s Captain, rationed 1 gallon of beer to each man and woman on the ship.  Even some children enjoyed beer rations.

 

They Mayflower took 66 days to cross the ocean.  They set sail for Virginia, but were blown off course.  Captain Jones needed to conserve enough beer for the return trip so he recommended the ship land near Plymouth and not push for Virginia.  Willam Bradford, the ship’s diarist, complained that the passengers “were hastened ashore and made to drink water, that the seamen might have more beer.” [1]

 

After establishing a settlement, the colonists started brewing beer.  Because barley crops often failed and importing malt was prohibitively expensive, some brewers were using ingredients more common here.  Corn was a staple in early American beers and “the meat of the pumpkin took the place of malt entirely” in some beers produced in the mid 1600s[2] 

 

Shore Craft Beer wishes all settlers in this New World, a very Hoppy Thanksgiving.  May beer be part of your celebration as it has been for hundreds of years!  For Beer Notes, this is Ann McGinnis Hillyer
