Episode 51- November 25, 2015

Weather may be the only safe conversation topic in some company.  On Thanksgiving Eve, host Jennifer Ellsworth describes a brief history of American weather forecasting and shares Maine's record breaking snows: perfect tidbits to accompany your giblets.  She also tells about an unusual Thanksgiving spent in a fondly remembered "crackhouse" and reads a short story about a fearless boy and an operatic ogre, called "The Boy and the Ogre."

"...Once upon a time there was a boy who lived with his mother in a house on the edge of the woods.

            Perhaps you saw their house, when it was still there...."

Episode 50- November 11, 2015

Tonight's New Snow Moon marks the Lunar Samhain, when thresholds of all sorts wear thin.  Host Jennifer Ellsworth explores the bones of being alone in a true story about a dinner for one in recovering Hiroshima, and a fictional story about a World War II veteran who doesn't quite fit with the group.  It's called "After the Meeting."

..."They hadn’t invited Frank at first. It was a PTST group and Frank had never seen combat. But then George Pendleton succumbed to his lung cancer, and just two weeks later John DiLalio died of a stroke. The group was shrinking and besides, Frank was the only WWII vet left shuffling the halls of Togus VA Medical Center not in the group...."
