Thanksgiving Episode (Episode 3)

In this special Thanksgiving episode, I shed some light on the reality that Thanksgiving is not a happy and joyful holiday for all Americans. But in fact a National Day of Mourning for some. The episode features some audio from the documentaries 'The Real Story of Thanksgiving' by the History Channel (http://tinyurl.com/2g3yzf6)and 'The True Story of the First Thanksgiving' by PBS (http://tinyurl.com/y7rrzx5j), as well as text from the 2015 article 'Why Thanksgiving Is A ‘National Day Of Mourning’ For Some Americans' by Sam Levine (http://tinyurl.com/y88r3xcd). Artwork as always by the super-designer Laurens Hebly.
