Hello, everyone! It is Thanksgiving here in the States, and as always, we’re gearing up for a day of feasting and family. But as Linus Van Pelt would remind us, Thanksgiving is about far more than just dinner. We live in a country where many, many people had to suffer, fight, die to win us our freedoms over the past four centuries, and on this day more than any other, those people deserve our gratitude. The people in our lives deserve our gratitude. The people we love deserve to know it.
So Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and while you’re eating (I will be to) remember all the things that really make this life worthwhile.
Okay, enough of the schmaltz. I’ve still got a new episode of the Evercast for you today, friends, and as Thanksgiving for many of us marks the official start of the Christmas season, why not take a page from my good buddy Walt Kneeland and give A Long November a listen while you’re on your way to Grandma’s house?
This week on the Evercast, I talk Thanksgiving, National Novel Writing Month, and the new promo I’ve put together before taking you guys into part four of A Long November. In this episode, it’s Thanksgiving for Duncan, and Lou is growing desperate. There’s only one thing left he can think of to save Duncan before time runs out. It’s time for “The Trip.”
Theme music by Jeff Hendricks. Evercast logo by Heather Petit-Keller. Additional music: Merry Freakin’ Christmas by the Mydols & Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Opp Sept Demo, provided by the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.
