001-turkey300.jpg

KHSU will air special programming on Thanksgiving: With Good Reason  and The Sporkful. Ethnic Excursions will serve up 'Mellow Melodies" to accompany your cooking.  

With Good Reason 1:00pm
World-renowned naturalist Joe Hutto, subject of the Emmy winning BBC documentary "My Life As a Turkey", discusses how he became a wild turkey mother in the hammocks of Florida. Plus: Pilot Eric Walden gives a play-by-play of the ninja-like moves of the wild turkey—mid-air.  And: The once-scorned bronze-feathered turkey is making a comeback, with the help of organic, free-range farmers like Paul Kelly. Also: Jay Sullivan sends his students off to Thanksgiving Break with a poem about a young engineer’s ingenuity and of course, a turkey.

Ethnic Excursions 3:00

Today on Ethnic Excursions, Halimah serves up Mellow Melodies, the perfect ingredients to season your holiday meal.

  The Sporkful 7:00pm

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.
