Mystery Recipe Presents: Time For Lunch

Mystery Recipe is proud to share an episode from our friends over at the new kids' podcast Time For Lunch with all of our young chefs today!


It’s the season three premiere of Time For Lunch, Hannah and Harry are back to celebrate the tastiest and most historically complex fall holiday: Thanksgiving!


We learn about the history of the Wampanoag and Narragansett people, who lived and thrived in coastal New England before European settlers arrived in what is now the US. Lorén M. Spears, Executive Director of the Tomaquag Museum in Exeter Rhode Island, teaches listeners about the many thanks-giving celebrations that these indigenous communities celebrate all year long. Plus, Harry shares a tasty recipe that’s perfect for this year’s unusual Thanksgiving feast and we have a special gobble-filled dance break. 


Time For Lunch is a production of Heritage Radio Network, a listener supported nonprofit podcast network with 40 weekly shows. Learn more at heritageradionetwork.org
