Ep 52: Five Deer

Muttstuff Media / BewilderBeasts

Trigger warning: Today's episode discusses genocide, the dark truth behind America's most gluttonous holiday. Why you should be eating eel and deer instead of turkey and potatoes on Thursday, and how writers of the 1800's completely SQUAWKED up how we learn about Thanksgiving today. And we learn what they didn't teach you in school about the first feast. Buckle in, it's a rollercoaster.
