The Kids Are Coming

Christmas holidays are fast approaching, and everyone is baking, decorating, cleaning, packing, and booking flights back home, and this includes the kids. Whether they’re 16 and just looking at colleges, 18 and coming home from their first year, or 22 and just heading off to graduate school, if you have children, you can not miss this show. Jan and Serene get the straight story from two students at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, an accredited college that accepts students after their sophomore year in high school. Sophomore Tiffany Albright and junior Meghan McIntosh give parents an idea of what to expect from their kids, and give voice to the concerns many students have returning home for the long holidays. While you baton down the hatches, be sure to listen to this show.

Giving Thanks

This weeks show is all about giving thanks- for those whom we love and who love us, for the opportunities, abilities, and everyday wealth we’ve been blessed with, and for the world that we live in. Jan and Serene hear what people are thankful for across generations. Preschoolers, second graders, seventh graders, college students, and adult community members all come together in this heartwarming show to remind everyone of just how much we have to be thankful for.

Preparing for Thanksgiving

Jan and Serene have acclaimed chef Brian Alberg rehauling Thanksgiving.
