NHPR's Thanksgiving Special Programming 2022

Thanksgiving is a day to spend time with family and friends, reflecting on what we're grateful for in life. We hope you'll make NHPR a part of your day, as we offer many of your Thanksgiving favorites, like The Splendid Table's Turkey Confidential and Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio. And for the second year in a row, you can wrap up your Thanksgiving with a special live edition of The Folk Show with host Kate McNally.
