Maeve In America: Immigration Irl

Thanksgiving Special: What even IS this holiday?



Food is the thing, according to comedian Naomi Ekperigin, a Harlem native with Jewish in-laws who needs a day to recover after their epic dinners. But Maeve has a fuzzy idea that Thanksgiving started in the old days, when everyone made friends? But there’s got to be more to this story of happy Pilgrims and helpful Native Americans, right? Right. A Native American attorney explains why Thanksgiving is a bittersweet occasion for him. Then, back to food of course, we find out about  San Francisco cops that deliver meals to Chinese seniors, and finally Grace Young stir-fries a treat for Maeve under the watchful eye of Huggy the cat.
