This is our Thanksgiving special. Mike and I talked about discussing the origins of Thanksgiving. Going into the history of the first one. We decided that that had been done. We wanted to do something more fitting. What we decided on was to tell what we are thankful for.

We are very thankful for all of you. Each and every listener to the Survivapunk Podcast. Each reader. You make doing this worth it. We don’t say it enough.
