Texas Standard: November 23, 2017

They traveled to a new world and the native peoples embraced them, breaking bread on the banks of the Rio Grande. We’ll explore the other first thanksgiving. And: As families across the Lone Star State feast on the traditions of the day, a historian tells us about a chapter missing from most history books: and how the great meat crisis could have left us having hippo for dinner. Also: A pigskin rivalry that many thought was one for the history books: could Texas and Texas A&M kickstart a turkey day tradition? Plus: Holiday movies, how a newcomer is building Texas roots with her boots, the gratitude attitude in post-Harvey Houston and a whole lot more. It’s a special Thanksgiving edition of the Texas Standard.
