Black Friday and the War on Christmas {{Listen}}

Tags: , , , ,

Well, it’s the week after Thanksgiving. Which means we’ve entered “The Holiday Season” — whatever that means!

And what exactly does it mean? What happens on that fateful Friday after Thanksgiving? Why do consumers go all crazy about getting that magical price on a plasma TV by camping out in the freezing cold for hours before?  Is this truly the way to spend the holiday? We talk a bit about how “Black Friday” has now become a part of our collective lives in the USA.

And after all of that — we (your favorite Jew and Muslim) delve into the “War on Christmas” — in which certain retail outlets have opted to use a more ecumenical “Seasons Greetings” instead of “Merry Christmas” to include a more diverse base of customers — and in which some have returned to “Merry Christmas” out of pressure by those who feel that Christmas has become an endangered species.  We have our own views on it as non-Christians. Listen and discover!

As always — we want to hear what you think! Hit us up on Twitter (@ThatsMyHummus) or Facebook (//www.facebook.com/HeyThatsMyHummus/)  Add us! Like us! Let that be your gift to us. 🙂

 

{LISTEN} Happy Thanksgiving and Mitt Romney. Obviously.

Tags: , , , , ,

We talk about Thanksgiving and why nobody seems to want to talk about Mitt Romney.

I thought it was riveting.

To our American listeners, Happy Thanksgiving.

To our listeners outside the U.S., well, I suppose your turkeys are glad they don’t live in America.

So, there’s that.

To everyone: Thanks so much for your support, the downloads, your encouragement, the downloads, and of course liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter.

You’re the best listeners EVER.

 

TLC’s All American Muslim and Penn State {{LISTEN}}

TAGS: None

 

The Learning Channel debuted the first episode of its eight part series set in Dearborn, Michigan called “All American Muslim.” Mike and I had the chance to screen the first two episodes before they aired, and, of course, you want to know what we think.

And then there’s the Penn State thing.

Oy.
