Since the very beginning, PRI's This American Life has (every few years) commemorated Thanksgiving in the US with episodes about the exotic mysteries of turkeys, chicken and other fowl. They call it Poultry Slam and episodes from 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2008 are all available for your turkey day and I-refuse-to-even-look-at-a-Walmart day enjoyment.

I highly recommend the 2007 episode. If you're not familiar with Ortolan, that one's a real eye-opener.

This is as good a place as any to link to the amazing This American Life/X-Men poster.

Damn...I was so looking forward to see Ira, Sarah Vowell, David Sedaris, Dan Savage, Alex Blumberg, et al. rendered as X-Men-Type characters.

I thought all back episodes were available to purchase? How is this making them available?

I'm holding out for my Prairie Home Companion / The Wire poster.

They can all be streamed off the website for free.
