Thanksgiving Thought Starters-Fight Starters-Fight Enders-Podcast 679

Thanksgiving dinner is supposed to be a fun family get together. At times this fall celebration of the harvest can erupt into ugly political and social disputes. Time for some ideas to flip the script in Thanksgiving Thought Starters-Fight Starters-Fight Enders-Podcast 679.

Welcome To The Rollercoaster

Especially relevant is the fact that the holiday season from Thanksgiving to Christmas, can be an emotional rollercoaster for almost all families. Whether you’re hosting the dinner or heading out to a relative’s house it’s a good idea to be prepared.

Freedom of Choice

In Thanksgiving Thought Starters-Fight Starters-Fight Enders-Podcast 679 I share some personal thanksgiving and family experiences to get you thinking. Most important is to remember we all have the freedom of choice about what we think about social or political issues. If you want to hear an example of my own personal thanksgiving experience a few years ago, click here.

What He Said!

When it comes to politics these days, you can bet there will be discussion at the Thanksgiving table about much of the reactive coverage about politics. Add alcohol to the mix, and you will have to decide whether to engage or not, depending on your situation. Of course, give yourself permission to keep your mouth shut, or leave right after dinner, if necessary.


Should you make the decision to engage your crazy uncle on a political level Thanksgiving Thought Starters-Fight Starters-Fight Enders-Podcast 679 gives you ideas on how change the tone of the conversation.

In conclusion when it comes to politics and social issues we could all do with a change in tone. Do we want to be leaders or followers? Rather than fighting about what someone else says on a TV Show why not talk about what we are for? What kind of a world do we think is coming? Where does our energy and advocacy belong.

The Old World Is Passing

Moreover we are seeing fewer positive interactions with the age old institutions of our society like government and religion. What kind of world is coming and what is our role in it? Throw that out over the mashed potatoes and see what happens. Or not.

Cooking Asian at 2 am. These days we hear people say its impossible to cook for one, impossible to cook good nutritious food, too expensive to make healthy dinners, too late to cook, blah blah blah. All you need is a rice cooker, wok and a hot plate, and you can cook great asian food. On a freezing cold February night, join The Bob Davis Podcasts for dinner as we make a great ‘Asian’ dinner, and it takes less than thirty minutes, give or take. (Editor’s Note: Got this idea from eating at one of my favorite places in Chicago, Penny’s Noodles. I ate there so much I thought, I can make this. It took a few tries, and a lot of errors, but I figured out how to make something good. Try it out and let me know how you’ve changed the recipe, or not.) All the ingredients and steps are right here in this podcast. From the brown rice to the basil, to the lime, beef, carrots, garlic, scallions and of course lots of jalapeño peppers! And let’s not forget hot coffee. Lots. Of. Hot. Coffee. So what’s with the 2am? The Bob Davis Podcasts are nocturnal, cranking out the podcasts so they’re hot, fresh and ready for your morning commute. So, 2 in the morning here is like 2 in the afternoon for everyone else. In the time it takes to cook a pizza in the oven, you can have something a lot better if you follow these steps. Sponsored by Depot Star
