    Happy Thanksgiving to the Retroist staff and all the Retroist fans, may your day be full of great food, family, friends,and a little time to reflect on how lucky we are to be Americans.

    Great podcast, brought back many of my own memories and I think Christopher’s artwork is just terrific.

    You should do another one of these and talk about some of the more notable floats. Didn’t they do a He-Man one?

    Its been a few month, but I think when I recorded this I did a much more comprehensive listing of floats, but without the visual it felts very flat, so I cut it out. Maybe I can figure something out that will work better for the upcoming Turkey day.
