Guests: Rossi Anastopoulo
Sunday, January 29, 2023
This Week on History Happy Hour: This week on History Happy Hour: What exactly can pie tell us about American history? It’s no half-baked question! Chris and Rick welcome Rossi Anastopoulo, author Sweet Land of Liberty: A History of America in 11 Pies.
We’ll serve up the delicious details on how pies are woven into our history, from the first Thanksgiving to the lunch counter sit-ins in Greensboro North Carolina. Pies, after all, are a subject as American as...apple pie. Which, turns out, is not American in origin at all. So there's lots to learn!
A heaping helping of pie and history, Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap. Only today, with pie. Mmm.
