174: Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Milestones

174: Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Milestones

Dec 29, 2000
Birthdays, anniversaries, and milestones of all sorts...and how they mean something whether we want them to or not. A live show taped for our fifth anniversary, back in 2000, when we went on the road to Boston, New York, Chicago, and L.A. Featuring house band OK Go.
A co-production with public radio stations WBUR, WNYC, WBEZ, and KCRW.
  • Regular TAL contributor Sarah Vowell takes over the family Thanksgiving dinner by bringing everyone to New York. What results is a series of milestones and family firsts. Everyone in the family is the kind of person who prefers to be alone, so the very thing that binds them together as a family actually makes it hard for them to spend time together.
