Jon Hagadorn Podcast Host
In November of 1620 the Pilgrims arrived by ship to a new land filled with danger and uncertainty, a world in which nearly half of them would soon die of starvation and sickness, their final resting place being unmarked graves so as not to let the surrounding Indians know how many of their group had been lost. Yet with unshakable faith and strength of spirit, the survivors of that first winter set to work to fell trees and build a village, they found the strength to clear fields and plant crops when the springtime came, and they forged an alliance with the Wampanoag Indians for their mutual benefits. Then, despite that first year of incredible hardship and loss, they set aside a few days in the fall of 1621 to give thanks to their God for all the blessings they had received. This was the first Thanksgiving at Plymouth in what we now call Massachusetts. This is their story.. Join us as we take a look back at the first Thanksgiving in Plymouth back in 1621. If you have a minute, visit our Facebook page at and answer our question "Despite this hard year-what are you most thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Wars of the Roses, Katherine of Aragon and Bess of Hardwick
The Wars of the Roses, or the Cousins Wars, were one of the most deadly and tumultuous times in English history, resulting in the death of many nobles. Today, Rachael Dickzen and I talk about some of the key players of the time: Henry VI, Edward IV, the Kingmaker, and Richard, Duke of York. We also discuss the women of the Wars of the Roses, including Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Margaret of Anjou. We take a look at the family tree of Edward III and how that affected history, and we also touch base on sanctuary and quick executions.   Then historian and author Heather Darsie joins us again for Ask the Expert. Today’s topic is Katherine of Aragon (and her family), and we ask Heather the questions you submitted on social media. You’re really going to enjoy this one as Heather once again shatters our idea of what actually happened between the sheets with Katherine and Arthur Tudor. Lastly, Steph joins us again to share with you the story of the amazing Bess of Hardwick - you won’t want to miss this episode….listen in segments if you need to, but be sure to listen to it all.   Wars of the Roses: Open - 39:37 Katherine of Aragon: 39:38 - 1:08:34 Bess of Hardwick: 1:08:35 - 1:18:30 -- Credits: Written by: Rebecca Larson & Stephanie Stohrer Voiced by: Rebecca Larson, Stephanie Stohrer, Rachael Dickzen & Heather R.
