It's officially Fall and host Eric Dwinnells has gone pumpkin crazy! Tonight we'll discuss the origins of carving pumpkins and putting candles in them. We'll learn al about the legend of the wicked Jack O'Lantern and his deals with the devil. We'll also learn a little about the Celtic holiday of Samhain and what role carved turnips played in those celebrations. You'll also learn how the tradition of making Jack-o-lanterns came to the Americas and why the Christian Right has a huge problem with them. Other topics include pumpkin beer, pumpkin pie, roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin scented candles and Eric's deep thoughts on real -vs- fake pumpkins!

There is a bit of audio on this episode from a video I discovered via this website. You should go check it out. Tons of groovy stuff.
