My friend Jess Murray joins me as we historically analyze the game show Supermarket Sweep! The conclusion we come to is fairly obvious, but also super important in larger context, this show accentuates consumerism culture in America. Check out an episode from the 60's and from the 90's, it is a very entertaining show to watch! 1967: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=se4syko6Law 1994: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmbot1p0Eb0

But until then, here is the primary source goods! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4_zGR_nWRw

Celebrating Autumn With Little Bear
Sorry for this being late! It's a fun one! Fall is here and when I think of seasons in general a cartoon that comes to mind is Little Bear!

A very whimsical, light hearted episode that will hopefully put you in the mood as it gets colder outside! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZV9-hp6TMug

Then and Now: Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa And The Home Run Race of 1998
In 1961 Roger Maris broke Babe Ruth's untouchable single season home run record and it took 37 years for it to be broken again. What seemed like this wonderful event for baseball was tarnished by the realization that steroids helped Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa surpass that record. Here is a documentary that came out in 1998: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hLlX6AM_Qs&t=5s And here are the events that unfolded years later, this being his court hearing where he lies about his steroid use in 2005: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=up_eQUuiDN0 And here is his admittance to using steroids: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3STkQC8pVEE
