Show Notes: Ice Cream

Tracy Wilson

Ice cream!

We recorded this episode just after returning from the Independence Day holiday. (Well, just after I returned - I took a little vacation time, and Holly held the fort. Blame all vacation brain on me.) If you were a fan of our previous podcast, PopStuff, this one may remind you a little of our episodes on the culture of coffee, chocolate and Thanksgiving dinner. We take a tour through the history of ice cream (and some of its frozen precursors) and talk a little about the place it's taken in American culture.

Our listener mail is from Lou, who writes about a family history relating to John Harvey Kellogg.
