||CleanHalloween||What do you suppose is the most popular American holiday? I mean, after Christmas, what do we spend the most money on, for cards, decorations, even parties?I was surprised to learn that it’s not Thanksgiving or Easter. Hint – it’s a time when we buy lots of candy (which we try not to eat), decorate our houses, and plan for uninvited guests dressed as superheroes or ghouls.Yes, our second most important American holiday - is Halloween! (theme music)You can grow lots of interesting plants for the season; some in the ground and others in planter pots.||10/23/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanCircus Circus, Part 2||Last time, we talked about the beginnings of the Circus Circus, which turns fifty this year. Now it’s a success story. At first, it wasn’t. Let’s look at its evolution.The Circus Circus opened in October 1968. Its guiding force, Jay Sarno, had all kinds of financial problems and eventually had to give up control of it, briefly. But in 1971, he got what he needed to turn it around: a loan from the Teamsters Central States Pension Fund to build a hotel. It would be fifteen stories and more than four hundred rooms.||10/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

1st reviewere is righ
only one cast for each feature is listed. how do you find earlier features?
Reviewer is Wrong
Previous reviewer is wrong: with this feed you get both Curtas and Desert Bloom and whatever other KNPR features are available. (I should know: I administer the podcast feed!)
Terrible for people looking for one podcast
If you want to listen to John Curtas or Desert Bloom, you can't subscribe. There is only one podcast available per speaker. This is the worst way to podcast.
