"Time Crisis, back once again. It's Sunday, three days after the holiday that some people call Thanksgiving. We don't call it that. We call it Gratefulsgiving, or Gratefulsgivings, or Gratefulgiving. Today, to celebrate this joyous event we're joined in the studio by a plethora of TC family. You'll find out who they are very soon. Plus, we pay tribute to Robert Hunter. This is Time Crisis."



  • Hannah Fidell - film director
  • Kyle Field - musician, of the band Little Wings


The episode begins with a discussion of Olive Garden, it's parent company and rising stock prices. Ezra muses on the name 'Gratefulsgiving', wanting to include more 'S' sounds, which sparks a conversation on surnames ending in 'S'. Birthdays on anniversaries of tragic historical events and the differences in autumn and winter are discussed before it is revealed that Ezra and Rashida dressed up as Jerry and Elaine from Seinfeld for Halloween (unofrtunately no picture available). Robert Hunter, lyricist for the Grateful Dead, is honored, and many of the band's songs are discussed, with a particular deep dive into "Scarlet Begonias".
