Nightmares (0:00:00) Nothing interrupts a good night’s sleep like a bad dream that wakes you up to a cold sweat and heavy breathing. Growing up, you probably heard not to eat anything sweet or watch scary movies before bed to keep from having nightmares. Little did you know, there’s much more to it! Michael Nadorff and Christopher Drapeau are specialists in behavioral sleep medicine. They are with us to tell us everything we need to know about nightmares. History of Holiday Fashion (0:13:26) Who hasn’t spent at least a few hours in a thrift store, a craft store, or the back of grandma’s closet, searching for the perfectly horrendous ugly sweater for a Christmas party? Why do we wear what we do around the holidays? Where on earth did these wacky traditions come from? With us to shed some light on this phenomenon is Dawna Baugh, a professor of clothing and textile at Brigham Young University. Thanking Teachers (0:32:45) With Thanksgiving a few days away, how many of you have made lists of things, people, and places you’re grateful for? And on those lists filled with “a good job” and “a loving family”, how many of us thought to put “my child’s hardworking school teacher?” Our kids’ teachers work hard and try their best to make sure our kids get a good education, and they deserve our support. Joining us to share ideas of how we can thank our kids’ teachers is Dr. Amanda Witte from the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools. Jeffersonian Dinners (0:50:32) Have you ever been invited to a Jeffersonian Dinner? Some of you might be nodding your head—while others may have no idea what I’m talking about.

Joining us to tell us more about these unique parties and how you might go about hosting your own is Taylor Buonocore Guthrie, co-creator of Convers(ate) dinner cards and Jeffersonian Dinner host and facilitator.
