In our episode:
Daniel recaps the first third of Ann M. Martin's Claudia and the First Thanksgiving, where the BSC members learn how to read (bias in news publications), Ms. Garcia's 8th grade class is woke AF, and Claudia hums about pie.
Writing a Thanksgiving play for the third-grade class she coaches, Claudia is disappointed when some parents object to her less-than-traditional themes, and she must choose between letting the other kids down or fighting censorship.
