Classic Cold Slither Podcast Episode 43: Word to Big Bird – The PBS episode

This classic episode originally aired on October 25, 2012.

This episode finds the Cold Slither Podcast crew looking back at the many shows offered on PBS from back in the day up through today. Sure, Big Bird was put in the spotlight during the recent Presidential debates, but no one can doubt the impact that PBS’s programming had on most of us who came up through the last few decades.

From Sesame Street & The Electric Company to Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood to 3-2-1 Contact, Reading Rainbow, Ghost Writer and everything in between, listen as we go back through the shows sponsored by Viewers Like You.

(also, listen in for a special musical appearance by a surprise guest!)
