We know you're tired of all of the standard holiday season film suggestions, so why don't you channel your twin desires to veg out in front of the tube and expand your horizons? We asked Marine Boudeau, WNYC's Director of Product & User Experience and resident French person, to make us an alternative list of films to stream.
It's a rarity that Thanksgiving and Hanukkah overlap (it won't happen again for 80,000 years!), but with all the recipes, advice and guides to the celebrations, we're feeling a dangerous amount of holiday overload. So what if the two actually cancelled each other out? Think of all the amazing things you could spend your time doing. Here, a guide to an anti-Thanksgivukkah long weekend.
Join Andy Borowitz (The Borowitz Report at The New Yorker) as he challenges comedians Negin Farsad, Baratunde Thurston, Sara Schaefer and James Adomian to dissect the week's news in this special panel show recording for WNYC and BBC Radio 4.

In case you're one of those New Yorker who forgets to look up while walking around the city, you're really missing out. The fall foliage in the city is gorgeous right now. Our next heavy rainfall threatens to remove leaves from the trees, so let's take advantage of this weekend to capture all the beauty.
A ham and cheese sandwich floats in midair. A Weber grill is sliced in half to expose a burger sizzling inside. The Photography of Modern Cuisine is both a visual feast and a practical guide to food photography.
At WNYC, we've been experimenting with new ways to tell stories about health. Over the last couple of weeks, you may have heard some of these experiments on This American Life and On The Media, which aired stories from a pilot project we called "The Antidote". The theme of our initial broadcast: "DNA Secrets." You can listen to the whole pilot project above -- just press play to stream it. You can also scroll down to see a video we produced for that pilot: it follows Kelly, pictured at left, who kept a radio diary for us as she received genetic test results that would change her life.
