Episode 78 – Encore Presentation of Mr. Rogers (ep. 28)

This week join Steve, Andrew, and Jonathan on an encore presentation of our Mr. Rogers episode to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Mr. Rogers’ debut (February 19, 1968). In this episode we discuss Fred Rogers as a counter-cultural figure. Can we view his choices regarding race and sexual preference as revolutionary? Pragmatic? or did he simply NOT do enough? Join us as we attempt to unwrap the relationship between Mr. Rogers, social issues, and his own personal spirituality. Here is the link to the original episode’s page featuring extra images and video. link

Then be sure to stop back two weeks from now on February 22, 2018 to listen to our next full length episode. You can leave a comment on this page and can always reach us via email at: feedback@tvhistorypod.com
