So if you're listening to this program while doing some Thanksgiving prep in the kitchen, you might want to turn it up because I am about to introduce you to a potentially life-altering trick. This is called the garlic trick. Now, if, like me, you cook with lots of garlic, then you know it can sometimes be a pain. You'd smash the clove, but you still have to peel off the skin. And it's time-consuming, and it gets your fingers really stinky. Well, your garlic nightmare is about to end.
This Friday is the National Day of Listening – an unofficial holiday – where you are encouraged to set aside time and record the stories of your family and friends. KUNC’s Brian Larson spoke to the Day of Listening founder David Isay about why the act of listening is so important.
