A Podcast About Love and Life in Newport, RI

In this episode, Buck and Helena talk about the origins of Thanksgiving, and how Abraham Lincoln made it an official American holiday in order to “heal the wounds of our nation.” How can we use this holiday to heal our own wounds? Oh, and don’t miss Buck telling the story of how, in order to have a more intimate Thanksgiving dinner, he raised and killed a turkey with his bare hands. Ack! Plus, we dine and dish about a new restaurant in Bristol, Rhode Island called Statesman Tavern. Listen in!

THAT NEWPORT SHOW is a weekly podcast sharing the stories and characters that make Newport, Rhode IslandAmerica’s favorite city by the sea.

With each episode, hosts Buck & Helena share their Newport experiences in segments like Dine & Dish, Adventure Island, and Shop Newport.

blackandwhiteBuck and Helena are a couple of old punks who survived what they call “the toddler years” (plus a few extra). As they slowly regain their sanity, this smart and silly couple are once again venturing out into the world to get their party on. They may be a bit slower these days, but they are also a lot wiser. And honestly, a lot more fun. Read more about your hosts.

While That Newport Show features a lot of what Newport has to offer both visitors and residents, the essence of show is about two grown-ups who really have no business being grown-ups, and the things they get up to in Newport – as well as at home on their small New England horse farm.

Every Thursday the Sparkle and Boom Podcast Network airs a new episode. You can stream or download episodes from our website, or listen on iTunes, GooglePlayStitcher Radio, or your favorite podcatcher app.  We hope you’ll join us!
