It’s Thanksgiving week, and Al is back in the studio with us. We’ve got a great grab bag of news for you, including:

All sorts of silly articles from LDS Living, like an assembly of Thanksgiving GIFs that only Mormons would understand even though they are super generic, or a strange obsession with an LDS family’s Family Feud appearance, or new visitor center presidents.

In important simian news, a man dressed as a gorilla is terrorizing apartments at BYU-Idaho. This is serious business, folks.

BYU-Idaho also hired its first female vice president mere decades after its founding. The progressive movement is in full force in Rexburg.

At the other BYU that’s not in Hawaii, some students recorded interviews about the black experience on campus. It’s pretty interesting. Watch it below.

The Friend magazine is getting some new features for 2017. Find out more right here.

Remember Elder Holland’s great talk in October 2016 General Conference about home teaching where he told the story of a father who accidentally killed his son and was comforted by a home teacher? Our buddies at LeadingLDS interviewed the father and the home teacher. Compelling stuff.

Other news: Triple combination in Croatian, family history coloring book, no more lesson calendar features on LDS.org, Hartford Temple dedication, and Geoff slipping into a depression.
