One of the ladies involved with the Affluenza special, now has a TV Show on PBS called Simple Living. A recently broadcast
episode from season 3, shows a little bit of the Masters Hotel in Burr Oak, Iowa and talks about reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books. Find episode descriptions and a way to buy DVDs on http://www.simplelivingtv.net . It isn’t available as a single episode, but it is included in the season 3 set.
UPDATE: Unfortunately for Simple Living‘s host and creator Wanda Urbanska, people didn’t really take to the show and it only lasted one more season after the one that included the quick Burr Oak tour. Find a short description and episode list here:
Her website is now dead, but the TV Guide website has a deal with Hulu so for now anyway (in April 2014) you can watch the episode for free. Click here to watch it. I did buy Season 3 on DVD before her site closed down. I doubt you can still find new copies, but if you’d like one of your own keep an eye out on used book/DVD sites.
