Whether you're listening in the kitchen or on the road “Giving Thanks” provides the warmth of great music and memorable words.
Turkey Confidential is a live, two-hour, call-in program on Thanksgiving Day from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. for public radio listeners across the nation.
Host Lynne Rossetto Kasper comes to the rescue of Thanksgiving cooks, kitchen helpers, and dinner guests alike on the biggest cooking day of the year.
A Thanksgiving morning tradition, Lynne answers listener questions throughout this live, two-hour program. Previous "Turkey Confidential" specials have included everything from a cross-country trucker cooking his Thanksgiving dinner on the manifold to a panicked first-time cook who didn't realize a turkey needs to be thawed. Lynne handles all questions with wit, expertise and laughter.
Two days after Nora McInerny's husband Aaron died, she celebrated Thanksgiving with her family. Well ... maybe not "celebrated". Actually, why would you do that? Try to be normal when clearly everything isn't?
But every year millions of people do the same thing during the Holidays. This special features conversations with Lucy Kalinithi and Amber Tozer, and some of the women of the Hot Young Widows Club on the challenges of dealing with trauma and loss during this sensitive season. Plus, stories of people's worst Holidays ever. That's for real. Worst. Ever.
