Today's special Thanksgiving episode features some of the best Takeaway moments heard on the airwaves this year. We look at the science behind home-cooking, we chat with Toni Tyson, the mother of celebrity astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and actor Jason Schwartzman stops by to improvise. We jump in to the history of a Thanksgiving staple (the apple), we explore the rise of red lipstick, and a new record that re-imagines The Beatles for a new generation. What are you thankful for?
