Happy Thanksgiving from The Takeaway! Whether you're travelling, prepping a meal, or spending the day with family and friends, we're here to say thank you and wish you a great holiday.

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?
