Kristen Meinzer is the producer of The Sporkful podcast, culture producer for The Takeaway, and co-host of The Takeaway's Movie Date podcast.
Home is where you hang your hat. There's no place like it, or so we're told. But what exactly is home? Is it a place? A state of mind? A smell, sound or look? Or the presence of a person we love?
During the week of Thanksgiving, we'll be exploring the notion of home each day. We'll look at the details that matter: from the specific structural aspects of a home to our ideas of what constitutes a homeland. And we'll be talking with people across the United States (and maybe even outside it).
John and Celeste will also share their personal memories of home, and what the word home means to them.
Tell us: What says 'home' to you? What are the details that make a place look like, smell like, or sound like home to you? Is home a place you long for, or do you carry it with you? Is there something that makes you love or dread the thought of going home for the holidays?
This is the latest assignment with The Takeaway iPhone app. Take a photo of the things that make a place home to you. Record audio of the sounds. And take video of the events that make it that way.
If you don't have an iPhone, just submit the photo below. If you do, get the app.
