Hunger in New York City | Giving Thanks: Our Takeaway | Brooklyn with Reggie Watts | Adam Gopnik on the Meaning of Food | Consider the Fork: A Food Writer's Cultural History | Election Season Was a Comedy Gold Mine for SNL Writer Seth Meyers
With residents of the Northeast still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and Americans everywhere trying to move on from yet another bitter and divisive election, host John Hockenberry shares his Thanksgiving reflections on inequality.
This summer, the Takeaway embarked on a virtual, coast to coast road trip to some of the country's greatest music cities. Our tour guides included some of the most popular recording artists and experts from each town. We kicked things off with musician and comedian Reggie Watts in the great music mecca of Brooklyn, New York.
Food is on all of our minds today, but how often do we really think about food? For Adam Gopnik, the answer is always. His latest book is "The Table Comes First: Family, France, and the Meaning of Food."
In honor of Thanksgiving, Bee Wilson asks us to "Consider the Fork." Wilson is the author of a book by the same title, and she explains how our relationship with food is emotional, primal, familial, and cultural.
Seth Meyers is Saturday Night Live's head writer and host of the show's Weekend Update segment. He explores the comedy behind the 2012 presidential election, and explains why Sarah Palin was a once-in-a-lifetime comedy gold mine.
