Episode Summary

Old Friends, Good Food & Football
Thanksgiving is all about friends, food and, of course, football. Our special Thanksgiving broadcast will be devoted to all three.

For 25 years, Bob Edwards was there with millions of Americans as they sat in traffic during the morning rush hour, as the anchor of National Public Radio's "Morning Edition." Tucker catches up with Edwards in our First Up segment, who now works for XM Satellite Radio, in a wide-ranging interview. Edwards discusses leaving NPR and the state of public radio today, criticizes television host Larry King for being "lazy," and argues that conservatives have been lying about liberal media bias.

Ann Amernick is considered one of the country's top pastry chefs (top 10 in trade journals Pastry Art and Design and Chocolatier Magazine). The owner of Washington D.C.'s Palena restaurant, Amernick invited Tucker into her kitchen to make pumpkin pie and to talk about desserts, sex, and being a pastry chef in a carb-obsessed nation. This segment will replace our Plus 2 panel discussion this week.

It's hard to imagine Thanksgiving without football. And a new book by Warren St. John illuminates the passions of a particular (and peculiar) group of fanatics - the supporters of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. Tucker interviews St. John about his book, Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer, and about the unique rituals and bizarre behavior of football's most loyal fans.moreless
