Happy day-after-Thanksgiving from The Takeaway!
Today, we’re doing things a little differently. Your comments on our stories come pouring in every day, and often times you have stories of your own. So today we hear from you—and only you. The Takeaway producers have worked for over a month to curate some of your most compelling stories from the past year. You’ll hear them today.
Take a listen and meet Anil, Kate, Mimi, Jeff, Mindy and Lou, and Buddah.
We’ll hear about an unlikely caregiver, a lesbian’s complicated religious path, a slug-turned-avid-cyclist, a refused rejection letter, a reignited romance, and a young boy’s search for his father on a blue and white Huffy bike.

This Thanksgiving The Takeaway brings you some great conversations from the last year and an hour of pioneering female voices.
First, a conversation between Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and our host John Hockenberry offers an insight into the incredible career of Justice Ginsburg.
Next you will hear from Robin Steinberg, founder and director of The Bronx Defenders, which assists criminal defendants with no other access to lawyers.
"Orange Is The New Black" star Laverne Cox will join us to talk about her role on the breakout success show about a women’s prison and how that ties into her own transgender identity.
Have you ever had difficulty balancing work and family life? We at The Takeaway certainly have, and we sat down with Anne Desjardins, a single working mother of three who sheds some light on managing careers and kids.
Seinfeld star Julia Louis Dreyfus talks with John Hockenberry about her role as Vice President Selina Meyer on the popular TV show "Veep."
Finally, a woman caring for a spouse on the verge of death reflects on the final stages of life. Peggy Battin talked to us about supporting a dying loved one and her advocacy for a patients’ right to end their own lives.
As always, we here at The Takeaway are so thankful for you—our listeners—and wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving day.
