Episode 34: Turkey, Thanksgiving, and Baker is Dangerous

It’s beginning to look at a lot like…Thanksgiving!

For episode 34, we centered our focus on Thanksgiving, starting off with our top five favorite Thanksgiving dinner dishes. After that tasty discussion, we jumped right into our Poll of the Week, where we asked our listeners if they prefer their turkey deep-fried or oven-roasted. We wrap up the turkey talk with a chat about what makes Thanksgiving special to us and what traditions mean the most to us.

After that, we talk about that impressive win the Browns had over the Falcons. Baker was impressive, and gave Cleveland a rally call of sorts when he described himself as “dangerous”. We chat about his impact on the team and how much more disciplined the Browns are now that Hue Jackson is gone.

We conclude the episode with a preview of several holiday-themed events, including Winterfest, The Cleveland Flea’s “Friendsgiving” event, and more.
