TRN Podcast is giving thanks with our Thanksgiving Traditions inside our Time Machine segment this week! We will be giving our personal take on the holiday from the time we were kids until now. We’ll also discuss favorite foods, our can’t miss movies/TV specials, Black Friday, and much more. Plus, we’ll also read your social media feedback on the Thanksgiving holiday.
