We're just a few days away from Thanksgiving and our annual Turkey Confidential live call-in show. This year's show will be very special to us because it's the last year Lynne Rossetto Kasper will be in the host seat for the event. After more than 20 years of hosting The Splendid Table -- including many years of soothing panicked nerves in Thanksgiving kitchens across the country -- Lynne is set to retire at the end of 2017.

She joined Brian Oake and Jill Riley, hosts of The Current's Oake & Riley in the Morning, to talk about tag-teaming Turkey Confidential with host and friend Francis Lam, playing the "Thanksgiving lifeguard," and overcoming the most classic of Thanksgiving disasters. Listen to full interview with the audio player.

Join Lynne and Francis for Turkey Confidential on Thursday, Thursday, November 23, 2017 from 12-2 p.m. Eastern. They'll also be joined by special guests -- chefs/restaurateurs Lidia Bastianich and Marcus Samuelsson, comedian/actor Amy Sedaris from At Home with Amy Sedaris, and Dan Souza, editor-in-chief of Cook's Illustrated for America's Test Kitchen.
