        the veggies, alway the best, I make minimum of 5 veggies every thanksgiving, usually 10 or so. But I am a big veggie eater. HOT take but turkey is not the best, I make a mean turkey, I love the turkey and I always try to mix yummy and traditional but every side is always better then the turkey. Turkey is just impressive looking (and tasting) but its never the thing I have the most pride in. It's easier then anyone thinks but a good veggie thats balanced involves a lot more thought and theres more room for creative expression. P.S. I have heard that turkey is not the most traditional meat for thanksgiving and the trend of turkey and even celebrating thanksgiving on a main stream level is fairly recent in our country's history, so when its just my immediate family I do goose, quail, venison or another game and when i do the turkey I try to chose wild. Ive worked in kitchens for many years now so my family is used to my turkey speil, probably a bit sick of it.

    34. James Dooling

      Brad took one for the food nerds here. Cheers!

    35. Fisho D

      25:22 - yes Sean, because usually the hosts pat your back and compliment you on every single episode for having deep research, or good sauces, or how insightful you are, or in general how much of a beast with spicy food you are. :D

    36. Julianna DeHerrera

      Keep it up I love hot shit I like seeing you do what you do man.

    37. Saschia Dybdahl

      I feel lost without the screen edit “wourder” every time Brad says wourder.

    38. Regretted Bear

      "a joint?"

    39. Christie Berkey

      I grew up in Sussex and ended up in the ER after visiting Action Park. I heard that same story about the tube!

    49. Dru Owen

      I was in the middle of saying you can tell dude isn't from the south when he says Mac and Cheese doesn't scream Thanksgiving when he said "and all that southern shit I don't like". Lol Bro, it's THE side of Thanksgiving in the Southeast.

    50. tangy

    57. Alix Night

      Please do Robert Pattinson. I just saw his Seth Meyer's interview (so confused) and I just want Sean to ask him good clarifying questions. He seems like he'd have a very interesting perspective on acting and life
