Plus, Biz has an exciting "mom moment," Theresa is still in the darkness, and we chat with the charming and talented Amy Helm about her beautiful new solo album while she sits in the school parking lot waiting to pick up her kids!

Hello Buddies! We just wanted to say how thankful we are that aren't hunting us on a tropical island in what some might call "a very dangerous game". Have you given much thought to what you would do in that scenario? How would you avoid being tracked? Would you stay in one place or stay on the move? Which celebrity would be most satisfying to hunt? What if you found yourself in a Battle Royale/Hunger Games situation? How would that change your plans? In the second half of today's ep, how to survive Thanksgiving! We suggest a few party games, tips to get out of dangerous conversations and generally how to keep your holidays happy! Thanks for stopping by buddies!
