On Tuesday’s show: We visit several polling places around Greater Houston to get a picture of Election Day 2020.

Also this hour: We discuss the significance of this heated Presidential election and how it compares to other ones during trying times in our nation’s history.

Then, since we all might be doing some emotional eating as we watch election returns tonight, local food writers discuss their favorite places for comfort food in this month’s installment of The Full Menu.

And a new book called Mayflower Chronicles by Houston writer Kathy Haueisen — who's a direct descendant of one of the Mayflower pilgrims – illustrates what we often get wrong about the history of Thanksgiving.
