Trying to avoid uncomfortable Thanksgiving conversations? Here are some pop culture topics to share

It’s officially Thanksgiving week.

That might mean you have your turkey defrosting in your bathtub, and it also might mean that you’re getting more and more nervous about trying to navigate the complicated conversational landscape at your Thanksgiving table. 

If you’re not exactly looking forward to trying to keep conversation going with a broad cross-section of extended family and friends — maybe even coworkers and neighbors — without things getting ugly, Amanda Kehrberg is here to help. 

Kehrberg studies digital culture as a PhD student at Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

She joined The Show to offer some ideas about pop culture topics that we can all relate to this year.
