NPR’s Ask Me Another is a lively hour of puzzles, word games, and trivia played in front of (and with) a live audience. Ask Me Another’s entertaining melange of brainteasers and fun is a descendant of Weekend Edition Sunday’s Puzzle Segment with Will Shortz, but infused with the vibrancy and quick wit of Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me.
So you think you’re a TV buff. But how well do you know shows by their episode titles? Contestants are put to some pop culture challenges, like deciphering breakfast cereal haikus and a remixed nursery rhyme. Plus, our V.I.P. this week is a certain brainiac who shares a few of his favorite apocalyptic prophesies.
