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.
If you love playing around with palindromes, quoting Downton Abbey’s Dowager Countess, and spotting factual errors in the news (Editor’s note: ‘What factual errors?’), then this episode will make you so happy, you’ll want to clap your hands. Plus, this week’s hilarious Mystery Guest has some advice for the Area Man or Woman in all of us.
