Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me! is currently one of my favorite radio shows. Alex probably introduced me to it, as it airs on NPR and she is a public boradcasting junkie. The show, more eventful and definitely more hilarious than other broadcasts, is a weekly news quiz where callers dial in and are asked questions about the past week's events. There is, in addition, a great prize if the caller answers his questions correctly: Carl Kasell's coveted voice on your voice mail/answering machine message.
While the show airs at 11 every Saturday morning, I wait so patiently for Saturday night to roll around so I can download their podcast onto my ipod and fall asleep laughing, because I never wake up early enough to catch the whole program. Tune in if you aren't doing anything.
I googled Carl Kasell and the profile picture on his facebook fan page is of him with "I'm in ur machine, answerin ur calls" written Lolcats style. Classic.
