Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

Saturdays at 10 a.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m.
  • Hosted by Peter Sagal

Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! is NPR's weekly hour-long quiz program. Each week on the radio you can test your knowledge against some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment world while figuring out what's real news and what's made up. On the Web, you can play along too.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

You've seen Anthony Anderson on TV and in movies. He hosts the new version of "To Tell The Truth," and he's the father on ABC's award-winning comedy "Black-ish."

BILL KURTIS: Anthony joined us in August, and Peter asked him about joining the long list of beloved TV dads.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

So if you face classical music and turn 180 degrees, you'll be looking at Steve Earle, a country music singer-songwriter who doesn't really fit the Nashville stereotype.

BILL KURTIS: Steve came to Chicago last spring, and Peter asked him if he considers himself a country musician.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED NPR BROADCAST)

STEVE EARLE: I've been called country singer, country rock singer and folk singer in The New York Times crossword puzzle. So I think I qualify...

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Oh, really?

PETER GROSZ: Wow.

BILL KURTIS: From NPR and WBEZ Chicago, this is WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME, the NPR news quiz. I'm Bill Kurtis. Here is your host at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, Peter Sagal.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Thank you, Bill.

(CHEERING)

SAGAL: In just a few days, 2019 will be a distant memory. And we'll look back and laugh at all the money we spent of things like oat milk and CBD underpants.

(LAUGHTER)

KURTIS: In 2020, I'm looking forward to oat milk underpants.
