ASK, DON'T TELL
Fans of “Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!,” NPR’s addictive comic news trivia show, now have a new game to add to their podcasts, and this one tapes right here in New York. Ask Me Another challenges select audience members in word and number puzzles, like doing the math of the Beatles + the Jacksons (9), or figuring out whether “heeljack” is a cheese, a dance move, or a Moby-Dick character. (It’s a dance.) The winners get a personal theme song composed by geek-science troubadour Jonathan Coulton. Comic Ophira Eisenberg hosts, and mystery guests—David Cross was on the pilot—stop by each show, which tapes almost weekly now through April.
