Each week, 2 million listeners tune into Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, the hour-long news quiz
from NPR and Chicago Public Radio. They test their knowledge of the week's dumbest news against
some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment world. Host Peter Sagal and
scorekeeper (and veteran NPR newscaster) Carl Kasell join panelists including author and humorist
Roy Blount Jr., Washington Post columnist Roxanne Roberts, Boston Globe writer Charlie Pierce,
and comedian Paula Poundstone.
Always a high point of the show, the "Not My Job!" segment features a celebrity guest who must
answer three questions on a topic totally outside his or her area of expertise. Nice guy Tom Hanks
is asked about Hollywood's biggest louts. Magician Penn Jillette can't escape three questions about
Ben Franklin. Jeopardy Grand Champion Ken Jennings is almost (but not quite) stumped by "What in
the world does Ken Jennings not know?" And Barack Obama, Democratic Senator from Illinois, takes
the floor for three questions about the superstitions of Baseball Hall of Famer Wade Boggs.
Disc 1: Barack Obama - Terry Gross - Major Robert Bateman - Lee Smith - Harold Ramis - Penn Jillette.
Disc 2: Janeane Garofalo - Brian Williams - Ken Jennings - Sarah Silverman - Tom Hanks - Tom & Ray Magliozzi.
