The NPR News Quiz!

Ask me anything   I couldn't find an official page (but there's one now!), so this is the unofficial Tumblr for NPR's news quiz, "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me!" I'm not affiliated with the show, NPR, WBEZ, or anyone else you might think I am; this page is simply a labor of fun. Of course, if the folks up in Chicago decide they're willing to give me money for something I'm already doing for free, then I'd be okay with that.

"I never consider what I do as work. It has been fun, it’s been rewarding, and very fulfilling. … I love my work. It’s been good to me," Kasell says.

Can we all agree that Carl Kasell’s grumpy face is the best part of OK Go’s Tiny Desk Concert?

Broadcasting legend Carl Kasell just announced that he’s retiring from Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me this spring and we’re still sure this GIF set is one for the books. We’re all gonna miss you, Carl!

We imagined a world where NPR was no longer funded by our listeners, and the results were twice as frightening as that episode of The Twilight Zone where Burgess Meredith sits on his eyeglasses. TWICE AS FRIGHTENING!

Our guest this week is the amazing Jeff Garlin, who, oddly, pre-scripted his entire appearance.

I personally think The Usual Suspects would have been infinitely better if every character had been played by a pie. But, really, I think that about every movie.

We also got a brief, terrifying shout out on The Colbert Report. Fortunately for us, we’re not worth buying out. That said, how much could a lifetime supply of gummi bears cost, really?
