Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

Saturdays at 10:00am on RADIO IQ. Saturdays at 11:00 am and Sundays at 10:00am on WVTF.
  • Hosted by Peter Sagal

For a wacky and whip-smart approach to the week's news and newsmakers, listen no further than Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, the oddly informative news quiz from NPR.

During each fast-paced, irreverent show, host Peter Sagal leads what might be characterized as the news Olympics. Callers, panelists, and guests compete by answering questions about the week's events, identifying impersonations, filling in the blanks at lightening speed, sniffing out fake news items, and deciphering limericks.

Listeners vie for a chance to win the most coveted prize in radio: having official judge and scorekeeper Carl Kasell record the outgoing message on their home answering machine.

Julián Castro went from being the youngest member of San Antonio's city council, to mayor of San Antonio, to U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

Castro may know a lot about urban development, but what does he know about Urban Dictionary? We'll ask him three questions about the infamous online slang glossary.

Click the Play link above to find out how he does.
