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.

KURTIS: And Here is your host at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, Pa., Peter Sagal.

There was a saying in Philadelphia in the 1970s: "Only the Lord saves more than Bernie Parent." The legendary goaltender won two consecutive Stanley Cups with the Flyers, and is now a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

We have no doubt that Parent understands all the intricacies of hockey rule known as "icing." But what about the kind of icing you put on a cake?
