Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

Schedule

Saturday 11:00 AM to Noon and Sunday 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on WUSF 89.7

This is a wacky and whip-smart approach to the week's news and newsmakers in the form of an 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.
