Ask Me Another

Saturdays at 10 a.m. on 91.3
  • Hosted by Ophira Eisenberg

Puzzlemaster Will Shortz and Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! host Peter Sagal walk into a bar... No, it's not the start of a joke. It's the essence of Ask Me Another, a rambunctious hour that blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites in-studio guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones, and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from house musician Jonathan Coulton.

Before Or After?

Ask Me Another premiered on May 4, 2012, and wouldn't ya know it, things have happened in those nine years since! Oscar Award-winning composers Robert and Kristen Anderson Lopez guess if certain events occurred before Ask Me Another premiered or after. Sounds simple enough! Plus, there's no way our perception of time is in any way warped by this past year and a half...

TV Adaptation Theme Songs

Sep 17, 2021

Oscar Award-winning composers Robert and Kristen Anderson Lopez are the geniuses behind that WandaVision song "Agatha All Along," for which the world is forever indebted to them. So, it was only right to give them a chance to show off their TV theme song chops! In this music parody game, the lyrics of older TV theme songs were changed to make them about recent TV series, based on books. Step aside Marvel, there's a new "most ambitious crossover event in history."

That's How I Midroll

Sep 17, 2021

On TV, they're called "commercials." But on podcasts, they're called "midrolls." In this game, Welcome to Night Vale's Cecil Baldwin and guest house musician Julian Velard are read ads for companies that famously advertise on podcasts. The twist is— the person who wrote these midrolls has done no research into the companies... instead, they've given it their best guess based solely on the company's name. It's not lazy if it's on purpose!
