If you don’t listen to NPR, you’re missing some great programming. They have a lot of fun quiz and talk shows on the weekends especially. One of my favorites is Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me hosted by Peter Sagal. It’s a quiz show where real stories from the week’s news are mixed in with fake stories and an odd collection of “kind of celebrities” try to pick out the real stories. There’s more to it than that, but that’s basically the gist. Stephen King was recently a quest on the show. This is NPR describes his interview:
Author Stephen King plays a game called, “You’re the Warmest, Fluffiest, Most Unthreatening Friend Ever.” Three questions about nice things to ask the man who has scared us out of our wits for decades.
I think it’s one of King’s best appearances. Here’s the clip: Stephen King on Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me.
