National Public Radio, the more I like it. And one of my favourite programs (as I may have mentioned) is Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! Normally, the show is taped in Chicago, but occasionally, they travel to other cities. Such was the case last night at Kingsbury Hall on the U of U campus, for which John, Ryan, Brian, and I were in attendance.
You might think watching a crew tape a radio show would be boring, but it was quite the opposite. The three panelists featured were my favourites, Mo Rocca, Paula Poundstone, and Tom Bodett. The celebrity guest featured on "Not My Job" was Utah's own Donny Osmond. And seeing Carl Kasell and Peter Sagal in person was great. I've rarely laughed that much in my life.
The whole taping took over two hours, and it's amazing how they edit it down to a 45 minute show. If you'd like to listen, and I think you should, check your local NPR station for when they'll broadcast it this weekend. Or, you can always download the podcast on the website or via iTunes anytime after Sunday. Trust me. You'll be glad you did.
