Ask Me Another

Saturdays at 11am
  • Hosted by Ophira Eisenberg

Ask Me Another is the rambunctious live show from NPR and WNYC that blends brainteasers, pub trivia, comedy and music into an hour of mind-bending fun. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones and be serenaded by house musician Jonathan Coulton. What you'll hear resembles the casual intimacy of game night at a friend's house: one where scores are forgotten in favor of hilarious gaffes.

Every week on your radio or podcast, you can play along as Ophira poses questions to willing audience members and call-in contestants, Jonathan sings clues to the tune of pop songs and the resident puzzle guru attempts to keep everyone in line. Each week a new celebrity V.I.P.–that's Very Important Puzzler–dazzles from the puzzle hot seat in a custom-built game.

Are you game for NPR's guiltiest and most puzzling pleasure? To become a contestant, email askmeanother@npr.org. You never know — you just might wind up playing a game with your favorite celebrity.

Ask Me Another is recorded in front of a live audience at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY, and on the road in your city. To attend a taping, visit amatickets.org.

OPHIRA EISENBERG, HOST:

Two weeks before Kickstarter launched in 2009, Jill Sobule released her own crowdfunded record, California Years. Sobule began her fundraising efforts a year before the crowdfunding behemoth came into existence. She told Ophira Eisenberg, host of NPR's Ask Me Another, that Kickstarter's founders even contacted her to gain insight on the crowdfunding process: "What an idiot! Why didn't I think of making it as a business?" she said.
