Ask Me Another
Saturdays at 11am

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.
