Ask Me Another

Saturday at 11 a.m.
  • 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.

Heard on Diane Guerrero: Most Likely To Be Superlative.

Actor Diane Guerrero already had a lot on her plate in 2014, with roles in Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin. That's when Guerrero wrote an op-ed that appeared in The Los Angeles Times, telling a story she hadn't told publicly before.

She wrote, "My real story is this: I am the citizen daughter of immigrant parents who were deported when I was 14. My older brother was also deported."
