It’s game time on the latest ‘Cup of Joe.’

Imagine you’re a performer, and every week you step on the stage – with no idea what’s going to happen. That’s the reality for the cast of NPR’s popular radio show Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.

It’s billed as a ‘news quiz show’ but it’s a lot more than that. Host Peter Sagal and announcer Bill Kurtis are joined by a rotating panel of celebrity guests. Using headlines and humor, Sagal leads the cast – and callers - through a series of games that test their knowledge of what happened in the world over the last week.
