Ask Me Another

SATURDAY 11 AM-12 PM, (& SUNDAY 12PM- 1PM on HD4)
  • Hosted by Ophira Eisenberg

Ask Me Another is a rambunctious live show that blends puzzles, 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.

Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Aug 12, 2016

We took the Tears for Fears hit "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" and rewrote it to be about power-hungry fictional characters and organizations. You might think you're trivia royalty, but don't let the power go to your head.

The Long And The Short Of It

'E' is the most commonly-used letter in the English language, but you can never have too much of a good thing. In this game, contestants insert the letter 'E' into a common phrase to turn it into a completely different phrase. For example, if we said, "After an hour of Soulcycle, I learned a lot about the bones in my back," you would answer, "SPINE class."
