Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! for August 13, 2017
11:30 AM - 12:25 PM
[Program Website]

Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! is NPR's weekly hour-long quiz program. Each week on the radio you can test your knowledge against some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment world while figuring out what's real news and what's made up. On the Web, you can play along too.

It takes more than a couple brain cells to make this show what it is... so let's give credit where credit's due.

Peter Sagal -- Host
Prior to becoming host of Wait Wait in 1998, Peter had a varied career including stints as a playwright, screenwriter, stage director, actor, extra in a Michael Jackson video, travel writer, essayist, ghostwriter and staff writer for a motorcycle magazine. He lives in the Chicago area with his family, and is working on a book titled The Big Book of Vices, about how people -- other people, of course -- misbehave. Since he now has his own Web site, he is finally a real boy.

Carl Kasell -- Official Judge and Scorekeeper
Carl Kasell is an all-around genius and great guy. He has also been a newscaster for NPR's daily newsmagazine Morning Edition since its inception in 1979. His newscasts on Morning Edition can be heard at the top of the hour, every weekday morning on public radio stations nationwide. A veteran broadcaster, Kasell launched his radio career more than 50 years ago. He sometimes moonlights as a magician.
