Ask Me Another
Ask me Another blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music played in front of a live audience. The show is a co-production of NPR and WNYC.
On the 1st day of bonuses, Ask Me Another gave to me: Jonathan Coulton's song of glo-wing glo-ry.
Sing a comical rendition of "Deck The Halls" and learn about quirky holiday traditions from around the world with writer A.J. Jacobs, The Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead and comedian John Hodgman.
Sing along in a round with Jonathan Coulton and Oscar-winning Frozen songwriters Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. Happy holidays! In other news, you just learned what a ha'penny is. Because you heard it in the song, and Googled it. You're welcome.
Hear the full 2014 Holiday Spectacular episode on iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn and askmeanother.npr.org.
This show's stuffed tighter than a Christmas turkey, with festive food trivia, song parodies and reindeer games galore. Plus Frozen's composers take on a Mariah Carey classic (you know the one).
