10:00 amWait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

Peter Sagal
For a wacky and whip-smart approach to the week's news and newsmakers, listen no further than Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me!, the oddly informative news quiz from NPR.

During each fast-paced, irreverent show, host Peter Sagal leads what might be characterized as the news Olympics. Callers, panelists, and guests compete by answering questions about the week's events, identifying impersonations, filling in the blanks at lightening speed, sniffing out fake news items, and deciphering limericks.

6:00 pmThis American Life
Program Logo
Ira Glass
Built around the innovative personal vision of host Ira Glass, "This American Life," quite literally, pioneered a new kind of radio storytelling. The weekly program explores a theme fiascos, conventions, the job that takes over your life through a playful mix of radio monologues, mini-documentaries, "found tape," short fiction and unusual music. The stories presented are engaging, intimate, surprising, funny, disturbing, bittersweet. Glass and his staff have an unusual knack for finding writers and performers whose work hasn't been heard on radio, and producing their stories alongside his own disarming commentary in a way that listeners praise as "riveting," "mesmerizing."
7:00 pmSnap Judgment

Glynn Washington
Snap Judgment tells intriguing stories about extraordinary and defining events in people's lives. The program's raw, intimate, and musical brand of storytelling dares listeners to see a sliver of the world through another's eye. Snap Judgment host Glynn Washington takes listeners on a narrative journey - leaping from one person's frying pan into another person's fire. Deejay-driven musical delivery, paired with lush sound design, drops listeners into the very heart of what matters. Snap Judgment's fast-paced (sometimes dark, sometimes playful) narrative highlights people from across the globe who put everything on the line. Glynn Washington explains, "It's storytelling... with a beat."

Jad Abumrad, Robert Krulwich
Radiolab is an experiential investigation that explores themes and ideas through a patchwork of people, sounds, and stories. In each episode, Radiolab experiments with sound and style allowing science to fuse with culture, and information to sound like music.

Hosted by Jad Abumrad with co-host Robert Krulwich, Radiolab is designed for listeners who demand skepticism but appreciate wonder; who are curious about the world, but also want to be moved and surprised. Radiolab won a Peabody Award in 2011.

11:00 pmLe Show

Harry Shearer
For over twenty years, audiences have been enjoying Shearer's gift for satire and sketch material on Le Show which got its start in 1983. It ran under various titles before Le Show was selected through the results of a listener contest. Harry, known for his voice work on The Simpsons, writes the sketches and performs all the voices as he romps through the worlds of media, politics, sports and show business while providing an eclectic array of music along the way.
