Trivia Is The New Black

Our V.I.P. this week is Piper Kerman, author of the memoir-turned-TV series Orange is the New Black: My Year In A Women's Prison. Plus, two Mystery Science Theater 3000 veterans riff on bad movies.

In this week's show, recorded at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota, play games about famous sets of twins, grammatically-incorrect song lyrics—and did you know that James Bond also has a "license to grill"? Pun alert! Our V.I.P. is the woman who helped add 13 hours of marathon-watching to our schedules: Piper Kerman. She's the author of Orange is the New Black, the memoir that inspired the hit Netflix series about life in a women's prison. Plus, two Mystery Science Theater 3000 veterans riff on bad movies.
