Ask Me Another blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music into a rambunctious hour-long show. Play along as Host Ophira Eisenberg invites in-studio guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones, and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from 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.More from Ask Me Another »
'Til Death Metal Do Us Part

A Primate Example
(Rebroadcast) Brush up on your British slang with Andy Serkis (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Lord of the Rings), who talks about getting into the mind of Caesar the ape, reveals the origin of Gollum's creepy voice, and teases us ever-so-slightly about his upcoming role in Star Wars VII.
Stark Raving Mad
What do you think is "the worst"? Let comedian and top-notch ranter Lewis Black (The Daily Show) tell you what he thinks is the worst, from child beauty pageants to soy lattes to Donald Trump. Plus, sing pop songs with the grammatical tendencies of Cookie Monster, and a certain R. Kelly hit becomes "Me Believe Me Can Fly."
