Product Description

Billy Collins, U.S. poet laureate from 2001 to 2003, plays a game called, “I can feel it coming in the air tonight,” in which he responds to questions about musician Phil Collins. Al Gore tries to match his former boss’ mastery of the My Little Pony children’s show in a game called “Maybe you can beat Bill Clinton at this.” Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee rhymes with “cursy,” so she is invited to play a game called “May Thunder Blast Your Head!” about curses from around the world. Of course. Also featuring Eryka Badu, Tony Danza, Jack Gantos, and Jeff Garlin

Panelists Alonzo Bodden, Tom Bodett, Brian Babylon, Luke Burbank, Amy Dickinson, Adam Felber, Peter Grosz, Kyrie O’Connor, P.J. O’Rourke, Paula Poundstone, Roxanne Roberts, Mo Rocca, and Faith Salie offer plenty of comic highlights as host Peter Sagal and “official scorekeeper” Carl Kasell guide their esteemed guests through unpredictable moments under the intense heat of public radio’s glorious spotlight.
