He may be the only man in history who has quizzed Salman Rushdie about PEZ dispensers and asked former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright about weightlifting and Playboy magazine. Peter Sagal, host of NPR's quiz show "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!," joins us to discuss his storied career as public radio host, long-distance runner, author of a book on vices and extra in a Michael Jackson video. He reflects on some of his favorite quiz show moments and what life is like now that longtime scorekeeper Carl Kasell has retired.

Host: Michael Krasny
