  4. Dear Dr. Sagal,

    For the sake of comedy, which presidential term was your favorite to cover?

    Also, when are you and the rest of Wait Wait coming to Montana? This place is a barren wasteland of humorless northerners, please send help.

  5. When you’re researching all the info for the show, which segment’s info consistently surprises you the most or teaches you the most new things?

  6. If you and Carl Kassel switched roles for one episode, which segment would you most look forward to doing?

    By Jamie Fox-Canning - November 22nd, 2011 12:24 pm
  7. If Carl Kassel ever retires from doing Wait Wait (but I hope he doesn’t), do you think the show would survive (and if it did, who do you think would take over his job)?

    More generally, how will public radio (and our favorite programs) handle the death/retirement/loss of their hosts? What NPR programs do you think are most susceptible to “loss of talent” in the near future?

  14. Is Feed Dump impinging on your reporting of wacky news?

  15. Peter,

    I spent several weeks calling in to the show’s number every week hoping to get on, but never heard back from you guys. Is there a best time to call in, or certain things to say that make one more or less likely to actually get on the show? For instance, would asking the host about it in a call-in appearance on an internet charity telethon hurt? (Note: if the answer is yes, please forget I asked.)

  16. Are you sad that you never get to have your voice be anyone’s answering machine message?
