This weekend’s Bluff the Listener on ‘Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!’ put a Dartmouth medical student to the test

The March 24 episode of the NPR show featured “Megan calling from Hanover, N.H.,” and host Peter Sagal correctly guessed that she had a Dartmouth connection!

[Also I know, I know, I know, dear Dartmouth community … Peter called it a university (!), BUT CUT THE MAN SOME SLACK, THIS THING IS TAPED IN FRONT OF A LIVE AUDIENCE OK]

I won’t give anything away on how Megan did, but you can listen/read at the links above. AND ALSO IF YOU’RE HERE, MEGAN FROM HANOVER, YOU HAVE LIVED ONE OF MY DREAMS, PLEASE TELL ME HOW IT WAS 


Also, in addition to Megan, the episode featured LEVAR BURTON. So it was obviously great.


*weird nerdy claim to fame alert*

BTW, a story I reported in August 2013 became an answer on a WWDTM episode during Lightning Fill in the Blank on Aug. 31, 2013.

PETER SAGAL: A farmer in Windsor, Vermont said, quote, “Now, I’m a believer” after he woke up in the middle of the night to discover blank.

AMY DICKINSON: Justin Bieber in his house.

SAGAL: No. He said…


SAGAL: …he woke up and said, I’m a believer after a pile of goat manure had spontaneously combusted and caught fire.


DICKINSON: That’s what it takes?

SAGAL: That’s what it takes.


Career-wise, it’s been all downhill from there. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

tbt: The 1965 car show at Leverone Field House

The Leverone Field House in Hanover, N.H., was the scene of hectic activity as workmen labored to clear booths and displays from the highly successful Trades Fair to make room for the 15th annual North Country Auto Show, sponsored by the Hanover Lions Club on March 27, 1965. Once the spacious field house was cleared, auto dealers from throughout the Upper Valley, moved their line of 1965 cars into pre-designated spots. Capturing a choice spot, located just inside one of the many entrances, was Baker and Heijn of White River Junction, Vt. Their display of foreign compacts and sports cars drew the attention of young and old and young at heart. (Valley News – Larry McDonald) Copyright Valley News.
