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)_/¯
