It's been 20 years since the NPR news quiz show “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me” launched. Host Peter Sagal and judge and scorekeeper Bill Kurtis, along with a roster of panelists, make each other laugh each week with an indispensable look at current events.

Wait Wait was one of NPR's first podcasts and is broadcast on more than 720 NPR Member stations, including South Dakota Public Broadcasting. It reaches millions of listeners weekly. And it's essentially a trivia program.

Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! is having a 20th birthday party! On October 25, 2018 they're recording a super-sized show at the iconic Chicago Theater. All their panelists join the festivities. Audience members can also win door prizes.
