Prediction

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

In just a minute, we'll ask our panelists to predict what we will be doing this time next week. But first, let me tell you that support for NPR comes from NPR stations and Visit St. Pete Clearwater, offering 35 miles of white sand Florida beaches and the Dali Museum, presenting "Ferran Adria: The Invention Of Food" through November 27 at visitstpeteclearwater.com. LifeLock, reminding consumers that personal information can be exposed by using public Wi-Fi and shopping online. More at lifelock.com. And Lumber Liquidators, a proud sponsor of NPR, offering more than 400 styles, including hardwood, bamboo, laminate and vinyl, with flooring specialists in hundreds of stores nationwide. More at lumberliquidators.com or 1-800-HARDWOOD. A special thanks to The Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville, Tenn. Built in 1910, The Hermitage offers classical Beaux-Arts architecture. Each guest room features custom-made Hypnos beds and services like nightly turn-down and an on-call bath concierge. More information is at thehermitagehotel.com.

WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME is a production of NPR and WBEZ Chicago, in association with Urgent Haircut Productions, Doug Berman, benevolent overlord. Our intern is a very good granddaughter, Alex Wallachy. Our Web guru is Beth Novey. B.J. Leiderman composed our theme. Our program is produced by Robin Linn and Miles Doornbos, technical direction from Lorna White. Our CFO is Ann Nguyen. Our production coordinator is Robert Neuhaus. Thanks to the staff and crew at TPAC. Our senior producer is Ian Chillag, and the executive producer of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME is Mr. Michael Linwood Danforth.

Now, panel, what will we be doing this time next week? Peter Grosz.

PETER GROSZ: We will be sharpening our teeth into weapons, trading animal pelts for food rations and watching "Mad Max" for survival tips.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Roxanne Roberts.

ROXANNE ROBERTS: I'll be probably drunk, hiding under my bed, waiting for white smoke to come out of the White House chimney.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: And Alonzo Bodden.

ALONZO BODDEN: No matter who wins, Barack Obama's invited me to the party at the bunker.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

BILL KURTIS: Well, if we're doing any of that, panel, we're going to ask you about it right here on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Peter, Alonzo and Roxanne. Thanks to Donna Robinson and everyone at Nashville Public Radio. Thanks to our fabulous audience here at TPAC in Nashville. Thanks to all of you for listening at home. Next week is election week, and we will be there for you, come hell or nuclear war. I am Peter Sagal, and we'll see you next week.

(APPLAUSE, SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SAGAL: This is NPR. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
