A mash-up of “Jeopardy” meets “Saturday Night Live,” Ask Me Another is NPR’s rambunctious hour of puzzles, word games and trivia that blends your local pub’s trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg and house musician Jonathan Coulton challenge in-studio contestants and listeners alike with games that stretch their noggins and tickle their funny bones. And each episode celebrity guests take a turn in the contestant's chair, facing games written especially for them. What you'll hear resembles the casual intimacy of game night at a friend's house: one where scores are forgotten in favor of hilarious gaffes, and the grand prize is a good time. With guests Phil Johnston (writer of "Wreck-it-Ralph" and "Cedar Rapids" and the upcoming "Zootopia"), Steve Sansweet ("Star Wars" collector and president of Rancho Obi-Wan, Inc.) and Mo Willems (beloved kids book author of series with Knuffle Bunny, The Pigeon, The Elephant and more). $35 All Ages
