I thought I'd do a couple things different for this week's episode of Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, the the NPR quiz show created and hosted by Peter Sagal. First, usually I'm a few weeks behind the current episode, but today we'll be posting this week's show the same week it aired. And second, I'm going to embed the full show, not just the 'Not My Job" segment. And that's all because this week Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is celebrating its 1,000th show. I figure that that's as good a reason anything to give people the chance to hear what the full program is really like. (If you'd still only like to listen to 'Not My Job,' you can just jump forward about 20 minutes. The guest is pioneering biologist Nalini Nadkarni.)
