A couple weeks ago on the wonderful NPR show out of WBEZ in Chicago, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, (that I wrote about here for thems who don't know it), here again is the "Not My Job" segment. This is the part of the show where a public figure comes on for an interview and then is given three questions to answer (on behalf of a listener) in a field having absolutely nothing to their area of expertise, though oddly having some deeply-tangential and whimsical connection. The guest is Lena Headey, one of the stars of Game of Thrones. And the topic she's given is "Games that are worse than Game of Thrones." Happily, the wonderful host Peter Sagal is back on the show, after his brief time off, and so the interview is as charming and funny as ever..
