This week’s edition of the NPR quiz show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! may not be perhaps the quintessential “social distancing” episode of a game show – or pretty much anything – you are likely to hear, but the guest contestant for the “Not My Job” segment can talk about that – and how to survive in the same place for a long time -- better than almost anyone. It’s Astronaut Christina Koch who holds the record for the longest time a woman has been in orbit (328 days) and took part in the first three all-women space. Her timing may not be great, though, since she most-recently returned to earth this past February. Her conversation with host Peter Sagal about her experiences away from her husband for two years (including training) and now then being sequestered with him 24/7. But her stories about (without giving anything away) “looking for things” whether in space or on earth are a total hoot.
