NPR's Ask Me Another is an entertaining pop culture puzzle/quiz show. Hosted by comedian Ophira Eisenberg and co-hosted by musician Jonathan Colton, the program was taped live (prior to the pandemic), with contestants competing for appropriate Gen-X-like prizes such as Rubik's Cubes.  With entertaining "guest puzzlers" and other special appearances, Ask Me Another provides a family-friendly afternoon of pleasant brain-stretching.  Many of the Gen-X demographic the show played to raised children listening to it, teaching them that it's okay to think and have fun at the same time. (One my personal memories of parenting is taking my daughters to a taping at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where we saw guest puzzlers They Might Be Giants -- two other heroes for Gen-X nerds and their offspring! --  offer a challenging game of "Wrong!" and performing a new tune and an old classic. We still talk about that night.)

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the program could no longer rely on presence of a live audience and "regular" contestants, and the show's format had to change.  In spite of these issues, Ask Me Another remained an entertaining show of puzzles. Now that restrictions are being lifted in New York, many of us locals were looking forward to its return to the Bell House in Brooklyn for more live shows and live, non-celebrity contestants.  But sadly, NPR has opted to cancel the show.  Fans have been sharing their devastation throughout social media.

Please reconsider this decision, NPR! Ask Me Another deserves another!   Those of of who live in New York have embraced the Canadian-born Eisenberg as "one of us" (she's even become a US citizen!), and the show is one of the highlights of our local station WNYC's weekend programming.  SAVE Ask Me Another!
