Representing 50% of the Peters on this week's show, Peter Sagal. Thank you, Bill. Right now. It is time for the wait, Wait. Don't tell me Bluff, the listener game calling Triple eight. Wait, wait to play our game in the air. How you are on. Wait, Wait. Don't tell me This is John Schmidt, originally from Wichita, Kansas. But calling in from Beautiful, snowy Chicago, Illinois. Welcome to Chicago. When did you move here? So I am a graduate student in public policy at the University of Chicago. So I've been here about a year and a half. So are you gonna be? Do you plan like being a politician or a high paid political consultants? Something like that? I would say no to a politician, but I paid political consultant doesn't sound half bad when you say it.

While performing your next story of Peopie in the N E. W S comes from Lacey. Mostly the Foo Fighters are set to release their first new album in four years and getting here has been a journey during the recording of the album. Several members of the band sustained injuries, which can only be described as Metal, neck, rock and roll elbow and mosh pit secretions. 52 year old frontman David Girl suffered the worst of it.

I was shredding my face off and literally part of my face came off after multiple short stints in the ER and the Denny's early bird all you can eat buffet.
