How to Do Everything

During the day, Mike Danforth and Ian Chillag produce NPR’s weekly quiz show Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me! In their off-hours, they create a weekly podcast called How to Do Everything. In it, the nasal-voiced hosts ask a variety of experts and famous people pressing how-to questions. Recent episodes featured gonzo reality TV chef Andrew Zimmern on how to cook cicadas, Patrick Stewart on how to carry the Olympic torch, and Barry Manilow on how to write a catchy commercial jingle. Along the way, the show unearths great incidental tips for living. Example: How to look cool in a hot situation? Stick sanitary pads in the armpits of your shirt.
