The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Question for Ken: "As It Happens"

I've been playing your weekly News Quizzes on Slate.com for years but this was the first time I ever got 12/12. A number of the questions coincided with topics this week on the CBC radio program, As It Happens. I understand it's also carried on some US Public Radio stations as well.

Is that show actually the source of several of your questions? Are you a regular listener?

No! As it happens, "As It Happens" is one of MANY Canadian news radio shows I don't listen to. (The others include: all of them.)

But I definitely circle around a particular KIND of news story, so that's why there might be unusual overlap between the Slate Quiz and other kinds of light, week-in-review-type features.

Well if you ever run short of ideas (HAH!), it's on Seattle NPR weeknights at 9 pm. The first half is usually dedicated to serious subject, the second half not so much.
