Micah Loewinger: It's time for On the Media Trivia. With me today is On the Media's intern Juwayriah Wright. Juwayriah, welcome.
Juwayriah Wright: Hi, thanks for having me.
Micah: Okay, Juwayriah, I'm going to ask you three trivia questions. If you're able to get at least two correct, you will win a hat hand-crocheted by the one and only Brooke Gladstone.How does that sound?
Juwayriah: I don't own a single hat, so I would love to be christened with Brooke's hat.
Micah: Okay. First question, who was the original host of On the Media? A, Brian Lehrer, B, Alex Jones, C, Rex Burlington, or D, Soterios Johnson?
Juwayriah: I'm just going to go with D, Soterios Johnson, because I like the name.
Micah: Ooh, Juwayriah I'm sorry to say that is incorrect.
Juwayriah: Oh, no.
Micah: The right answer was B, Alex Jones.
Micah: Not that Alex Jones, a different Alex Jones.
Juwayriah: Right. Okay. Presumably so, yes.
Micah: It's still possible to win the hat. Okay. Second question, what is the name of Brooke's cat? A, Shlomo, B, Gibraltar, C, Mendel, or D, Schrodinger?
Juwayriah: Schrodinger sounds like a fun name for a cat, but I'm going to have to go with C, Mendel.
Micah: That's correct.
Micah: Nicely done. Can we get a round of applause?
Juwayriah: Thank you.
Micah: That was a bit of a gimme, because I'm pretty sure you've met Mendel?
Juwayriah: Oh, yes, I've chased Mendel before.
Micah: I was going to give you a really hard time, if you didn't get that right. Okay. Third and final question, who is the smartest producer on our staff? A, Leah Feder, B, Eloise Blondiau, C, Rebecca Clark-Callender, D, Micah Loewinger?
Juwayriah: You know what, I'm really going to get in trouble for this, aren't I? [chuckles]
Micah: Think carefully about this one.
Juwayriah: I guess I'm going to have to go with D, Micah Loewinger.
Micah: Juwayriah, I am flattered, but that is not the correct answer.
Juwayriah: Oh, no.
Micah: The correct answer was all of the above. Juwayriah, come on, jeez.
Juwayriah: I was just trying to get points from you!
Micah: Better luck next time. You got one out of three correct. Okay, folks, she did not get enough questions correct, but we'll be giving her a hat anyway.
Juwayriah: Thank you. Thank you. [chuckles]
Micah: Fortunately, for you, Juwayriah, and everyone listening at home, this is not the last time you can flex your On the Media knowledge, because on December 7th, we will be hosting an On the Media Trivia night. Our whole team is going to be there. It's going to be fun, and funny, and stimulating, and there's going to be some pretty sweet prizes. All you need to do to get an invite to the event, which will be on Zoom, is become a sustaining member. If you've never donated before, it really just takes a minute. Go to onthemedia.org and hit the Support button or text the letters OTM to 70101. Again, OTM to the number 70101.
Those sustaining donations, $10, $12, $20 a month, that's the money that keeps the show on air. That's the money that powers our journalism. It's really, really important, and if you're already an OTM sustainer, thank you so much.
