We're joined by comedienne Paula Poundstone, probably best known by public radio listeners as one of the most beloved recurring guests on the NPR News Quiz, Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me! We’ll pick her brain in advance of her show on on March 3rd at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers.

She got her start earlier this year playing Scout in the theatre's production of To Kill a Mockingbird. As part of her research for the role, the fifth grader took a trip to the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine with actress Betsy Hogg, who is playing her teacher Anne Sullivan in the show, as well as the play's director Maureen Heffernan. Both Hogg and Heffernan will join the show as well.
