As the saying goes, when one door closes, another one opens. At NHPR, we have taken this opportunity to take a look at our entire weekday lineup, and challenged ourselves with some important questions.

• Ask Me Another is a rambunctious hour that blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites in-studio guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones, and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from house musician Jonathan Coulton. Ask Me Another starts January 13 and airs Sundays at 2 pm.
