Paula Poundstone has had a long and fruitful career as a stand-up comic, television and voice actress, on-air correspondent, and author. A regular panelist on NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!, Paula was perfectly positioned to compete in the Game Show: The Game Show Game Show during her recent Wits™ appearance with iconic post-punk rocker Robyn Hitchcock.

While she was in town for Wits™, The Current Morning Show was happy to welcome her into our studio to chat with the hosts and take over our airwaves for a little bit, playing some of her favorite tunes for another edition of Theft of the Dial.
