If you missed it on the radio yesterday, be sure to listen online as Reed Timmer, host of the Discovery Channel’s show “Storm Chasers”, visits with Peter Sagal on NPR’s news quiz program “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!”
Timmer, an inspiration for the movie “Twister”, races toward the sort of weather events that most of us would flee. After listening to a few of Timmer’s modestly told tales of insane daring, risking his life to experience the inside of a tornado, Sagal asked, who’s crazier, people who live in the midwest with tornadoes or those who live in California with earthquakes?
Timmer’s reply followed by Paula Poundstone’s comic rebuttal had me laughing for the next 20 miles.
So now it’s your turn to play. Crazier: people in the Midwest for braving tornadoes or California living with earthquakes? Leave a comment here.
