Everyone Is Real

Locke Meyer · Everyone is Real || Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me! The NPR News Quiz

At the end of the spring semester of my sophomore year (roughly April - May 2023), I spent, over the course of a few weeks, four hour-long radio shows reading the names of every student at Williams College out loud on 91.9 WCFM. This happened as part of my radio show, "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me! The NPR News Quiz" -- no relation to the one hosted by Peter Sagal. I read the names in a random order so that nobody would be able to predict when theirs would be read, and when I read the name of someone who I knew, I said a few things about them. The highest number of concurrent listeners recorded was 25.
