Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? (w/ Gregg Gethard)

February 23, 2016
Join Scott and his very special guest, Gregg Gethard, as they discuss Gregg's amazing experience being a contestant on the geography-based PBS game show "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?"! Listen as Gregg talks all about this surreal event from his childhood, including almost seeing someone get injured on the way to the show, how badly he wanted to beat his competition, his frequent microphone issues, how he got caught cheating, the story behind his terrible knock-knock joke, meeting award-winning actress Lynne Thigpen, the reason why he knew the exact location of Burkina Faso, and what ended up happening to his prizes. He'll also talk about how he handles the internet comments, some of his hilariously infamous standup sets, and most importantly, how this one day he spent on a game show set as a kid ended up being one of the defining moments of his life. Do it Rockapella!
