Ask People Whatever the Hell You Want?

Here’s a fun twist. On August 9, WaPo‘s Clinton Yates, NPR’s Linda Holmes and Slate‘s Dave Weigel will appear at Politics & Prose for an evening of — what do we call this — verbal waterboarding? No, no, it’s called “Ask Roulette” and it’s an evening of “strangers asking each other any questions they want.”

What could possibly go wrong?

The announcement says if you get called on stage you’ll be able to ask your question, but only after you answer a question. Watching is also perfectly acceptable. Over the course of the evening, they promise “unexpected connections, surprising anecdotes, and honest conversation—and laughter.”

The fun begins at 7 p.m.
