The first person to correctly answer the trivia question below wins the tickets, and a chance to see “the Dersh” hold forth in person on Assange, Wikileaks, and well, probably himself. Maybe mostly himself.

As Galanes notes, lunch comes mid-morning when your day starts at 3:30 a.m. The trio discussed the differences in dynamics between themselves and the co-hosts of Brzezinski’s “Morning Joe” and King’s “CBS This Morning.” They also talked about their favorite interviews they’ve done and about parenting, with Galanes guiding the conversation. Overall, it reads like a few friends chatting about work and life over brunch.

Why you should read it: Galanes is as much a part of the piece as King and Brzezinski, which makes for an quirky, entertaining dynamic. When he suggests Mika is just a sidekick to Joe, Gayle jumps in and says Mika is no “mouseburger.” Galanes’ interview offers glimpse into their lives outside the studio.
