Sean on NPR’s ‘Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me’

Here is the highlight of my appearance on NPR’s ‘Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me’ in which I needed to relate three pop songs to certain stories from that week’s news.

That week in 2005, George W. Bush withdrew his nomination for Harriet Miers for Supreme Court Justice… and Rosa Parks very sadly passed away.

Years later, driving around Denver with family, I remember my mom telling my uncle about this. My uncle actually remembered laughing at me years before, unaware it was me he was laughing at! 🙂
