A Mensa-worthy Romance – Says You! Presents at Mensa Convention

Says You! drew a standing-room-only crowd at Mensa’s 2019 Annual Gathering in Phoenix on July 6th. A first for the Says You! squad. Dave Zobel and Carolyn Faye Fox presented a Mensa session specifically highlighting public radio’s Says You!

“Head writer and occasional host Dave Zobel draws aside the curtain for a backstage peek at the show’s origins, its history, and its six wisecracking, fast-thinking panelists, who spend an hour each week trying to outdo one another in punnery and cleverness … while only occasionally getting around to giving actual answers. In the words of Says You! creator and original host Richard Sher: “It’s not important to know the answer; it’s important to like the answer.”

Mensan and Says You! contributor Linda Ferrazzara wrote the story behind “How I fell in love with a radio show… and what happened when it loved me back” see featured in the Mensa Bulletin article below.

Well, Whaddya Know?

Ralph from San Pablo writes-
“Ya miss one show this year, and it turns out to be the one that puts the House of McCaskey into the Hall of Fame! Fortunately, we heard from a few friends (some absent for years) about it.  Thanks for the app – we were actually able to hear it with our very own ears!”
We received a letter from San Pablo, California…and it reminds us all to tune in each week. If by chance you miss a show, it will be available on our podcast one week after we have gone to the national airwaves as the House of McCaskey learned.

Says You! Ticket Update!

The SEATTLE shows scheduled to take place on Friday, April 5, and Saturday, April 6, in Town Hall Seattle have moved to a new theater.

With the combined support of the University of Washington and KUOW, the show will go on! Same date, same time, new location:

We look forward to seeing you on Friday, April 5 at 7:30pm and Saturday, April 6 at 7:30pm

            Roethke Auditorium in Kane Hall at the University of Washington 

If you purchased your tickets before 2/22/2019, you received an updated copy of your email confirmation receipt on Saturday (2/23) from Brown Paper Tickets with your new seating assignments at the Roethke Auditorium in Kane Hall. Painstaking effort by Brown Paper Tickets has resulted in most seating remaining in or very near the same row you originally purchased. PLEASE check your email to find these updates.


 Physical tickets – ALL physical tickets will be reissued via email as PRINT-AT-HOME tickets. You will not receive new tickets in the mail.  Please print and bring the new print-at-home 8.5 x 11 paper ticket to the show. If you do not have access to a printer, please contact Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006.


Print at Home tickets will be reissued to you via email with your new seats in Kane Hall at UW.

Q&A Event tickets – This is a Saturday event and will take place at 6:30pm in Kane Hall.

We are so sorry for the inconvenience – as is everyone from Town Hall Seattle.  However, we are lucky to be able to see so many old and new friends in Seattle – just at Kane Hall this year.  The Seattle audiences have always been and continue to be sui generis, so we promise to do our ‘bestest’ – you deserve it.
