We recorded the show in San Antonio, Texas, this week and invited journalist Dan Rather — Texas native and resident — to play our quiz. In addition to reporting on pretty much every major event of the last half century, Rather is also famous for “Ratherisms” — folksy sayings combining colorful metaphors with colorful wisdom. He’s used so many of them, we’re curious to see if he can pick out what he really said from the ones that we just made up.
