Mike Pesca, perhaps known to some as an infamous Jeopardy choker, has additionally been a broadcaster for nearly 20 years, including appearances on some of NPR's most prestigious and popular shows: On the Media, Planet Money, On Point, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, and on and on.

Pesca's a 2-time Edward R. Murrow award winner and currently hosts a daily podcast for Slate called The Gist. I invited him onto the show to talk about broadcast and the art of talking.
