PETER SAGAL, host: Now panel, what will be the next new way we consume media? Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: There'll just be a metal chip in your head and you don't even turn it on. It just keeps going.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Mo Rocca?

MO ROCCA: Teletubby-like devices in our stomachs. And with expanding waistlines, we'll all have giant flat screens pretty soon.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Roy Blount, Jr.?

ROY BLOUNT JR: To sort of combat elitism in the media, the talking heads will come to your house as holograms and sit around your table with you and your friends. And they will say something and you will lean over towards them and say, you are so full of it.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

CARL KASSELL, host: Well, if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Mo Rocca, Paula Poundstone and Roy Blount, Jr. Thanks also to Chris Bann(ph) and Abby Levinger(ph) and everyone at WNYC. Thanks to our fabulous audience here at Carnegie Hall. (Unintelligible) New York City.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: And thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.
