Paula Poundstone

Best known as one of the wittiest panelists on National Public Radio’s comedy news quiz show Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me, comedian Paula Poundstone has come a long way since starring in the cheesy 1984 cult sci-fi movie Hyperspace as a transmission repair shop cashier who is kidnapped by an intergalactic villain known as Lord Buckethead. Since her clash with space aliens 34 years ago, Poundstone has gone on to thrive on the stand-up comedy circuit. Along with her steady guest appearances on NPR, Poundstone has recently started her own podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone, and released her new book The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness. Click here for the Current's interview with Poundstone.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
