Not My Job: Gloria Steinem

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

And now the game where amazing people do completely mundane things. It's called Not My Job. Sixty years ago, Gloria Steinem helped found the feminist movement. She famously went undercover to work as a Playboy bunny to report what that was like. She founded Ms. Magazine. She's been a leading activist in the women's movement for decades. She has a new book out. She joins us now.

Gloria Steinem, welcome to WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

GLORIA STEINEM: Thank you. Thank you.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

And now the game where notable people are asked questions about things they never bothered to notice because they were doing something important.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Tim Kaine has represented Virginia in the U.S. Senate since 2013, and he was, prior to that, governor of the commonwealth. And you may remember he came pretty close to being vice president of the United States a couple years ago.

In the fall of last year, we reached a milestone - our 1,000th show. It's amazing we ever made it this far.

BILL KURTIS: It feels like it's just been 970 or so.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: To mark the occasion, we went back to Salt Lake City, where we did our first-ever show in front of a live audience. And there, we talked to a remarkable woman, a professor of biology at the University of Utah.
