What fandom is this? Is there an umbrella term? --Doro 23:00, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

It's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" (the National Public Radio show) crossed with zombies. --Mrs. Potato Head 23:02, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
But is this a fandom? Or does it belong to something like Pundit RPF? --Doro 23:05, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
It's tagged with National Public Radio RPF on AO3. Pundit RPF is for television personalities, from what I can see.
They're still pundits, though. And real people. [an aside, I've actually been to a live taping of this show...] --Mrs. Potato Head 23:11, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
Actually, of the 5 NPR stories on AO3, most are about Car Talk or This American Life, neither of which are pundit types. --æthel 23:17, 3 September 2010 (UTC). Really, though, it depends on whether the people writing NPR consider themselves part of Pundit RPF--æthel 23:19, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

fandom category?

Currently this is tagged with Pundit RPF and not National Public Radio RPF. The hosts of Wait Wait Don't Tell Me are not pundits but humorists, so even if some people on NPR are "pundits", I don't think this qualifies. I think Pundit RPF is another case of a very specific fandom getting a very vague name ala Popslash and Bandom. Unfortunately, I don't think there's likely to be more NPR RPF content, so it doesn't make sense to create a category for it. Are there any other orphan radio RPF pages on Fanlore we could make a generic Category:Radio RPF for?--aethel (talk) 17:43, 17 April 2022 (UTC)
