RK: [low] I don’t know. I don’t think we should.
JA: Robert, just say your line.
RK: No. No.
JA: Come on.
RK: I’m Robert Krulwich.
JA: And together we host Radio Lab and we’re coming to you today.
RK: The thing is it’s kind of rude and we don’t know them or anything and they don’t really know us that well.

RK: Do you think they’ll do it?
JA: I think they will, yeah.
RK: You do?
JA: Here’s how.
