How To Do Everything is half advice show, half survival guide. Hosts Ian Chillag and Mike Danforth take your questions and find experts to answer them.

How To Do Everything is a new weekly offering brought to you by Mike Danforth and Ian Chillag, producers of NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!" They answer listener questions on everything from "how to survive a fall from a cruise ship” to “how to give a bald eagle mouth to beak resuscitation.” And given how little Mike and Ian actually know how to do, they usually find experts who can help you out.
