Call the Brian Lehrer Show from the weirdest place possible. (flickr)

We've had callers to this show from all over the world, from moving trains, while getting ticketed for jaywalking, and even, once, the tub. We challenge you to call in from the weirdest place possible.

Hi, Brian, I'm in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I listen you every morning. I wouldn't say that Buenos Aires is weird, but it is actually very far from New York, a city that I love so much!
Thank you for your company everyday!!!

Not totally weird, but listen almost everyday from the kitchen of the restaurant where I work. I'm able to listen & multitask. For instance today I made a cherry-berry crumb pie, lemon ricotta poppy seed muffin batter, caramel & bran-raisin bread in the last 2hours!

I'm listening from a pre-production film-studio -- in Prague… (working on "16th century tapestries" in as a graphics-illustrator in the art-department…

Well, I'm not gonna' call because I don't know that I consider where I am "weird", but I wanted to say that we listen in our kitchen over coffee every day from Tangancicuaro, Michoacan, Mexico, a little farm town in the mountains at 6000ft. I was born in St. Albans and lived in Cambria Heights as a child, later moved upstate to Rochester, and after a military career ended up here for the last 15 years.
We enjoy the show and feeling connected to the states, thanks.
Larry and Rosa in Tangas.

I cannot call but wanted to mention that two weeks ago I was in Wellfleet, MA on Cape Cod, and I was receiving WNYC's signal in my car radio.
