      Obviously you don't know exactly what will be asked, but between the category name and some information on the air date, you can occasionally get sufficiently mentally prepared to answer a question, particularly when you're in control.  Bob Harris writes about using this technique extensively in his 5-day run; it's analogous to "pre-caching" in a computer, where the application or processor guesses at some data that might be needed in the future in order to reduce the time needed to fetch it if it is needed.
