Do you think you have what it takes to be a contender on Jeopardy!? Do you like to play along at home and see how you compare to the participants?

Today, we are joined by Abby Mann, a Digital Scholarship Librarian for Illinois Wesleyan University. She became a contestant on the May 28 airing of Jeopardy! and played again as a returning Champion on May 29. 

We'll talk with her about the application process, how she prepared for the game and her experience on set.
