Makes you laugh, makes you think. Please bring it back

WE NEED THIS SHOW BACK! I have been enjoying AMA for some time now. It is produced very well. Ophira Eisenberg is an awesome host, Jonathan Coulton is an incredible musician and the puzzle gurus and writers are very creative. I love trying to figure out the quizzes and laughing at all the punning and joking. I love listening anytime but especially before bedtime to drown out all of the chaos from the day’s current events. This is one of the best podcasts out there. For the sake of all of humanity…bring them back…please!!!

NPR…. We’re mad at you!

We are avid listeners to NPR, especially on out weekend drives… listening to puzzle shows and chats, laughing like we are at the table with old friends. We just found out that we were listening to the last episode of Ask Me Another, one of our very favorite shows of all time. NPR, we feel like you are taking away our best friends. Please reconsider taking this show off the air! Bring it back! Even the performers are upset this is ending! It was a heartbreaking episode to listen to. I’m terribly sad! What an amazing and clever show… only to be taken off, leaving us with drivel and boring reality stars talking about themselves. How depressing. We need more smart and entertaining shows that make us think and enjoy our time together! Bring our friends back!
