NPR's best programming!

Amazing show! Carl Kasell and Peter Sagal are a humorous team that take the week's news point out the irony, discontinuity, or radicalness. The panel adds comedy to the mix, and together, they are the best way to enjoy the week's events. In my opinion, the Paula Poundstone episodes are the best.

Great

It’s great humor I recommend it greatly

This is why I’m shouting in my car.

I love learning useless facts and playing along. There aren’t enough episodes for as much as I need it.
