Careful! Don’t snort your tea while laughing!

This hilarious and topic panel show is perfect for those who love to follow the news, but need a humorous break. Anyone who like Wait, Wait! Don’t Tell Me! Will like this, though the styles are different. My dream would be for the two shows to do a show together...how amazing to have Gavin and Peter together with some of the excellent regular panelists from each!

Great fun!

Really enjoy listening each week. The guests may not be well known here in the US but it really doesn’t matter. Their great senses of humor and unique take on our ridiculous leaders help make things a little better.

Great. Funny and informative even for Americans

I like it better than Wait Wait because it is more related to real news and less entertainment but it is still very funny.

Yes, some of the news is Canadian and I live in the U.S. but it is refreshing to hear what's going on elsewhere and also to get outsiders' perspectives on us.
