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.

Good WWDTM ,

Wait wait - Tell me what show

Love the “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me” show, but for some reason they’ve recently (2022) changed the podcast format - if you subscribe, they also force a download of a second podcast called “Everyone & Their Mom.” It feels like a back door way to launch a new show by shoving it down existing listeners’ podcast subscription throat.

Remember when Apple forced a U2 album on everyone’s phone? The folks at Wait Wait are doing that each week by forcing this different podcast “Everyone & Their Mom” on your phones if you subscribe to Wait Wait…

They made me NOT Wait Wait to unsubscribe!
