Love the quizzes, so-so on the guests

I listen to every episode! Love the quiz games and love playing along. I do tend to fast-forward through about half of the interviews. Just not entertaining, especially if I’m not familiar with the guest/show/movie. I also wish they would begin the “rerun” episodes with a short blurb that it’s a re-run, or an indication in the episode title. It’s annoying to start listening only to have it sound familiar and then have to read the full description and see at the end the “originally aired” date.

I’d like to point something out...

The reviews that I can see in the previews below are unrepresentative of all the reviews of the show, as you can see with the average review of the show (4.5 stars at the time of writing, if I remember correctly), and for good reason.

AMA is an awesome show. Love the interviews, even with people I’m unfamiliar with, and I love the trivia!!

Find Me Another (Quiz Show)

I used to love this show. The games and quizzes, particularly the wordplay puzzles and song parodies, are always fun. Jonathan Coulton is fresh and funny and a true joy.

However...

Over years of listening, I have been disappointed at the shortcuts creeping into this program. Ophira’s brand of humor is best in short doses, but her monologues and interviews with “celebrity guests” (90% of whom are unknown to me) have gradually gotten longer and less entertaining. We now routinely have not one but two special guests, giving the hour-long show unneeded bloat at the expense of the content I subscribed for.

Worse still, the show’s quizzes and games now seem to take a backseat to political pandering, social justice commentary, and casual slamming of conservative values that I find alienating. I am disheartened to hear the show’s host and guests dismissing marriage, belittling men, encouraging adultery, and disrespecting religion. Each new episode brings something distasteful.

Some might say “that’s NPR for you,” but a program branded as an “hour of puzzles, word games, and trivia” should be just that.
