Great hosts. Great for Gameshow lovers and more

Love listening to these guys in the car and on my walks. Tom and Mike are very funny and entertaining hosts and you can tell they really love Gameshows and they play off of each other very well. Christian delivers the weekly Gameshow news and he is a Gameshow Trivia wizard. They try to stump him, and he almost always knows the answer every week - and these are really hard questions! It’s dumbfounding. It’s just a really fun, easy listening podcast. I laugh and learn something new about Gameshows and life in general every time I listen. Definitely recommend!

This podcast is fabulous!!

As a game show fan, Tell Them What They’ve Won is a fantastic show, done by two game show fans (and a genius from BuzzerBlog.com.) They do a great job, being funny and knowledgeable at the same time!!

Good podcast, but too many mistakes

It’s a great podcast if you like game shows. The news segment is the most interesting.

It’s a bit cringe when they make mistakes. The wheel of fortune mistake about selecting prizes from the letters in WHEEL is just unforgivable. It’s like they hadn’t watched the show in 20 years but commented on it as if they are regular viewers. A game show lover should know this.
