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.

Re: letter from the editors

Thank you for this lovely Wednesday treat. The weeks are long between WWDTM episodes.

They are just plain old awesome

I’m 12 and I’ve listened to these guys for years. I love falling asleep to them or listening to them in the radios on Saturdays
