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.

Just The Show, Please

I have loved WWDTM for years, and I will always a listen. But I must tell you, the “Everyone” episodes aren’t great. And I also dislike the shows that are re-runs of NMJ. Its a podcast. You can’t do re-runs on a podcast. Otherwise, keep up the good work.
