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.

Sometimes I have to pull my car over to the side of the road

Danger! Too many laugh out loud moments.The hosts have great timing with the culturally diverse, rotating cast of hysterically smart comedians. These folks have become my favorite podcast-friends over the years. Also gives me lots of wacky-but-true conversation starters.
