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.

Thanks for all the great shows

Thank you for all the wonderful shows. They are a particular comfort now during “shelter in place”. I have no idea how long this will last but at least I have Wait Wait archives...
