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.

Wait wait don’t tell me

This is my favorite show. I’ve been listening for years. It always make me laugh, especially Paula Poundstone. Peter Sagal is the best host. When people have to fill in for him they are fine, but he is the best!

LOVE Tom Papa as Host

It's a bittersweet time loving (more than ever) & even newly being excited over recent episodes due to how much more entertaining Tom Papa is as host and knowing that it probably has to end at some point.
