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.

Mean and disrespectful

I used to listen but it is just mean bashing now. Sad, because it used to be fun.

HILARIOUS

My parents let me listen to this and I’m 13. I don’t get all of the jokes because the news bore me, but I get 8 out of 10. This is a great podcast and I would give it a four star for funny but they get a fifth star for their guests and the games played on the podcast. Peter is also HILARIOUS and I laugh so long after the joke is over, so if your looking for a podcast that will keep you listening, listen to Wait! Wait! Don’t tell me! And the Spitballers Comedy Podcast (That is also an awesome comedy pod, but not about the news)
