Tired of the continuing bashing of President Trump. I didnât vote for him, but, none the less, there must be some other news to report and make fun of. I keep trying tolisten with the hope Peter and crew can do better. Usually I have to delete the episode 1/3 of the way through, out of disappointment.
For me, this is by far one of the best programs around. It keeps my informed, makes me laugh like crazy and let's me keep my head about me while it appears everything is burning down around us.
Love every minute of it!!
Iâve been listening to wait wait since I was 18 and my radio reader show was replaced by this new News/talk show. I rarely ever changed the channel from NPR and of Click and Clack could make me listen and laugh when I was even younger, then maybe this show will be âokayâ. Was I wrong... it was AMAZING and I now I have an addiction. I canât even have a good Saturday unless I get my Sagal fix. I now have my 10 yr old groaning when I turn on my âfunny people showâ, as she says, but even she canât help but try to solve limericks and gets squealing happy if she gets it right. Thank you for all of the long and happy years, and I expect many more to come.
Sexual violence, assault, harassment, or any related misconduct is not a joke. Ever. Regardless of gender. Suggesting that someone cannot find women who have committed such crimes is not a laughing matter. Sexual violence is a terrible act of human cruelty and it is not a gender specific crime. Nor is it fair to suggest that it is. I find it absolutely abhorrent to ever use this subject as a source of humor. Consider the pain of victims who are listening and how your words affect them. Laughing at someoneâs pain or suggesting it didnât happen is unacceptable. I am extremely disappointed that this show isnât choosing to be aware a considerate, especially given the current climate regarding sexual violence.
I love how Hilarious this Podcast is ;)
Love this show.
The best way to keep up with current (relevant and non relevant) events!
Bill and Peter are amazing. Maeve Higgins is the wittiest, most likable panelist. Her comedy is honest and grounded. Please put her in all future episodes. Please go back in time and edit her into all the episodes. Negin Farsad is also super fun. Helen Hong was a great substitute host. She is a fun panelist too. With my permission, you can put Helen and Maeve on all episodes and either Tom or Adam or anyone named Duane.
This is my must listen, itâs always great. And to the guy who dissed Ms. Poundstone in his review, I say, How Dare You!! Paula is a national treasure.
WWDTM The Naked and Afraid series is absolutely fantastic! Luke Burbankâs Wendyâs story was hilarious!! Keep up the great work.
Thank you for panelist Maeve Higgins! please have her on your show as often as possibleâ great combo of panelists for her debut!
This is not really a review, more of a thank you. With everything that has gone down with the USA gymnastics team I thought it was extremely refreshing to see Ali Raisman in this light. She and the cast were funny and entertaining. But the most important thing that I noticed was how respectful they were towards her. They did not hit her with 1 billion questions that she would rather not answer about the gymnastics scandal; she was just on to lightly promote her book and have fun. The entire cast and crew of the show has my respect.
Occasional low brow humor is sprinkled in with satire, sarcastic humor, and information. Does not fear self-deprecating humor, a trait I like in comedy. Definitely left/liberal leaning, as can be expected for an NPR show who tries hard to cater to its target university-aged audience. Enjoyable listening.
The least painful way to stay current. A spoonful of sugar...ð¶
I love Wait Wait. I listen every weekend and it always makes me laugh. Peter is so clever and Bill is hilarious! The only criticism I have is that the show grinds to a halt every time Roxanne Roberts speaks. She seems to think she is so funny because she laughs at all her little quips even though nobody else laughs.
This hilarious quiz show is an excellent way to stay updated on current events and wacky pieces of news from around the world. It actually makes the news digestible and funny. Also, Maeve Higgins, a new panelist this past week, is a riot! Please have her back every week?!
Every Saturday I go to the podcast page on my iPad to see if the most recent episode has dropped.The format of old time radio game show mixed with current affairs and of course humor, in all forms from groan to belly laugh, is what draw me in every week.Peter is sooo smooth at keeping the pace going and the inmates under control on the panel it is masterful.His quick wit is amazing and I just love the way it all just falls into place and makes me a fan of the show more every week.The panel is such a wonderful and quirky mix with Faith and Mos and Tom and of course Paula.Please nobody pass away just yet so we can all live another week for this program!!
Best in show donât miss a single episode!!!
This is a great way to get the news and see the funny side of human nature.
The most amazing show! It makes me happy
A very funny program! Since Doonesbury no longer publishes daily, this show is often how I get my news!
1. Unfortunately, 9/11 was my middle daughterâs entre into âtalkâ radio. 2. She hates âtalkâ radio now, but I am happy to report, âMom! NPR is not talk radio.â3. Clearly Iâm a superior parent. 4. I want to be Miz Paula Poundstone when I grow up (it was Betty White. The kidâs quote was the tipping point. 5. I have a frog named Carl Castle. The kid reminded me I also have on named Michael Feldman, but who here cares. 6. I LOVE Bill Castle, his openings make me yearn for Depends; but Mr. Castle holds a special place in my heart. 7. I had a crush on Mo Rocca until he was on television (be nice. I also have a crush on Peter Whatshisface. I have a policy not to google him.
Favorite part of the week is when wait wait donât tell me comes out! Great listen every time.
Extremely fun news quiz, keeps me well entertained!
Sometimes it's the only way I can stiomache the news; with a heaping dose of hilarity and amazing panelists. I tune in every week.
It's hard to imagine anyone not liking "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me". While there are ocassional episodes that are duds, they are far outnumbered by the one's that put a foolish grin on my face.Keep up the great work!
Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! has been a staple in my life for about 10 years now. As a young millennial that might seem strange but I love the smart, and entertaining approach to the news especially with the current political climate. I find that listening to Up First (though helpful and well done) depresses me most days, but Wait Wait is always there to make my Saturday afternoon drives better! Thanks for always being the best!
Listened to this show over a year now itâs my go-to for Monday morning to have a bit of a laugh in a mindful time. Itâs a great mix of comedy with current events on a regular basis. The show has also introduced me to books and shows from their guests.
Enjoyable interview. Moved smoothly and amicably.
when I first started listening to this podcast, I binged listened for 9 hours. The comedy is so good at times, it's laugh out-loud funny. Thanks for making such a great podcast!!
Long time listener and Public Radio Donor. Loved, loved listenening to Faith and Mo chat. Such nice, funny people. Keep on doing what you are doing! I think every regular - Paula, Mo, Roy, Faith, Tom, Alonzo, etc. everyone, deserves their own highlight show. Like during the holidays when y'all are on vacation or during pledge week. Plus, Faith killed it when she hosted recently. Cheers. Barbara
I love this show and look forward to listening to new episodes every weekend! :)
I have to admit...THIS IS THE BEST PODCAST EVER! This comedic podcast is great because it is known for making fun of the news and I guarantee that you will make at the very least a chuckle listening. I am not kidding! This podcast is hilarious! I love their jokes about the news and right now we really need laughter and happiness in our society. Listen to this podcast and you will laugh your head off! ðððBTW:I love you Paula Poundstone!
Would recommend. That is all
I love driving to work and listen the show before work. It sets the day for an awesome day. Thank you guys. From the beautiful Northwest, Portland, Oregon.
Go see them tape a show. So worth it!
I couldnât stop laughing throughout the entirety of this pod. Amazing
I love Paula Poundstone! As well as the others!
Faith Sallie is a very funny and effective host. Watch your back, Peter!
I love listening to the show on NPR and it is so great to have it "on demand" in podcast form. The banter between the guests make me laugh out loud but I always have interesting news tidbits to share with friends. Love it. The mini casts midweek are always so silly and quirky.
I enjoyed this show for a little while but the âleftist/liberal fart suckingâ has become overplayed and lazy (recycled Trump jokes). Ask me another is much more entertaining.
I love your show!!!!!!!!!!!
This show is great. An entertaining combo of news & humor. I just listened to my favorite episode ever, with guest, James Comey. Laugh out loud funny! This is a show my wife & I totally agree on. Favorite regular is Alonso Bowden.
This show makes news fun.
and I finally got to see them live! Love this show. It helps you laugh when thinking of the news as an alternative to the crying you really want to do.
Absolutely love this show!!! Both funny and informative!
I started listening to this a few months ago and itâs so awesome!!!!!!!
We listen as a family to this every weekend, my kids have grown up playing "wait wait" and doing pretend quiz shows. Ahh good times. Paula will always be our favorite guest, but they're all fantastic. Keep up the great work!
For my sanity I need my weekly listen. Listen to it with the kids in the car. They might even learn a little and get interested. And. Itâs just human. Left leaning.
