Peter Sagal leads his crew with sophistication. I like most of his panelists, esp. Paula Poundstone. Their repartee and quick responses make me laugh out loud. The one drawback is the new sidekick, Bill, who is too self-centered and self-congratulatory for my taste.

My parents loved this show. I didn’t get it. Until I reached about 5 years into my double digits, that is. Laugh-out-loud entertaining and good mental therapy for when you need to get a laugh out of the news.

Funny recap of the week in news

Rating: ★★★★★

So I’m biased. I grew up with this show- I even volunteered working the crowds for live tapings of this show! However, being overseas makes me appreciate the consistency and quality of a show like this. You get to laugh, you get to learn, and most importantly you don’t feel like you’re missing out of what’s going on at home.

Love it!

I used to just enjoy this show but now I love it. They are taking this crazy era to task, and it's hilarious. It feels like the only sane thing these days.

I have listened to this weekly for a very long time and Never get tired of it. The format stays the same but rotating panelists keep it fresh. A previous review thought Paula Poundstone is not a good panelist. I disagree. I know it will be a top notch show whenever she is on. Bobcat What’s-his-name is the only one I can’t stand. Those remarks just show that WWDTM has something for everyone. Note to producers: the BEST guest host is Mike Pesca.

This is such a fun show! I love it even when I fall behind, but it is really good to listen every week. I can't stand the news most of the time, but this lets me feel like I'm not totally out of the loop.

Love Paula Poundstone

by Critime on Nov 21, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I like the format but the jokes are wearing thin. The only time the show is witty is when Poundstone is on, otherwise it is middle aged humor.

Always a favorite

This podcast is an absolute riot to listen to--I love playing along at home seeing how much of the week's news I paid adequate attention to. Its snarky take on news and politics is really appreciated by my entire family--we listen every week together!

Wait Wait is the only podcast I NEVER miss. Peter Sagel is a witty, quick-thinking host who drives the show forward in such a fun and intelligent way. Genius. Especially love episodes with Paula Poundstone, who always has be doubled over with laughter. Try this podcast and like me, you’ll be hooked.

I don’t honestly remember anything more engaging and witty than WWDTM in a long line time. Maybe Whose Line is it Anyway is a comparison. Brilliant writers and amazing hosts - Peter and Bill. Carry on, gentlemen!

This is public radio and should not be the exclusive forum for the Democratic Party , however, that is what it is. Tired of the incessant Trump bashing!!

I’m so happy that Wait Wait has a podcast. I’m rarely available on Saturday mornings to listen to the radio. But later each Saturday, I punch up the podcast and voila! An hour of smart, hilarious fun. All of the regulars are clever and funny but Paula always proves to be an extra fun treat!!!!Wait wait forever!!!! Xovm

Cure for road rage

by BBBonnie on Nov 06, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I listen to this podcast mostly when I’m driving and if everyone would just listen to it when they drive, there would be no more road rage. My 13 year old daughter also loves it, too. She loved when Simone Biles and Tom Hanks were on. We learn a little and laugh a lot and with current events the way they are, well, we have to laugh to keep from crying, don’t we?

Slanted too far to the left

by Greg in NH on Nov 04, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Used to love this program but over the past couple of years it seems to be a "bash all views not in line with the Progressive/Left wing agenda". I am unsubscribing because, for a group that supposedly wants diversity and inclusion of all people, conservative and traditional viewpoints are mocked and unwelcome by the panelists and the host. Another reason many people call for defunding of NPR.

I love this show. it provides at least 15 minutes of conversation at every family gathering. I think they make my grandmother feel better about how awful Trump is and how her party isn't her political party anymore. anyway, thanks for giving me a way to connect with someone 70 years older than me -24 year old in Cambridge MA

I stopped listening to the news after the election. I don’t like trumps voice and “some” of the things he says makes me super angry. I get to hear the important things in 1 hour from the wwdtm crew. Thank you. Also play along with the quizzes. There will always be a Donald trump answer.

When things are their most bleak, humor is even more important. I enjoy being educated on current events while being entertained. I also enjoy hearing about some of the stranger news events throughout the week.

Before being a pod listener, we would try to catch this on local NPR radio Saturday’s. My son & I have listened for over 2 years. It’s a great combo of hosts, guests, news, & humor.

I listened to this show because it was lighthearted entertainment. Now it is the Trump ridicule hour. I am not a Trump supporter, but I would like to turn on the radio and hear about something other than Trump once in a while.

Use to be funny

This show use to be funny u til it became nothing but one sided politics. I don’t have any side because I’m so tired of hearing crap that we can’t control. Everything is biased. Come on guys, please go back to the time when it was t all Republican bashing.

Trump is the worst thing to this once clever podcast.

by Jfcbsvbjjffbk on Oct 23, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

We get it already Trump is a white supremacist Nazi who revels in stealing healthcare from the weak. This once clever podcast has devolved to a contest where hosts and guests compete to mist cleverly repeat this one idea over an over.I can’t be the only one who thinks this is just overkill. Can I?

This is a seriously dangerous podcast. A few days each week, I walk or jog a 5K track around a local golf course through a wildlife preserve. Listening to WAIT WAIT..., there has been more than one occasion on which--during the walk/jog--I've had to stop and lie down by the side of the road I was laughing so hard. When this happens, fellow pedestrians, rabbits and herons stop and look at me like: "Dude..."

I love the banter with the panelists and the great connection Peter Sagal has with the guests. I especially love Bill Curtis’s intro of himself - always hilarious. I recommend the show to anyone I know who listens to podcasts.
