I work full time with a one hour commute, have a baby, and attend college part time. I don't have time to watch tv or news. This podcast keeps me up to date on world happenings while cracking me up all at the same time. Absolutely love starting my day with it. All of the people on the show are so entertaining.
LOVE LOVE THIS SHOW...BILL KURTIS ADDS A LOT TO THE SHOW...LOVE PETER...CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT LIVE IN MICHIGAN
Fun - from seriousto ridiculous news. Love the hosts and the panelists. I look forward to this every week.
If you want topical funny smart repartee, it would be hard to top WWDTM.
This show is fantastic, there are many times that I'll start randomly giggling at my desk at work.
Family friendly but with a cynical twist of weird news and good natured guests. It's fun to play along and try to guess the answers to questions and then laugh when both you and the radio guest get it wrong. If you ever browse Reddit you'll feel right at home as most of these trivia questions come from the front page of r/all.
Now that the show has one agenda it has grown tiresome. Was funny the first few months but move on and become what you were again.
Always funny and keep you informed of current events.
Wait Wait is a great show. It is humerous and entertaining, but also brings the weeks news to listerners. Live shows are great fun!
The best ways to listen to news and get a laugh!
If you only have time to listen to one podcast this is the one you want. I never miss it. Entertaining, informative, and laugh out loud funny.
A show my whole family loves
The best radio show! So much fun intellect smarts kindness in one place!!!
I'm a devourer of all things NPR from listening to my local affiliate during my commutes to subscribing to most of their podcasts. I cannot for the life of my get into this show, which is all due to the host. His persona grates on my and his scripted, corny jokes are the worst.
I love the show and am a longtime subscriber. Hate the pickle mint bonus episode and the whole concept behind it. Don't fill my feed with junk unrelated to the show. I'll return to 5 stars when I see you've abandoned this Very Bad Idea.
Why did you just put out a 5 minute episode about eating a pickle which had nothing to do with the show?! Oh I know, to jack up your download numbers and put another ad in my ear.I subscribed to the Wait Wait show, not to stupid news stories about eating a pickle and additional ads.
Get it while the funding is still there!!
I just listened to the Tom Hanks hosted episode. He totally rocked it!!!!!! Please have him host again. Thanks
That's it. It's Absolutely Essential To Experience.
This show is the highlight of my listening week. By far my favorite podcast -- entertaining and informative all in one!
I never owned a car, and I never had a commute with access to radio, so I missed out on the experience of discovering this show while tuning into NPR until much later in life. Thankfully, my loved ones recognized that Wait Wait would be right up my alley and recommended it in droves, and this actually became my very first podcast subscription. Now I'm addicted and podcasts have taken over my life and I've stopped reading books and playing video games on my commute. But as far as life-altering addictions are concerned, I suppose I could do far more harm than podcasts. Thanks for starting me on the road to addiction, Wait Wait!
Wait Wait is the most enjoyable podcast available! I can't wait for Sunday mornings so I can download my fresh episode and get my day off to a wonderful start.
I've been a fan for decades. Jesse Kline brings the show to a whole new level. Edgier and more fun than ever!!
Peter is honestly hilarious ok and I love the episodes with bobcat golthwait it's so funny
So I have become engulfed in anything Politics and I appreciate this podcast with its light humor and just changes my attitude! Really makes me smile! Definitely worth the listen!!!
Very funny, very far to the left, try to be a little more balanced. Make fun of both even.
Why is this in comedy catagory? We get it bbc is lonely in the trash section. We get it public funded radio doesnt like Pres. Trump! Sounds awesome doesnt it?Say it with me President Trump!!
Consistently sharp, witty, engaging and hilarious week after week.
I LOVE this show! Amazingly clever comedy, hilarious off-the-cuff comments, and great review of the week's news. If you want to get to know famous people, forget People magazine, listen to this show every week.
until Trump won and now it's become overly political; obviously slanting to the left, as I've unfortunately come to expect from all NPR programming. This is so unfortunate because I really used to enjoy this show, but now I just shake my head in disappointment as I hear them fire off criticism after criticism against our current president; far more than our last "president". Why does a game show have to be so political anyways? They've lost a listener. If you're a libertarian or conservative, don't waste your time....
Never fails to make me laugh, AND I learn something each week. Besides, who knew Bill Curtis had a sense of humor?
Love this show!
I always looked forward to listening to WWDTM every Saturday and now with this newfangled technology, I can binge on hours and hours of episodes!
You will never regret listening to this podcast.
I had to take a serious break from all the news & NPR, so I'm leaving it up to Peter to let me know if something really serious happens that I need to know about.
Funny and topical.
Good way to take the edge off the weekly news. I enjoy when Paula Poundstone holds Peter Sagal's reported "studies" up to the microscope.
The best podcast ever!! I need to laugh everyday! and who doesn't right? I look forward to this every week and I hate when it ends. I listen to the podcast so that I can savor it. I just wish there was more than one a week.I'm sure Peter will say that if WWDTM is what keeps me sane then I'm in a whole lot of trouble!! :) With all the crazy stuff that is going on around us they all help me get through the week. It gives me hope!! Love you guys and keep doing what you are doing!Zehra
Laughing at Trump... it is so tired. I'm about ready to cut off the subscription because the comedy is so lazy. I love the show. Try a little harder please?
The news these days is so awful that the only way I can absorb it is between jokes on this show. It's always great.
It is so much fun to recap the week's events thru this podcast!
My weekend isn't complete until I've heard this show - whether on the radio when I'm out doing my Saturday errands or later as a podcast. Most of the time, even if I've caught the radio version I listen to the podcast to catch the nuances I may have missed. Outstanding comedic commentary!
this is without a doubt my favorite podcast. I can't wait for Saturday is to come around. You do a great job thank you
It's an entertaining podcast, and if you're a liberal, you will absolutely love it. But, as someone who is very close to the middle, it can get old to just hear them repeatedly bash Trump. Not that I'm overly sensitive about it, but I'd rather I'd rather hear more unbiased talking points. People have different views, different opinions, and this show should be more open to that, rather than essentially having people that don't share their disdain constantly condescended. It's ruining what would be a fun show...and alienating anyone with a different political view.
Want to know why trump won? Listen to this show.
