Best Podcast on Air

I wait every week hoping there is a new show. The panelists are always witty without being crass, and they can't complain that the news isn't giving them a lot to make fun of.

So, so intelligently funny.

This show is the reason I started listening to podcasts. I just can't get enough of these guys and their guests. My favorite thing is seeing how well I paid attention during the week when they ask news related questions. OK, I'm wrong, my favorite part is bluff the listener.

A highlight of every weekend

Even when it's bad, it's very, very good. The sharp-witted panelists (most of whom only show up for unpredictable programs) make this current-events (and sometimes whacky) quiz show a mind-tickler. The few "prizes" are awarded to a handful of called-in listeners and the points panelists earn for them are typically for panelists answering comedic or news-based questions. Winners get voice-mail messages read for their answering machines by Carl Kassel, the elocutionary erstwhile presenter of "Morning Edition"; no $64,000 prizes here. But it's all in good fun, offers lots of laughs, as well as a self-challenging current events quiz.

Almost a great show. Love it!

Extremely intelligent blend of comedy and trivia games. I gave it 4 stars because of the constant bashing of Trump. A joke is only funny a few times. The answer to the first question of the show is “Donald Trump” 9 out of 10 Times. And what about their conservative audience? Does the show want to alienate 50% of Americans? If you want to poke political fun you should poke at both sides.

Love It! Informative, ridiculous, and unapologetic. News mixed with lighthearted playfulness that makes it easier to assimilate. Can't get enough!

A quiz show that uses the despair of our current situation to bring laughs is just what we all need. Love Peter a lot, he is witty.

Non-depressing way to keep up with News!

These guys are hilarious, and lately they have been more inclusive with their panel than ever. They recently had (gasp!) a female comedian take over for Peter on a vacation day. Keep it up!

Hostess with the not so mostest

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

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. If you enjoy dad jokes and also enjoy The Big Bang Theory than this show is for you. Otherwise steer clear!

Hilarious and informative

by Asuranaga on Sep 22, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

My favorite way to catch up on the week's news, because it's in a fun trivia format. I always listen to the last section right before trivia nights and then kill it at current events. So thanks!

Wait Wait was my first subscribed podcast

by ダイチャン on Sep 22, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Wait Wait was the first podcast I ever subscribed to and with very good reason. Peter Sagal does a wonderful job bringing a comical spin to the weekly news in this quiz show. The panel of rotating writers, comics, commentators, etc. showcase their quick wits with their guesses to the questions or responses on the answers. I love how this is both educational and entertaining.

Love it!!

The Trump Bashing is getting old

by Cooks44andU on Sep 20, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Ok, I get it, you hate Trump. I hate him too, but I'm tired of hearing about it. Trump bashing is low hanging fruit and unfortunately it continues to grow. Can you please find another topic. I'm growing bored of the constant Trump bashing.

Good, but too lefty

by nhdubliner on Sep 20, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

If you have a smug feeling of superiority and enjoy jokes in urban contexts involving Chardonnay, you won't mind the political leanings of this show. These guys are very funny and talented, but make no bones playing to their NPR hard left audience. For centrists and conservatives, this weekly show is totally unlistenable.

As important as my morning cup of coffee

It's beyond good. Smart, funny, and informative. It's apart of my morning commute to work and gets me through the day. Can't tell you how many times I would sit in my car after arriving until I finish the episode. It's a daily must.

Peter is the best host imaginable for this amazingly hilarious show, and the diverse panel members are always a treat. A nice bonus of listening to the show weekly is that I always feel a bit smarter and funnier than I really am.

I listen to this while I walk the dog and therefore am that guy laughing loudly to himself in the street at seemingly nothing. At least it keeps people from wanting to talk to me.

Put them out to pasture...

by GrammarKing on Sep 12, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

There are episodes of Wait Wait that are genius and some that fall flat due to the panelists. I understand that some of the contributors of WWDTM have been guests for years, but it is past retirement time for a few. Roy Blount, Jr. is NEVER funny. Tom Bodett and PJ O'Rourke have their moments, but they certainly should NOT be on the same episode. There needs to be a limit of ONE old white man on the panel per episode. Honestly, it gets uncomfortable listening to them stammer and blunder nonscensical "jokes" at times. I love the show and have listened for years but the success of the humor definitely depends on the mix of the panel. Please keep a diverse cast of contributors! Keep finding new talent! Keep appealing to younger audiences! Please don't let this show go the Pairie Home Companion route.

Great show getting tiresome

by Roman Gent on Sep 07, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

This has been one of my favorite weekly podcasts for many years. It is starting to get a little tiresome and boring with the continual political bashing. There is more going on than Trump. I offer this opinion as someone who does not particularly support Trump, either.

Love this show

The only problem with WWDTM is that they sometimes go on vacation. But I love every minute of this show every week.

I love this show and have listened to nearly every episode. It would be the perfect listen if not for Roxanne. I don't find that she fits into the spirit of the show or has a comedic style befitting of the other panelists she usually presents with. It's rare that she makes me laugh. Most all of the other panelists are incredible.
