Takes the edge off

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 best way to get the week's news

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.

Can't Do Without!

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!

Great, great game show.

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

Good, But too Bias

by montele4 on Feb 13, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

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.

Bigots and hypocrites

by Sì pò on Feb 12, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

The panelists make hate full comments all in the name of comedy but never would do it with the past administration. The times they did slightly mock all political views I found those episodes to be the best. Instead the show supports a lot of liberal leaning morons as the likes of Lena Dunham who has openly admitted to molesting her own sister! Just as people hate trump for the things he has said it's nothing in comparison to what Lena has done. I hate this double standard that the show has. Then they can't understand why people voted for Donald trump. I find myself liking the show less and less because I feel as if I am getting preached to instead of entertained.

Your not so serious news show

Great way to learn all the news, even things you didn't think you needed to know. Love Paula Poundstone!

Why so down on TED Radio Hour?

I really enjoy this podcast but don't quite understand why they are so down on TED radio hour? Asking for a friend ;)

Used to be funny

I am not a conservative. I didn't vote for Trump. But I can't take the bashing anymore. Haven't listened for years and now I've deleted it from my podcast list. It's mean spirited in a not funny way. Audience laughter sounds forced and nervous. It wasn't like this before.

They should call it "wait let's do stupid Trump jokes"

by ixworks on Jan 29, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Just more hateful liberal propaganda. It was funny until they decided if they can't have that war-criminal HRC, they would enlist Hollywood elites with a bone to pick and just take swipes at Trump. Not Hillarys War voting record that created ISIS, not the refugees raping people because a religious book says it's okay. Can't joke about those things, huh?

Yet another amazing and beloved show from my childhood (i'm only 34 but...) I love listening to the program, Paula Poundstone was the first commedian I saw in person (age 14) because of hearing her on the radio on this program. Thank you so much for bringing me such joy every week! <3

Promised myself I'd give it a fair shot, that just because it was NPR it wasn't going to be liberal propaganda. First thing, very first thing. Trump supporter bashing. Guess I'll find a different podcast.

Not so funny now

by Polyhymnia on Jan 02, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I've been subscribed to this podcast for years and enjoyed the jokes at news and politics. Lately, however, it doesn't bring many laughs. They don't seem to be able to sort out what is funny and what isn't. I am unsubscribing.

Peter and Bill are great hosts and I've enjoyed all the panelists especially Paula and Amy! I look forward to this podcast every week. They manage to deliver the news to you in a very unique and funny way! I have especially enjoyed the many Trump jokes. I've had the opportunity to go to a couple of live shows and they are even better! Great job!

10/10 Is Cray

by Neuvoxraiha on Dec 23, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

I listen to this for three reasons. 1: The Panel banter. 95% of the time it's hysterical and I can relate. 2: I like to compete at Lightning Fill In The Blank with my husband and crush him the way Faith crushes the competition. 3: Defeating aforementioned husband during Bluff the Listener. It occurs to me that I am super competitive about this show and should go see a therapist about it....

Always Funny - A Must-Listen

I look forward to this show every week. They have three great comedians on the panel every week, and even the host qualifies. It's a wonderful humorous take on the week's news, plus strange events you may have missed, like car-licking moose or the Southwest flight where the passengers drank all the alcohol.

Hateful liberals

It used to be funny. It's just too hateful if you aren't a liberal atheist.

'Best of' episodes are the worst.

by TheBRADLeyB on Dec 19, 2016
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

If you like the show and NPR you'll dig the podcast but they'll push out 'best of' episodes and smaller clips from the show they call bonus episodes but I call them garbage.

The holocaust is not funny

In the Garth brooks episode, the panel repeatedly makes holocaust jokes in reference to the Trump administration. Wow... NPR is pathetic.

Wait Wait has been my Sunday morning ritual for over 13 years. Even in the years that I have left the US and living in South Africa, it is still my preferred way to year about the going on. The quality of guests, diaglogue, jokes, and interactions between the panalists and hosts are very high. I hope it never stops!

This is by far one of the most entertaining podcasts out there and I make sure to tune in every week. With that said, the amount of liberal bias that was shown throughout the entire election cycle and which continues now post-election is EXHAUSTING. Maybe have some counter opinions every once in a while, it won't kill ya ;-)
