I really enjoy the guests, the interplay between Ophira and Johnathan as well as the other regular crew, and the creative approach that this show takes with the concept of "quiz show." Listen, you won't be disappointed!
I like word problems and trivia. I listened to this show until I got tired of the conservative bashing. I want to hear word problems and trivia. I would resubscribe if they would stay out of politics.
If you like trivia and music, youâll enjoy this show. The celebrity guests are cool surprises as well!
AMA is great fun (although I am biased for having been on it). The hosts are amazing and the puzzles are very well crafted. If you are a word or trivia nerd, this is the show for you! Thanks to Ophira and JoCo and everyone that makes the show possible! It is a super good show for car rides with other puzzle-y people!
Love the trivia and rapport that Ophera has with contestants and show guests.
Ask me Another is one of my favorite podcast. Encompassing everything I like, humor, music, unrehearsed celebrity interviews, challenging trivia/games, and the chance to win a Rubix cube! The episode with Patrick Stewart is a classic. Thank you for the entertainment from and Anagrams..ArmerNutBob
Getting to listen to this podcast makes driving Anywhere with Anyone in my car seem like a treat. Thatâs how much i enjoy it! I haven't had to talk to my brother,(Awkward!) or to any of the other people that i sometimes just HAVE to put up with being in MY space; sometimes they even become entertaining because if the content of the show/podcast! Thank You, NPR!!
I love these guys!! This show is hilarious and way to much fun to play along to! The guests are great and Ophera and Jonathan are awesome!
Its one of my favorite podcasts. It has a little bit of everything and I love it.
I can't get enough of this podcast! It's fun and witty and interesting. If it could improve at all I would just want more of it. Ask me another please because I can't get enough!
If you were a fan of Games Magazine (still in print but not as good as its glory days) youâll like Ask Me Another. Word games, trivia, and the best contestants of any game show in history. (Okay, I was a contestant once. So sue me.)The games are fun and you might well find yourself yelling out the answers. The celebrity guests... well, theyâre usually somewhat obscure, but theyâre fun, which is really the point.And if you know why I used Her Ripe Begonias in the title, youâre probably already a fan.
Love listening to the weekly quiz show and absolutely love their variety of games. Jonathan does is an excellent musical presence and Ophira is the hostess with the mostest!
I love this show. You will laugh out loud while learning something new!
I loved the last two LA SHOWS with celebrities for contestants! This was so much more entertaining and funny. It was also great to hear Jonathan sing with Amy Mann! Loved those duets! Please do more like this.
We turn on our Bose every Saturday morning and make the entire household listen and we play along. The only reason to not sleep in! Also a great listen at work if I miss it on NPR
Of the dozens of podcasts I listen to regularly, this is the only one I can count on to consistently be an âupper.â Ophira Eisenberg is a delightful host whose understated comedic moderating is most welcoming to guests and listeners. Her sidekicks Art Chung and Jonathan Colton complete the podcastâs personality tripod, and together they present an entertaining and interesting experience.
Very entertaining! Love this show
So funny. Cracks me up!
I love this show. It never fails to make me laugh and shout out guesses while driving in my car.
I love playing along at home and listening to the great Jonathan Coulton on the guitar. Funny, smart, and top notch. Similar to Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me, but less politics and more nerdy trivia.
I was expecting a show aimed at 20-somethings. There is a lot of songs and references that even I get. How wonderful to listen, laugh, and be able to solve puzzles. The hosts and puzzle masters are a kick in the pants.
Too many repeats and then they make a clip show? Ugh
It took me awhile, but I now really love this show. It is nerdy, playful, and funny. Jonathan Coulton writes and plays the most amusingly excellent song parodies. Art Chung is first-rate puzzle guru-straight man. But best of all is O!phira Eisenberg, whose throaty laughter is so intelligent and sexy (hence the banger Iâve placed after the first letter of her name). She is such a great host for this show, playful and encouraging to contestants, a good interviewer of her guests, and always audibly delighted when a contestantâs or intervieweeâs answer is unexpected. And itâs from Brooklyn; how much better could it be?
I love this podcast and look forward to each episode!
Much nerd love to JoCo (with whom I worked soon after he released A Thing A Week), Opheira, and Art. The show is a true delight with fun games, intelligent questions, and wonderful guests. It brings a brightness to my week. :)
It's a great, fun podcast.
If you canât listen to it in your radio, listen to it here. Itâs not necessarily beholden to the weekâs news like WWDTM, and itâs always witty.
Interesting and entertaining
I like this show, when it's new. The recycle most of their shows either as a replay or best of program. There is maybe one entirely new show a month.
My first experience with Ask Me Another was from a short ad from Wait Wait Donât Tell Me. Similar in style, Ask Me is a quiz show, but instead of currents events, it focuses on pop trivia with a fun and nerdy spin. From the minds of the Puzzle Gurus (like Art Chung) whimsical puzzles or the musical parody challenges sung by Jonathan Coulton, Ask Me will keep you on you toes trying to guess every answer. Ophira Eisenberg does an amazing job keeping the show full of laughter and flow.
Great idea but can the host get some voice lessons to get rid of her vocal fry? Itâs so annoying!
If you have to choose only one NPR gameshow, pick this one.
Hosts are funny.
This is such a fun show. The trivia games can be challenging, and it's fun to compete with my husband on road trips. I also love the funny dialogue between Ophira, Jonathan and Art.
Makes me laugh and feeds my nerdy brain.
I am on the autism spectrum and this podcast is the most soothing one I listen to weekly.I also work in family therapy and while traveling between homes can always turn to Overripe Begonias for fast distress relief, engagement, intelligence and camaraderie. I also enjoy the occasional sardonic laugh. The creativity, substitution puns and warbling croons of Jonathan Coultan both arouses and puts me at ease. Art Chung's gentle game leading is always clear. The structure of Ask Me Another keeps me energized through a listen (or ten!) Outside of work I am a solitary person who enjoys solving problems and the song and puzzle games do not fail to engage my hands-on spirit as well as it gives me a sense of camaraderie.
AMA is my favorite escape from analysis of the craziness in DC. Thanks for the puns and laughs!!
Also great during the live performance
Love this show!
Made some changes and it's even better than before. Fun and clever!!!!
Better than free pizza on a roller-coaster at the rodeo.
This NPR quiz show is excellent. Word games, puzzles, trivia and live music. Really fun, educational and easy listening comedy. Started listening after the election and it has filled the hole from no longer being able to listen to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me... now that reality is too wild to satirize.
This show is so witty, hilarious, and fun. My favorite game show podcast and one of my favorite podcasts of any kind. Opheria and Jonathan are just great together and the games and contestants are wonderful too. Whenever it drops it goes right to the top of my queue.
We really love this podcast and take it with us whenever we are in the car. It's family friendly, lots of insightful information, and the topics are interesting enough to keep everyone's attention. My kids dream about one day going to Brooklyn just to be in the audience.
This is my go to podcast for drives that are over 45 minutes long. I also love the music they incorporate into the games. If you love trivia, you'll love this podcast.
This is currently my favorite podcast, even more than the one that I co-host! The quizes are great and I love Ophira's voice! So sultry! Johnathan's songs are pretty good,too! Look forward to it each week!
I'm a fan of the show, but Ophira Eisenberg is just not funny. Her jokes rarely land, and she relies way too much on the contestants (just regular people) to be funny for her. She just feels uncomfortable and awkward, and not in a good way. When I first listened to the show earlier this year, I thought to myself "Oh, this is a fun new show. The host isn't great, but i bet she gets better." I was amazed the find out the show has been running for FIVE YEARS. I honestly cannot believe she has t been replaced. Faith Salie guest hosted for one show, and it was about ten times better. The show itself isn't bad, but it could be improved with a better host.
Always entertaining and sometimes a mind bender.
This show is an anomaly. A temporal rift between our world and hell itself. Nothing but eternal suffering awaits you, if you do not heed my warning.
