So many reruns

Too many repeats and then they make a clip show? Ugh

O!phira (AKA Her Ripe Begonias)

by Longjing54 on Oct 20, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

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 I’ve 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 contestant’s or interviewee’s answer is unexpected. And it’s from Brooklyn; how much better could it be?

Funny and nerdy--I never miss it

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. :)

Love it

Inventive, funny game show

If you can’t listen to it in your radio, listen to it here. It’s not necessarily beholden to the week’s news like WWDTM, and it’s always witty.

Good show

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 extension to NPR’s entertaining quiz shows

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

My first experience with Ask Me Another was from a short ad from Wait Wait Don’t 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.

End the vocal fry!

Great idea but can the host get some voice lessons to get rid of her vocal fry? It’s so annoying!

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.

Egads! This podcast is wonderful

by Decor Colubridae on Sep 04, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

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.

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.

So much fun

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.

Even the kids are obsessed!

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.

Trivia & Music Fun!

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!

Fan, but....

by Sheepdoggydogg on Jul 21, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

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.

If you're the kind of person who enjoys shouting answers at your phone/tablet/computer, this is the podcast for you. Word games, song satires, and interesting interviews with interesting people; Ask Me Another has everything your inner word-nerd desires.

Too many reruns

by johnyb76 on Jun 26, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

This is a great podcast, bu there are too many reruns. I would rather have fewer episodes than lots of reruns. Also, Art Chung needs to go. I feel as though he throws the awesome dynamic betweem Ophira & Jonathan. Otherwise, this is a great podcast.

New Format Still Good

Great trivia. Easy to play along with as the contestants fumble through categories they're not famliar with. The best are the word games where the mash things together, no one gets it and they know it. When you get one of those, it's the absolute best.

Love this show and its hosts, especially Ophira. I love the quirky guests and the humor is in line with mine. I enjoy mystery guest probably the most. It's one of the trivia shows where I feel like I could stand a chance actually answering some of the questions. Keep on keeping on 😎

Great! But too many reruns.

I absolutely love the show. It is my very favorite podcast. I listen to it every week, and that's why I find it so frustrating that there are so many reruns. Guys, I listen to the show every week. There's not much replay value in a quiz show, I already know the answers.

I NEVER write reviews, but I want to spread the name of this show around. I takes a lot to make me laugh, but I usually can't stop laughing while listening to this. It's whitty and informative and Jonathan is a great musician. Opheria and all the co-hosts are hysterical. I hope one day I get to see it in person. I love the job everyone does. Keep up the great work! The world needs for laughter.

Great show. Too many re-runs and not clearly labeled

by onesmartprimate on May 24, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

The hosts are great and funny and the trivia is interesting and fun, but the show often re-runs recent episodes that are not clearly numbered or labeled as other NPR shows are so it can be hard to tell whether you've heard it before until you wasted time before realizing you know all of the questions and answers.

Great podcast

Are used to look forward to the show every week. After a while I noticed that I had already heard this episode before. It became more and more apparent that all the episodes I was currently listening to where ones that I had already heard. Did NPR cancel the show?
