This podcast was recommended to me when I was going through some tough medical issues. It kept my mind off of things and made me laugh and happily play along. If you like puzzles, trivia and fun interviews, you'll love this show.
Perfect light listening for nerds of all kinds! I am a loyal listener.
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 ð
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 travel around the globe and love games that make you think quickly. I get to challenge my brain, keep current on the arts and news with the guests stars and play along. I truly enjoy Ask Me Another!
This is wonderfully funny production. The hosts, the celebrity guests, but also, amazingly, the contestants are hysterical. The word puzzles are great! Don't miss it.
The banter, the stories, the great voices, and the supremely fun puzzle/games make this one of my absolute favorite podcasts!
Jonathan Coulton is awesome.
This show is super entertaining and fun. ðð
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.
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.
If you love wait wait don't tell me and trivia then you will like this the questions are fun and hardAnd no I'm not with NPR I wish I was but sadly no
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?
I am a self-proclaimed nerd. I love puns. This show is right up my alley and I play along to every game (aloud and enthusiastically) . I recently discovered my husband does not enjoy the show- he's just nerdy in a different way I suppose- a lame one. I always skip the special guest time because that's boring to me, I just want more nerdy games!!
If you enjoy trivia, this is for you. I found this show when it first came out and I look forward to it every week. The games are always clever and usually make me laugh. Love the hosts!
Listening to the contestants miss general knowledge answers about anything before 2000 was painful, although a few bits were entertaining. Too gosh-we-ARE-having-fun for me. To be fair, Iâm not the target audience.
I wish it came out twice a week.
I've been listening to this show since the first season, and my kids love listening to it, too. Biggest problem is that it seems like every other episode is now "explicit", so I won't let my kids listen. Wish I could just get the radio edit.
AMA is always a great time--great games, silly songs, and perplexing puzzles! But this last episode--magician Penn Gillette AND a Muppetter!?! Are you kidding me!!?BEST! EPISODE! EVER!
Funny and entertaining brain stumpers. I look forward to each week's episode.
This is such a confluence of interests. Trivia, puzzles, Jonathan Coulton and the witty jokes from Ophira. I'm constantly surprised by how good this show is.
This podcast has saved me from many an awkward car ride. Funny!!
This would be wonderful if it was just a quiz show, but the hostess often has on guests who are pushing a sexual political agenda which they all share.Too bad. If the hostess changes, I may give this podcast another chance someday.
love this show............I love how the audience helps make the show...love the cast too
I like the new format with just four contestants. I enjoy the hosts having to figure out the mystery guest. Always a good time.
The games are more funny than challenging, but it is entertaining. Bugs me that Her Ripe Begonias is unable to say every syllable in "ask me another is sponsored by."
I listen to this all the time; I like most of the games and guests. Ophira Eisenberg is smart and just a little darker than other hosts, which I love. Jonathan Coulton shows his high level of creativity and skills with customized songs nearly every week.Also: become a member of your local public radio station.
Great word games and trivia I am just a kid but I love ask me another
This is such a fun and light-hearted quiz show to listen to as I relax on the weekends. Witty banter, interesting mix of guests, and quirky puzzles. Just the perfect mix
A great game show and listen that can be enjoyed by all during a road trip or lazy Saturday afternoon.
I love the hosts and their easy sense of humor. The creativity of the games this show comes up with always keeps me entertained. I love the themes, it makes for relaxed listening with plenty of laughs. I am always impressed with their game inspirations and how well it all comes together! Give this show a listen!
Overall, I think this show is terrific. The host, Ophira Eisenberg, is quick-witted and very funny. The musical portion is provided by Jonathan Coulton, who is also witty and funny.The only thing that drives me crazy is Ophira's atrocious enunciation of words. She says some of them so quickly that she skips syllables. Three examples: (1) the show has a person called a "puzzle guru," but she says "guru" so quickly that it comes out as "grew." (2) "some more" comes out as "smore." (3) "support" comes out as "sport."
The only thing sad about this show is when it ends and I have to wait another week for a new episode. Fun, snappy word games and trivia and I love the banter between Ophira , Jonathan and their guests. A delightful show that I save for the weekend so I can really enjoy it with a cup of tea and time off my feet. Just can't say enough how consistently good this show is!
I used to listen to every episode, but I find myself lately only really interested in episodes with guests I either recognize, or which I'm interested in learning more about. The games are fun but after awhile they and the contestants start to sound the same so you're not missing much if you skip an episode here or there.
When I get in the car with my 10 year old son for the long ride to school, he asks for my phone to cue up the latest episode of Ask Me Another. It's funny, entertaining, and, occasionally, gently scandalous. It's also an effective antidote for the stress of Boston traffic; it's hard to maintain a convincing level of self-righteous indignation while laughing and grinning like an idiot. Now, when people cut me off while flipping the bird, I just grin louder; and victory is mine.
Itâs funny and witty, and the quizzes are simple and easy to play along with. Itâs perfect for the occasional pick-me-up.
As Me Another is the highlight of our radio listening weekend. Smart, funny, entertaining- can't get much better than that!
A meh substitute for Wait Wait, it's okay but the banter isn't great.
More than a quiz. It squeezes in some topical commentary in a well produced format and poses questions in a thoughtful, entertaining manner. An unpretentious genre of thinking person's radio entertainment.
I love this podcast. Funny, clever games and interesting guests!
Full of well-constructed puzzles, games and trivia.
Funny, challenging and interesting, word games nerds(?) and it is still really funny. Its my favorite podcast!
Since I can't bear to listen to the news any longer, I'm distracting myself with fun and interesting podcasts. Such a great show to stumble across...Makes my commute better. Keep it up!
I find this podcast both entertaining and challenging.
Hilarious and smart!
I love this. They are really funny! I listen to it to try to go to sleep but I'm just cracking up the whole time ð¤£
This is an amazing Podcast. It gives you trivia, word play, music, comedy, and a cast of fantastic players whose unique personalities and senses of humor make any long car ride enjoyable and entertaining.Great assortment of guests.
This program is full of fun word games that make me think a bit. Interactive humor while I'm on the bus going to work. I download the programs as soon as they come out. The amount of creativity and intelligence that goes into the games is incredible. The show's musician Jonathan Coulton is so talented and the host Ophira Eisenberg cracks herself up with witty puns. After the program I've occassionally read up on their guests. It's quite an interesting and vast array of people and vocations.
I don't find this particularly, clever, funny or entertaining. Seems very awkward.
