Very entertaining!!
I use to listen to Wait Wait on NPR. I found this podcast and itโ€™s the best. I can listen whenever I want to, as many times as I like. You have such great guests and panelists. Mo, Alonzo and Paula are my favorite panelists...love them ๐Ÿ’™

So rare to find joy in news let alone tears of laughter
I love the way the cast interacts and how I finally feel useful for knowing bizarre news items more than hard news. I tried to change my friendโ€™s phone ring to Bill singing โ€˜beans beans beans beans beans!โ€™ Still attempting to sneak it on there and will one day be successful in your honor, Wait wait.

My longest running podcast, literally
Iโ€™ve been listening for twenty years. The complaints here of โ€œrecentโ€ partisanship are ridiculous. The show has ALWAYS been liberal. Whatever! I donโ€™t leave mean reviews on Fox News or, worse, InfoWars... even thought they deserve pretty much all the condemnation that comes their way for the damage theyโ€™ve done to American politics. As far as the sexist and racist comments about panelists, letโ€™s just say there are trolls here spending time trying to poison folks against a show that makes the news digestible enough for me to not puke about the horrible things happening in the world day and night. And I might as well say #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo. If those offend you, you should just skip the show and let the rest of us enjoy it in peace.

Love this show!
I am a twelve year old I have been listening to wait wait on road trips and while I do chores for several years and it is still hilarious. For those who think it is too left leaning and donโ€™t agree with their views thatโ€™s fine just donโ€™t listen you donโ€™t have to right a nasty review. Also what do you mean enough of Negin she is hilarious. This show makes the bad news funny ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Needs a laugh track.
Needs a laugh track. I donโ€™t like hearing no one laugh at the jokes. You added an audience to clap, but now you need to add an audience to laugh. Itโ€™ll enhance the show.

Mostly funny
Good line up of mostly funny players. Please try to steer clear of too much overt partisanship or potty humor that makes it uncomfortable

I love love love this NPR show for over 25 years
A staple on Saturday mornings now I will never miss the show when Iโ€™m not in my car! I adore this group of players, Peter is just charming, lovely host, Bill is iconic with the quips. Paula Poundstone I adore, seeing her for the first time in Columbia, South Carolina in 1984 where she was doing standup. Well, thanks for reading all this and letting me just GUSH! Never called in or wrote in till now but my love for this show is infinite! John, Miami Beach

Thank you NPR
Bill Curtis and Peter Sagal Do a great job bringing out the irony in the news. I love the way that you make fun of the president, itโ€™s great! Thanks for keeping me positive and entertained during the hurricane that is my life. Thank you NPR and WBEZ in Chicago

Excellent!
This is just a great podcast if you like current events, trivia and comedy. I have my favorite panelists, but everyone is fantastic and brings their own take on the news. And the guests they get are also amazing.
A Hilarious Listen Always!
Sometimes I have to pull my car over to the side of the road
Danger! Too many laugh out loud moments.The hosts have great timing with the culturally diverse, rotating cast of hysterically smart comedians. These folks have become my favorite podcast-friends over the years. Also gives me lots of wacky-but-true conversation starters.

Disappointed
I usually enjoy this show but the Biden bashing at the beginning of todayโ€™s show was unnecessary. I turned it off.

Weekly Dose of Fun
Wanna stay informed of news without crying or running for cover? Lighten it up with WWDTM. A barrel of laughs and interviews with some seriously witty people. Listen to it in public to make people wonder why you are smiling so much and laughing so hard.

Thanks
Loved hearing Dulce Sloan on the show! Looking forward to hearing her again. And also appreciate introducing me to Tracy Clayton, I just subscribed to her podcast. Youโ€™ve added many fresh voices to the the show.

Great take on current events
The news has been difficult to digest especially the last few years but WWDTM has always put a funny spin on it. The entire team is awesome; great chemistry, writing and production. This is a great show to listen to with all of the joking and punning. Love it!

Good on Sunday
I look forward to my Sunday mornings with this show! It makes quarantine just a little bit happier.

Love you
Iโ€™ve been a fan of WWDTM for years. I look forward every week to a chance to laugh about the news. Thanks for hanging in there. And reviewers, whatโ€™s with all the complaints about womenโ€™s laughter. Lay off. No one needs to be shamed about how they laugh.
lady who loves to laugh
Please make...
...Jessi Klein, along with Helen Hong (another keeper), a permanent member of your panel. I particularly loved her sharp, understated quips (e.g., dementia tests and Hitler) in your recent podcast, but for the love of JFC spare us Negin!
Meat=Murder
So tired
Trump bashing. I used to enjoy the interesting and intelligent banter. Now this program is just sad, old and tired. Nothing new or intelligent.

Out of touch!
Kasell and the panel are completely out of touch. Itโ€™s always been a left leaning show but you all have gone off the edge. Itโ€™s no longer funny.

That LAUGH ๐Ÿ˜ต
Is it a rule that all female comedians on this show must have absolutely horrible, loud, obnoxious laughs?! You guys are Zooming now. Please mute Negin when she laughs!

This was a very foul show! You have gotten to the bottom of the list for players it seems. This was such a family show but you players have started to challenge each other as to who can be the most tasteless and foul mouthed. Their middle school humor references a Titicaca water frog is below the line of an adult humorist. Please step up the players...
Hope fior Change
Love the show. Always have. But...
PLEASE Helen, stop that obnoxious cackle! Geez.
Bschora
Laugh less loudly
Engine fasaed and Helen Hong pleas tone down your laughter
capitoa fan
Love Wait,Wait!
I love wait, wait donโ€™t tell me, but allow me to echo anotherโ€™s request........More Paula Poundstone please!
MsCatquick
Luv the show and
... almost all of the guest comedians are super great and can make you laugh out loud, but occasionally some try to steal the spotlight and comment on every little thing, which can be annoying. My personal favorites are Alonzo Boden, Paula Poundstone, Tom Bodett, Amy Dickinson, Luke Burbank, Roxanne Roberts... shoot theyโ€™re all good!
Imarebel123
So good
But I have to agree with another review and Neginโ€™s laugh. Itโ€™s so terrible and I canโ€™t listen to those episodes either. And sheโ€™s not funny.
