NPR's best programming!
Amazing show! Carl Kasell and Peter Sagal are a humorous team that take the week's news point out the irony, discontinuity, or radicalness. The panel adds comedy to the mix, and together, they are the best way to enjoy the week's events. In my opinion, the Paula Poundstone episodes are the best.
The Best NPR Show EVER!
I know there are a lot of NPR geeks like me out there, and this is the one show that no one should miss. It's a great way to stay informed and be entertained as well. I used to work in the news industry (kinda still do, but that's another story), and the news gets ver depressing. News just seems to be a endless cycle of war, violence, death, famine and pestilence (had to get all four horsemen in there). WWDTM is the water skiing squirrel of NPR. No matter how bad the news gets, you know it will be there to cheer you up. Adam might argue this, but I also feel like you learn something from it as well. So, download and enjoy!
This makes the whole concept of a podcast worthwhile to me.
