Similar to NPR's Wait Wait...
If you like NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, then you should like this as well. Only problem is they discuss some English topics that most American's don't know anything about.
There may be some topics that American listeners are unfamiliar with, but the humor transcends this. It is plain funny!
Awesome... long awaited!
One of the funniest shows on BBC4, right up there with "Just a Minute" and "The Now Show"; i have waited a painfully long time for this show to be available as a download. Though you can listen to reruns of Just a Minute and The News Quiz on BBC7, there are some episodes you wish to download for a personal collection. Maybe BBC4 would smarten up and offer Just a Minute, Genius etc for download as well. Here is a taste: (this section requires the panel to give alternate meanings of common words) "Arsenic: Ahh i just sat on a razor!" "Dossier: A French trap".
