30 minutes of laughter
The Now Show and the News Quiz match up with the best news/variety/comedy shows on this side of the pond. Hilarious stuff. Yes, unless you're really up on UK politics, you're going to get lost sometimes but that doesn't detract from the podcast. This is one of my favortite podcasts. The only bad thing about it, it's only half an hour long.
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".
God I love this show !
I set aside a portion of every friday evening with my wife and we listen to and enjoy this show very much. Its wonderfully irreverent, genuinely funny and brilliantly topical.
