Best programming on NPR
This show is half current events quiz, half satirical take on the news. The sum total is almost always very funny (although when Paula Poundstone is one of the guests, the funny quotient dips somewhat) and best of all, if the call-in contestents fail to answer correctly, they get no prize whatsoever. And the prize they are playing for? NPR newsman Carl Castle agreeing to voice their home answering machine message. If you like this show, you should check out Harry Shearer's "Le Show", also available on podcast.
Laugh out loud, smart and entertaning.
I have always been a fan of this show and I listen to it every Saturday, but its a hassle to plan out a time in the morning. I was so excited to see it on iTunes. The show takes some of the funniest people I have ever heard and tests their knowlege of the weeks news. I have even seen the show live in Chicago and they really know how to entertain. This is a must-hear with great content, cast, and ideas that will have you on the floor laughing.
Finally, podcasting for WWDTM
Thank goodness, in a week that brought us the SOTU speech by King George, there is something to be happy about: the podcasting of Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me. Thanks WBEZ and the folks at WWDTM.
