    Awsome I love it

    Maeve
    Maeve is almost single handedly keeping this ship afloat at this point. (Dulce also a welcome presence). Otherwise the humor feels increasingly stale, and the politics and worldviews increasingly dated and shortsighted. Longtime and semi-loyal listener with much love for the show, but think it is in need of some growing pains.

    More Maeve please I want more Maeve Higgins

    Even better with Andy Richter!
    As an original fan since’98, I’m listening to Andy Richter fill in for Bill on 3/16/24 and, no offense, but I want Andy to stay! Peter is fabulous with Andy’s energy— not having to deal with the bloated arrogance of ‘Bill’s character’ makes for a lighter, fresher, more entertaining show. Thanks WWDTM, thanks Peter, thanks Andy!

    Love the show.
    Have listened for years and look forward to it every week…don’t think I’ve missed any. Have a great Paula story…on the other hand , Maeve’s no-nothing comedy just isn’t funny. :-(

    I laugh out loud every episode!
    Definitely one of my favorite game shows of all time! I have to verify some of the stories, because they sound almost too ridiculous to be true, but they are almost always depressingly real. The host and guests do a fantastic job of making the weekly news a little bit less scary, and a lot funnier!

    Exceptional!
    Love the show for car rides and bedtime. Love Maeve Higgins, Paula Poundstone, and Dulce Sloan especially.
  • guy about to delete this app
    Love the show
    Great guests. Great celebrity players. Dulce Sloan though makes this really hard to listen to. She’s just not funny or clever. Less of her please.

    Used to be great .. now Shameful
    Used to love this show..regular listenener.. Absolutely mortified at the disregard for Jimmy Carter NOT FUNNY. Not comedy at all. I gave it more time and was shocked at the classless “comedy” coming out. Fully dissatisfied and very let down. So trashy. What a sad day Major let down. Find some class.
  • Reasonable liberal
    Great Show
    Dulce can be a bit much. This week was especially so

    Dulce Sloan is horrible
    Dulce Sloan’s opinions are idiotic and her voice and laughter make the episodes that she’s on unlistenable
  • Dragon#2012
    Awesome
    So great and funny! Love this show!!!Peter is the best!!!Also...STOP THE HATE COMMENTS!!!!!!!Stop hating on Dulce Sloan and Neguin Farsad!!!
  • Iatethelast mango inParis
    Jason Isbell extra ROCKS!
    I’ve loved WWDTM forever, but the Jason Isbell interview has to be my favorite. What a wonderful, self-depricatingly comedic human being.

    Been resubscribed through Apple since October, 2023
    It’s now February, 2024. Insulted and annoyed by constant reminders in WWDTM feed to resubscribe. Would you please acknowledge my resubscription? We have been dealing with illness; I have tried to get this straightened out. The podcast brings us joy. We support it and NPR. Show becoming perfunctory and a little less clean than before, for my taste, anyway…mushrooms, Feb. 13th mistress day? And Negin…it’s all been said. Always disappointed when she’s on. Totally skip is she hosts. Cringeworthy, but don’t mean she’s unworthy. Would love more Peter, Roxanne, Mo Rocca, Paula, Faith, Maeve.
  • Pinky & The Brian
    NPR’s Crowning Jewel!!!!
    Super-dee-duper show! Bill Kurtis and Peter Sagal are so much more a humorous team than Karl Kasell and Peter ever were, and they still manage to take each day’s news to point out the incongruousness, interregnum, or irrationality. The guests add humor to the mix, and collectively, they are the most outstanding method to savor the day’s affairs. In my judgement, the Mo Rocca, Tom Papa, Maz Jobrani and Dulce Sloan episodes are the most impressive.
  • saljohar
    Listen every week
    Love this show! I do have to say, as a native Oregonian, that I think on the February 10 show in the Bluff the Listener game you meant “Hermiston,” not “Hermiton.” 🙂
  • The one who loves dolls
    I love this show!
    When I go to the car with my dad I always ask him to play Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me! It is such a funny show and not all shows make me laugh as hard as this one.🤪😜So I kindly thank Bill Curtis (idk if I spelled it right) And Peter Sycle (again,dont know if I spelled it right) For producing such a funny show. I like to guess answers abif I was one of the players. Again thank you for bringing fun into the world of podcasts. Also , I’m reading the reviews and many people are being hateful towards ningún farsad. So I kindly ask you to stop and ignore hate comments

    I love Dulce Sloan!
    In response to “Great Except . . .”: Dulce Sloan is such a great addition to the show.
  • Natronomatrix 3000
    Great, except…
    Please, no more Dolce Sloan! Just terrible whenever she speaks!
  • honolululistenet
    SOUND QUALITY
    Love the show …but the brassy sound tone and constant echo are unlistenable . Please fix the sound quality!!

    The claimed date published is incorrect
    The last episode was not available in app OR on wait wait’s own website until well after Dec 30. Please put the correct episode info

    Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me
    I love your show! I look forward to each new episode. I would like to suggest you use Alonzo Slade as substitute host when Peter is away. Nicky Farsade is obnoxiously annoying and not funny at all. She reminds me of a hyperactive seven year old with an unpleasant voice. Otherwise thanks for being on the radio: a true breath of fresh air and something to make us laugh!
  • ecbpdx
    Chiming in on Chee…
    Please ask Karen Chee to tone down her delivery. She’s witty and a good host, but the grating squeals spoil the show. Add Neguin Farsad to that. Please, Guest Hosts, your listeners don’t want tinnitus.
  • Sir potato IV
    Amazing
    Actually really good and funny nice for car rides and stuff good overall especially with Paula poundstone
  • Dugmar
    Great show
    Peter is a pro. Bill is fantastic. Guests are great. Just skip the episodes that Negin Farsad hosts. Absolutely horrible, poorly timed attempts at humor.
  • pojklss
    Again?
    I’m sure Emma Choi is a delightful individual,but hosting is not her forte. As with her spin off show a little while back,her recent hosting of the regular show made it almost intolerable. Other than that the show as a whole still gets at least 4 stars from me
  • Pete Trg
    Diverting if snarky news roundup
    Paula’s a pro, Negin has to drop the radio voice, Luke should take over after Peter
  • Luczaza
    So witty!
    Improv humor is so funny, they are so clever and quick witted and intelligent, it cracks me up.
  • Fortnite_sweat43
    one of the best podcasts
    💯💯💯

    I’m literally 11
    My mom listens to this show, or she used it to. I have no interest in this show but um.... probably good work!
  • Dog Person ;)
    I love "Everyone and their mom"!!
    I love WWDTM but I wish thier was MORE Everyone and their mom!! And I love it when Paula Poundstone and Maeve Higgins are on the show!! 🤩

    Decadence
    This show is everything wrong with modernity and the 21st century. I’d prefer to listen to North Korean propaganda, it feels less state-sponsored than this agitprop under the guise of comedy.
  • Chuck Dumpster
    More pedowood dogsh** “celebs” that wont get a clue
    As usual , obscure and undesired ex”public” figures from our past come back like a bad junkies relapse. Nobody asks for this but thats never a fact that gets considered by sociopaths, greedy money chasers and needy spotlight fiends.
  • Yam Mar
    Leftist Slant
    A show that offers a somewhat quick review of the week’s news, though often interrupted by plugs promoting Leftist politicians and Leftist agendas by the program’s staff and guests.
  • KenyaDreaming
    Listener for two decades
    This show has traveled with me around the world and brought me so many laughs. My kids are now fans and ask to listen to “our podcast” together. Thank you for all the joy, weird stories, and actual news! Love this show.
  • ✌️🍄🍀🪷🐸🪷🍀🍄✌️
    Bill Curtis’s voice is so therapeutic
    I would just like to say Bill Curtis‘s voice is the most amazing voice. It’s so therapeutic, and so amazing.
  • JS from NYC
    the annoying week
    between having clinton on and the woman doing her exaggerated over the top black woman thing, this was a one star week. hey but that happens sometimes Peter
  • ALibralMiget
    I’ll listen if there’s Mo Rocca
    He’s really the only thing I enjoy about the show at this point. It’s a little cringy.
  • randallpark@123
