"Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me"

    The best thing on NPR if you ask me. A rotating panel of guests, including Charles Pierce, that I catch whenever I can on weekends. I've also started downloading the podcast through the Web site.


    It's 45 minutes of smart-assery, the week's news, and Carl Kasell.

    The reason I'm posting this now is I'm finally getting to last weekend's show, and Chris Paul was the guest. The first pro athlete they'd had on for their "Not My Job" segment. Paul's a good kid.

    Anyone else love this show as much as I do?

    I do, but I don't catch it as much as I used to.

    Used to listen to Click and Clack, Wait, Wait and the rerun of PHC all on Saturday afternoons. I'm sure my parents still do...

    Get the podcast, Zeke. It's awesome. I open up iTunes, and I have Wait Wait, Driveway Moments and All Songs Considered waiting on me.

    Count me in. I'm the biggest NPR nerd I know. Sat in our parking garage today listening to a discussion Toobin's "The Nine." Long enough that a security guard checked on me to see if I was still alive, or died with the car running.

    Apparently you can get the News from Lake Wobegon as a podcast.


    The reason you can't get the full show is explained here: http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/help/#podcast

    I love This American Life, especially anything with David Sedaris or Sarah Vowell.

    "Car Talk" is one of the best shows on the air. That is all.

    Mrs.Expendable loves Wait Wait, and gets the podcasts, but I'm just not a NPR kind of guy.

    Why not just get the podcast then?
