Don't get me wrong, this is an NPR classic. If you, like many liberals, feel the only proper way to get your news is through comedians, than this is an option for you. When I have time or need something to get my mind off of whatever terrible thing is happening in the world, this is one of the outlets I turn to. It is not in my regular rotation simply because I have a lot of comedy news in my life and I need some solutions instead of a laugh while the world burns mentality.
I should add that this is one of the few podcasts that suffers from COVID as it is built for a studio audience.
If you like the world of topical comedy game shows on the radio, I would suggest checking out The News Quiz on BBC Radio 4 (which is on rotation in the Friday Night Comedy Podcast). It is the same concept but with British accents so much headier
