Critic Reviews

Score: 5

Julie Hassett • Headstuff Oct 8, 2021

"...it dishes up an endless stream of hilariously random facts which is perfect for building up your repertoire of perhaps useless information. The hosts are incredibly knowledgeable in their own right, with interesting tidbits to contribute to whatever random fact they introduce us to."

Emma Dibdin • New York Times Jun 22, 2020

"The regular hosts, Dan Schreiber, James Harkin, Andrew Hunter Murray and Anna Ptaszynski, have such a wealth of reliably weird, fascinating knowledge at their fingertips that the show has never had a dud episode in its six-year run."

Bruce Dessau • Beyond The Joke Apr 29, 2014

"Sometimes, however, the team uncover something that may not be absolutely true but they cannot resist telling it because it is such a ripping yarn. Each podcast is accompanied by footnotes and visuals on the QI website if you want to do further swotting up. All it lacks is the likes of Alan Davies and co chipping in with their comedic quips, but there are still plenty of laughs to be had."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Mar 22, 2014

"...all of the four featured elves speak in a different way, which is useful. Too many podcasts are populated by people who sound alike and laugh the same. I liked the straightforwardness of the second broadcast. Anyway, the podcast is jolly, packed with impressive and silly facts, and so far hasn't descended into too much in-joke chumminess, so hooray for No Such Thing As a Fish."
