"...poking fun at the news in a far more acerbic way than you would expect from a channel as classy as NPR."

Crystal Stone • Common Sense Media Nov 28, 2022

"...the show always comes with fresh banter, humor, and topics. This podcast would be great for a classroom, road trip, or background noise while you work around the house with your kids, providing entertaining conversations about current, relevant events."

Aigner Loren Wilson • Discover Pods Apr 20, 2021

"The reason that I think it’s a great show for stoners, though, is because it gamifies current events, highlights important but oftentimes un-talked about news, and interviews interesting people. All and all, it’s a highly entertaining show that’s great for laughs, news, and high ideas for a stoner’s early morning routine as they get ready to tackle their day."

"Didn't know much about Chelsea Peretti before. Was fun to hear about how she made music album all about coffee. Her teaser for her new standup special making fun of standup specials piqued my interest as well. Peter Sagal had some good zingers on the Corona Virus and the recent election results. Overall, worth a listen."
