Description

Join Paula Poundstone, co-host Adam Felber and a long list of characters, real and imaginary, on Nobody Listens To Paula Poundstone, a podcast taking the fun of a late-night show, the wit of a public radio show, and the knowledge of a guest expert while setting the volume to the max. Acerbic yet infectiously funny, Nobody Listens To Paula Poundstone invites listeners into the audience of this absolutely ludicrous variety show, if they can follow along…or not.
