Description

Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone is a comedy field guide to life, or at least a set of IKEA assembly instructions. Where else can you find advice on topics from "How To Keep a Friend" to "How To Translate Your Verizon Bill?" Or even "What do I do if I encounter a Bear" and "Should I Get a Penis Piercing?"Paula and her co-host Adam Felber bring on leading expert guests and use their unique comedic sensibility to help us navigate life in the 21st century. Along the way, Paula attempts to explains existence through her kaleidoscopic perspective, and Adam tries to interject some rationality.Paula Poundstone is a nationally known comedian, legendary for her smart spontaneous humor. She and Adam are regular panelists on NPR's #1 show, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!

The podcast has grown since its launch, but there is still some improvements that could be made. For example, they recycle the same jokes over and over again, and they become less funny each time.

Not only is diehard a Christmas movie it is the best Christmas movie ever made. A close second is reindeer games. The subtitle of diehard should be a miracle at Nakatani plaza or it’s a wonderful death. It is the reason for the season. Money rains down just like everywhere around Christmas time. What makes a Christmas movie is symbolism you can’t get better than that.

I have to say, Paula's podcast has gotten SO much better. I've always been a fan and love her voice. She's my favorite on Wait Wait Dont Tell me, and one of these days I'll win her voice on my voicemail, damn it.😉 I'll always "picture" her as the purple haired mom Paula of Brendan Small on Home Movies. great job on this podcast! it's fckn funny ✌

Your Podcast has become to blue with vulgar language. I have enjoyed your comedian efforts until now. I will delete your Podcast and wait till you cut the swearing out. You can tell a good story without it, you're that good!
