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.
