First of all, Iranians don’t speak Arabic. Second of all, Iranians are against their dictator politicians and are imprisoned and murdered because of their liberal opinions. So that’s not “popular in Iran”. That’s part of the mullah’s anti America propaganda. But hey, nice way to spread some hatred while you have the stage.

They're in New York and a former reality star was the best they could do? Did every actor, musician, athlete, and even CEO leave the city for some weird early holiday thing?

I thoroughly enjoyed the latest episode of "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" The combination of humor and current events analysis provided a refreshing and entertaining take on the week's news. The witty banter among the panelists, coupled with the cleverly crafted questions, made for a delightful listening experience. https://www.find-us-here.com/businesses/Cookie-Packaging-Pros-Brooklyn-New-York-USA/33900690/ I appreciate how the show manages to blend satire with insightful commentary, creating a unique and engaging format. The guest interview segment was particularly interesting, shedding light on topics that are both relevant and thought-provoking. Overall, "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" continues to be a highlight in the world of podcasts, offering a perfect blend of comedy and news analysis. https://trueen.com/business/listing/cookie-packaging-pros/353871

This has to be my favorite episode of WWDTM in a long time. Maeve's story of celery is the best! Add to that the fun of a conservative talk radio producer coming on as a contestant and this will be an episode I won't forget anytime soon 😁
