If you have not discovered NPR's weekly radio show Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! , then I pity you. This clever show is truly one of the funniest shows on radio or television or just about anywhere. This collection has 12 of the best visits from celebrity visits from 2001-2006.

Most of these are funny or at least interesting. Then Senator Barack Obama starts off the collection with possibly the funniest visit of the bunch (and I am not a fan of Mr. Obama, but funny is funny). Tom Hanks ( Saving Priv...more

OMG. This is so fun. Especially because Barack Obama is the first guest. Anyone who doubts if he has a sense of humor should hear it. Oh, and did I tell you about the time back in 2005 when he spoke to me for about 45 minutes, and I felt like he should for sure be president? I called Jake right afterward and gleefully exclaimed Barack for President!! (seriously!).

Well, it's true. And I'm sure the other 9,999 people in the room at the American Library Association conference thought so too.

I love this radio program! This cd features some hilarious takes with the following guests- Barack Obama, Janeane Garofalo, Sarah Silverman, and more. There are also some not so hilarious segments with less funny guests that can easily be skipped.

I love this show but rarely catch it so I was very pleased to find the audiobook version at the library. 2 CDs of hilarious antics and answers from then Senator Barack Obama, Janeane Garofalo, Brian Williams and Tom Hanks.

Hmmm. I was unaware that audio CDs were on goodreads. I'm not talking audiobooks, here. This contains excerpts from my favorite podcast of all-time, Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!
