No matter if it is from years ago or this week the observational comedy makes this a great listen. When the panelists go of at tangents you may even cry laughing. Sandy Toksvig struggles valiantly to keep order but fails almost all the time which makes it even better
I love history, crime and thrillers, biographies and almost anything by the BBC.
I have been listening to the News Quiz on and off for many years since I was a teenager. It is a perfectly delightful experience and Sandi Toksvig is a more than worthy successor to the late Alan Coren. One always feels bereft at the end of the programme like a child being forced to go to bed early when a party is going on. If you are feeling depressed or down the News Quiz will snap you out of it in no time!
Editor by trade, reader by compulsion, listener by virtue of a delight in the audio dimension. Long To-Be-Listened-To List.
The News Quiz is perennial fun, irrespective of topicality. SandiToksvig proves herself a great chair here and the guests are almost always reliable. Lose yourself in The News Quiz.
