Can Listen to this Over & Over (& Eagerly Do)

This audiobook: Sandi Toksvig takes over as host from Simon Hoggart in 2006.

Another wonderful BBC Comedy News Quiz show audiobook. I easily rate it five out of five stars. The only thing that disappoints is that there aren't more episodes.

I recommend it to anyone who appreciates UK politics, satire, improv, & engaging performances.

I've neither felt this topical news program was out of date; nor that out of office—or obscure UK politicians—were a hindrance to my understanding/enjoyment. It's really about the interplay amongst the host, the revolving panelists, & the articles sent in by listeners.

I think you'll fall in love with it as much as I have—if the concept suits your taste.
