The wit is timeless and a laugh is guaranteed

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

Hilarious! Best medecin ever!

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!

The News Quiz -BBC

A collection of wonderful satirical barbs mixed with convivial humour led by the venerable Andy Hamilton, along with Phil Jupitus, Susan Colman & Bridget Christie.Chaired by Sandy Toksvig it is a bittersweet experience listening to the late Jeremy Hardy & his characteristic rants. The rant in which the government attempts to privatise the NHS by stealth seems rather prophetic in 2021.

great

A great reminder of how Sandi made this such a superb show. Would only be better if the Extra show was recorded. I listen to it time and time again.
