I love this show and it’s various pre Covid variations! I love how no matter the amount of “contestants” playing there’s still enough time to play along and try to guess the wild answers. So much fun to play on speakers when friends are over great conversation starters and lots of easy laughs!!!...Read full review »

Really fun show! Dave is a great host.

Just wanted to write a review to say I love this show and Dave Holmes is delightful.

The show was much better when it was more of a trivia type game. Now it’s just weird and not as funny. I used to listen regularly when it was uk vs us comedians doing trivia. Now I only listen if I’ve listened to everything else.

This used to be one of my faves, it was rather jolly good when it had the Brits. Now it is still....... ok. Sorry.

This is a great laugh and a fun way to learn random cultural facts and opinions.

As part of the MaxFun network this podcast does cross promotional ads with other podcasts on the network. The ad Troubled Waters plays is so sonically unpleasant I have developed a Pavlovian response to plug my ears and flee whenever I hear a pirate or an off board motor. Troubled Waters, your ad...Read full review »

I love the silly games!!
MoMosioux via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/19
I loved international waters, but troubled waters has lost most of the comedy. The show has become talking about current events and not about being funny. Also, it’s hella annoying to listen to in the car because Dave’s voice fluctuates so dramatically throughout even his sentences. Will still be...Read full review »
Marleytexas via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/01/19
The original “International Waters” podcast was stellar. The new incarnation, “Troubled Waters”, much less so, so the stars are all for the past episodes, with one dropped for the current state of the show, since I can’t rate them separately. Definitely download and enjoy all the past IW...Read full review »
Polianitsa via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/17/19
International Waters used to be the highlight of my podcst listening, funny, a great host and great guests. When I heard it was going to be revamped as a new format I was disappointed but I figured hey - still the same great host (and he really is good) so let's reserve judgement. Sadly,...Read full review »

The new version just isn't as funny. I'm missing the british comedians.Read full review »
Kai, The swedish guy. via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 04/07/19
Sorry, I gave the new incarnation of the show a go ... I really did, but every episode illustrates how much it relied on British comedians to make it work. Now they have the LA show which they must have wanted - I’m sure it is cheaper to produce, but the only problem is is that you can tell.
mpdear via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/25/19
Not a bad podcast by any means, and the promo for it piqued my interest. However, during the first episode, black coffee vs creamy coffee, the only discussion about coffee was to establish a buzzer phrase for the games that had nothing to do with coffee. Again, not a bad show by any means, just...Read full review »
Peart93 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/19
Well that was fun whilst it lasted but they seem intent on messing up the format. If they go ahead with the change and remove the transatlantic element then all interest will drop away for me. I can’t recommend that anybody subscribe to this podcast at this time.
Callum_Wright via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/16/19
...with great US and UK comedians (although politics more and more frequently casts a pall over the proceedings).

Sometimes I think I'm not in the mood to listen to topical comedy, but then I listen to this anyway and am glad I did. Plenty of lol moments. 😊Read full review »

Dave Holmes is a fantastic and entertaining host, and the guests are consistently great. Also, shout out to the writers who come up with great bits and quiz games.
trilogyjab via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/18
This is a throughly entertaining podcast. The format is a quiz show where current events and pop culture are the general subjects but it’s filled with so much more goodness. Brits and Americans come together to compete for “best country” and riff on all sorts of funny stuff. One of those that...Read full review »

Listen and enjoy funny guests talking about current events and banter with a charming Dave Holmes.

Wish i had Alzheimer, so I would forget all the non funny things I wasted my time listening to!
Mr Dillon via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 05/18/18
Pacey, structured delivery. Fun games. Potty-mouthed guests enabled by a skilled host. Alive to power, gender, sexuality and ethnicity. Comedy for grown ups who know what really matters between people.

I love this podcast so much. Truly LOL funny. Have gone back and listened to every single episode
Sarah.199411 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/11/18
This show relies on top quality guest, and they often get them. Good writing, great hosting. Highly entertaining

Clever and childish comedy.

I love this podcast so much! Dave Holmes is the greatest host in existence, the guests are awesome and every episode has me walking around at work with a permanent smile of I’m not cracking up with laughter. Episode 96 in particular is a real joy to listen to with sewer dudes and great singing....Read full review »

listen to this podcast! It has clever competitions and funny riffs on all things pop culture. And my favorite part... UK v USA comedians. Do yourself a favor and listen while I catch up on all the episodes that I have missed.
Mitchley13 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/17
Just started and super enjoying it. Listened to a few in the back catalogue and I’m glad I did
Bluegrasshole via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/01/17
It used to be great with Jesse Thorne, then Dave Holmes took over and he tried to maintain the same level and I would occasionally listen to it when there were interesting guests... But more recently, since Trump became president, the whole podcast became a Take a dump on Trump podcast. I...Read full review »

Dave Holmes hosts this "gameshow" that features comedians from North America competing against comedians from the U.K. in a trivia challenge that is much funnier than this review can put into words. Subscribe already.Read full review »
chrispwalsh via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/04/17
This is a wonderfully funny panel show that pits British and American comedians against each other in answering questions regarding each country. I especially like the plugs at the end. Panellists are invited to promote their latest work, and then plug the work of someone else to balance the...Read full review »

My eyes were burnt out of my skull by looking at the sun too long, and not noticing the acid about to be shot in to them by a shark shaped squirt gun, but this pod cast grew my eyes back only after 7 pod cast listens. Thanks International Waters, now I have to work again!
Poppy Corn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/17
I love listening to the bizarre humor that comes out of the cross-culture battle that is this show. It’s one of many great shows that MaxFun puts out.

I love this show and how much it makes me laugh! The whole concept is perfection, even if the points are pointless.
CoastalSatyr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/17
Been listening since the beginning, the show only gets better as it goes along. Dave Holmes is fantastic as the host and it's quite fun to hear repeat guests now, especially when they pretend to be shocked by the third round "surprise" each time. Dave and the writers/producers have an...Read full review »

Guests are of varying quality/styles of humour but Dave Holmes is a hilarious constant. The idea is great, though very dependent on who they have on as to how funny it is.o

Funny and satirical but still heart. Highlighting some great comedians
692059506 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/09/17
I'm an American living in the UK so I get ALL the jokes. But seriously, the comedians, the pop culture topics and Dave Holmes are all top notch. Everyone pokes fun at each other, their own countries and all of our weird cultural differences in between and it's hilarious. I always look...Read full review »
