I listen to this podcast whilst walking our dog. It makes me laugh out loud, even if it’s raining!! Thank you!

Miles is just such a good host. The gusts are really funny too. We’ll done team and the bbc!

Miles Jupp continues to be a great host for this show. Who would have thought all those years ago that the story in Balamory would be an amusing anecdote about a fight for compensation from a defunct electronics and component retailer?

Miles Jupp is the perfect host for the funniest show on the Radio
El Gaffer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/17/18
Great show but random episodes just disappear. Episode 3 from the present series, episode 5 not downloading, many episodes from previous series vanished. Not a problem on any other podcasts I keep. Please fix this ASAP. Episodes 1 and 3 of current series will not download despite repeated...Read full review »

Always good fun.

I liked the News Quiz...standard?...but I really enjoy this Extra, which has more the feel of actually being at the taping; even the slips and wanderings off track are hilarious and the cleverness of the participants really shines. I have to confess still waiting for "with Sandy Toksvig" in the...Read full review »

Love the programme, but get quite annoyed that most episodes won’t download. Play ok, but can’t download, so can only listen for a bit until they are deleted.

Such a fun show. Keep 'em coming

No other satirical programme gives us straight news and comic comment in the laugh-out-loud way this does. Scripted bits especially good.

Miles Jupp: light, witty with hint of sarcasm. Some guests/panellists are prone to descend into preachy whinge-fests, but so far cringe factor is tolerable. I don’t think that will improve soon, so let’s appreciate what we’ve got...
Ddman73 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/13/18
Forget the seasons, my year is demarcated by the appearance and disappearance of this marvellous show. Why can’t it run all the time? It’s perfection might only be improved upon by the addition of David O’ Doherty and/or Dara O’ Brien to panels now and again. Or Theresa May. Why not, that...Read full review »

A superbly prepared news program with extraordinarily talented guests. Miles Jupp is the ideal choice for chair of this program. This is a "must" for anyone interested in clever comedy and current UK events.
PatrickRRead via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/18
Great for News Quiz-addicts. Why not open a Just a Minute channel as well? :-)
Sjefen sjøl via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 01/18/18
Who cares if it’s biased any way - it’s a comedy show not a serious news programme and besides satire is usually against those in power. Now the Tories, previously Labour. Equal mickey taking. And Miles Jupp is brilliant.
littlegibbo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/18/18
I love how balanced this is. All those who think it isn’t might just be far right Nazis. Jus sayin
Jack Eagles via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/17/18
It’s awesome.
shaggydog2301 via Apple Podcasts · India · 11/21/17
Miles is fab, but all those right wing loonies, can we have a little balance please
Dune_uk via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/07/17
Cant it be on everyday? THANK YOU
Cape Town Brit via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 11/04/17
Satirical, comical, slightly informative... they take the kick out of all sides of the news and politics, and completely free of ego! Listen if you want a lighthearted view of the news...
MattButler86 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/31/17
Miles Jupp is a fabulous host, funny every week. Only wish it could be on weekly, tbh.
Spaced_One via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/26/17
I like how they put a comic twist on news, especially how depressing news is now a days.
Sequeira119 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/24/17
i see your lefty bias and raise you one Simon Evans
davidte1968 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/18/17
If you have listened to the News Quiz it needs no introduction. If you haven”t you are in for a treat.
Lugano01 via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 10/09/17
Sounds like they are having a lot of fun, sadly we’re not.
Flamehearted via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/07/17
Can't wait for the next episode. Always a winner.
AlexandraHop via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/30/17
The News Quiz with extra jokes. Lovely.
PR1812 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/20/17
Brilliant return to form under the stewardship of Miles Jupp. The variety of guests seems to be improving also, and any episode with the likes of Jeremy Hardy, Simon Evans, Zoe Lyons and Sudan Calman are uniform ally excellent. My only gripe is that they keep inviting back Camilla Long.
Iggypopbarker79 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/19/17
The advice from another reviewer to delete, close the app and then resubscribe seems to have fixed my download issue - thanks! ***** I love this series but I'm really fed up of repeatedly trying to make it download only to find it goes through the motion without actually downloading, this is the...Read full review »
The Girl Scribbles via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/08/17
Love the News Quiz and all its hosts but Miles is my favourite, which is amazing as Sandy was brilliant! I had the download issue too. I fixed it by swiping left to delete it from My Podcasts and doing the same with the constantly repeatedly downloading episodes. I had to delete it 3 times from...Read full review »

Great show. Please add as many years worth of previous episodes, as you can - they are still funny.
SMonttana via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/25/17
The one star is for Myles who is superb, the rest, particularly Susan Calman and Jeremy Hardy have become so bitter and frustrated that they have completely lost their sense of humour. Without the balance/counter POV it has become a limp, repetitive and humourless monologue.
Woodside Paddy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/25/17
Love Miles. Love Jeremy. Love Susan. Love that we get an extra 15 minutes.
A122333 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/25/17
I love the News Quiz but his extended version refuses to download to listen on the go. It says it is downloading but fails to process. Will get. 5 star once it's fixed!!!!!!
Brad4 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/20/17
It won't download. It gives the impression it's downloading, but won't save to my iPad, and as I don't always have the Internet with which to listen to things, it's very frustrating. Please sort this and I will give five stars
The lost sailor 83 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/14/17
Slightly less liberal left but an improvement. Difficult to make fun of the Eurofiles because they have no character, so excused.
Lloyd499£55 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/17
Miles is superb and format is great. you could try hiring a guest now and again with a different point of view -3 topics every week: Corbyn bad, brexit bad, trump bad. regardless of your own opinions the lack of any counter arguments or balance makes for a pointless pile of poo. typical of the...Read full review »
Flipper the dodo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/25/17
Proving that people on the extreme right cannot take a laugh at their expense. For the rest of us, it’s one of the best comedy shows around; poking fun at po-faced, self-regarding politicians regardless of their political orientation.
MBelderson via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/24/17
Love this show, I thought Sandi may be a tough act to follow but Miles Jupp performs this with huge aplomb! Highly entertaining, and streets ahead of the TV version that is HIGNFY! Highly recommended.
DoubleoDobby via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/03/16
Miles is great, his wonderful understated dry wit give a semblance of balance to the others. Yes they are waaay to the left of the Grauniad- but hey they make you laugh! What more can you ask? And I'm the typical middle-aged middle class Tory they like to disparage. Keep it up please !
PaddyGoesToHolyhead via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/02/16
If I could give 6* stars I would. The news quiz is just brilliant and so funny always. So many years of Friday laughs. Thank you.
Simon The Keeper via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/02/16
Really love the show. So funny. As a 41yo I feel embarrassed to admit I listen to radio four but often find myself telling friends and family about this programme
Giantswillfall via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/23/16
More of this show is always preferable , Miles Jupp is an outstanding new host.
UberdunkUK via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/18/16
Simon Hoggart was stilted and Sandy Toksvig was scripted. Miles Jupp is a bit of both and many times better than either. He ad libs quite wonderfully and his monologues leave everyone, aside from Jeremy Hardy, in the shade.
MatthewOwen via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/30/16
Great show, full of witty guests making good jokes and the occasional cutting satirical comment. Fun to hear 15 minutes of material not on Radio 4. But it's a shame the show is so old by the time it reaches Podcast. I mean, episode 6 has much on the Queen's Speech - a full 12 days after it...Read full review »
