The News Quiz

Now that I am at University, I am living a life without a TV. This is hard. Filling the void somewhat are a new batch of podcasts that I am listening to. The best of these is BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz.

A satirical panel game, the news quiz takes elements of the news and some brilliant comedians poke fun at these stories. It works brilliantly on Radio, using the medium to poke fun. It is not filled with soundbites of politicians, but with these comidians both explaining the news story and having a laugh.

Last week included the criminal who robbed a car, and was caught because he had his name and date of birth totooed onto his neck. It was hilarious.
