We go all-out on our Halloween special! First, Paula shares her own scaaaary Halloween experiences (getting ripped off by her siblings), and then we explore our listeners’ traditions. We summon pumpkin patch proprietor Lilly Cabrera to talk about the cutthroat jack-o-lantern business. And then Paula and Adam tell you whether you should see the new “Halloween” movie based on their red-hot take on the terrifying 1978 John Carpenter classic.

About the show
Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone is a comedy field guide to life, or at least a set of IKEA assembly instructions. Where else can you find advice on topics from “How To Keep a Friend” to “How to Translate Your Verizon Bill?” Or even “What Do I Do If I Encounter a Bear” and “Should I Get a Penis Piercing?”
Paula and her co-host Adam Felber bring on leading expert guests and use their unique comedic sensibility to help us navigate life in the 21st century. Along the way, Paula attempts to explains existence through her kaleidoscopic perspective, and Adam tries to interject some rationality.
Paula Poundstone is a nationally known comedian, legendary for her smart spontaneous humor. She and Adam are regular panelists on NPR’s #1 show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!
