One of the inspirations that I had when building this site was mrk.'s Wait Wait Don't Tell Me Statistics Pages (Internet Archive). I used some of the scoring data from that site to fill in some of the informational blanks for some of the shows prior to Peter Sagal becoming the show's host.

I would like to thank David Moss for providing a list of the direct links for each show page on NPR.org for the shows from 2006 through 2023.

I would also like to thank Elijah Conners for contributing code to display a map of a location, using Leafjet and OpenStreetMap, in the location details page.
