    Parody is a way to deconstruct reality and may well contribute to keeping people informed, which should be considered a relevant dimension of Media Education. The morning slots in Portuguese radio stations have begun to include satirical program‐ mes. This exploratory research aims to collect all the short duration satirical pro‐ grammes of the main Portuguese radio broadcasters in order to understand whether these elements satirise ordinary life or political events. In addition to analysing about 50 satirical programmes, this paper also includes the views of around one hundred people on humour and radio. One of the suggestions of listeners is precisely that satirical programs should emphasise topics on political and social parody.
