Our Editor's Take

Nightline is the podcast version of the popular ABC daily news show. The Nightline TV show made TV Guide's list of the "50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time." Hosts Juju Chang and Byron Pitts share the news-and opinions on what happened each day.

The podcast focuses on a different theme for each episode. In one Nightline episode, listeners hear about ongoing airplane issues. Passenger violence, cabin smoke, severe turbulence-incidents seem to be accumulating. Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants, shares her explanation. She lists three things flight attendants need for flight safety. She calls flight attendants aviation's "first responders" and "last line of defense." Captain C.B. "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed on the Hudson River, describes what pilots need. He shares what helped him and First Officer Jeffrey Skiles avert disaster.

In another podcast episode, Nightline interviews singer Adam Lambert. The Queen singer explains why he's happy he performed "Bohemian Rhapsody" as a contestant on American Idol. Listeners will learn about his film Fairyland. He also reveals he's voicing an animated DreamWorks character and writing a musical.

Nightline also discusses true crime news, too. For example, in one episode, they talk about Kristin Smart's killer, Paul Flores. His conviction came over 25 years after his crime. Another podcast helped catch Flores, known on campus as "Creepy Paul." Listeners will hear the tapped phone call that provided evidence.

A powerful episode shares the connection between mothers who lost children in the Uvalde, Texas, shooting. One mom says she likes to think of their friendship as the one their daughters would have had.

The Nightline podcast is a convenient way to hear what's happening around the world daily. Episodes are under 30 minutes and come out each day.
