Our Editor's Take

The TV version of the Face the Nation on the Radio podcast has covered the day's biggest news stories since 1954. Host Margaret Brennan continues the CBS News tradition every Sunday morning. Listeners can hear audio from the program on demand after it's posted a short time after airing. Each podcast lasts around 45 minutes.

Face the Nation is a must-visit on politicians' Sunday talk show circuit. It features Brennan discussing the most consequential news with officials and experts. Brennan presses hard on individuals from all parts of the political spectrum.

Bonus episodes are a great reason to subscribe to the podcast version of Face the Nation. They often feature full interviews and timely special reports. Global happenings and election coverage inspire bonus material too. For instance, Brennan questioned local correspondents from key states during midterm elections. Producers published those segments as stand-alone podcasts every Friday.

Margaret Brennan took over hosting duties for the show in 2018. She is the tenth moderator of the program. She succeeds CBS greats such as George Herman, Lesley Stahl, and Bob Schieffer. Brennan often fills in as host of CBS Evening News and serves as the network's chief foreign affairs correspondent. Face the Nation on the Radio keeps listeners updated with the most pressing news.
