Our Editor's Take

The New York Times brings listeners The Daily, a podcast about reporting on what's happening here and now. The Daily aims to provide matter-of-fact news that's approachable and engaging. From breaking news reports to long explainers of developing stories, this podcast mixes topics and formats. No hard subject is off-limits for The Daily. Listeners can expect straightforward news alongside engaging storytelling. Michael Barbaro and Sabrina Tavernise host the podcast. Other reporters narrate their own segments. The result is a unique blend of perspectives from a diverse group of people.

The Daily's claim to fame is dependability. Listeners can expect an episode of The Daily every weekday. And it's always ready by 6 a.m. Episodes do not have consistent run times or set themes—it all depends on the news. Segments tend to run anywhere from 20 to 50 minutes. The Daily is not a chronological podcast. This means listeners can choose episodes randomly or listen from the start. The podcast has been in production since 2017, so listeners have a lot of episodes to choose from.

Audiences seeking a reliable listen for their morning commute will especially enjoy The Daily. But that's not all. Anyone who seeks an approachable way to catch up on the latest news will be able to appreciate this podcast.
