The Bret Baier Podcast is an extension of Fox News' Special Report. The television program has been a top show on the network since 1998. And its popularity has only increased since Baier took over in 2009. It is currently the number one cable news show in the 6 o'clock time slot.
This podcast is not a full version of Baier's TV show. Instead, it features only two segments. The first weekly segment on The Bret Baier Podcast is the Tuesday rotating roundtable show. The Fox show calls it the "All-Star Panel." Political reporters, analysts, columnists, and more make frequent appearances. The panel has journalists like USA Today's Susan Page. Fox News personalities Chad Pergram and Peter Doocy give their thoughts. Conservative commentators like Ben Domenech and Byron York are regulars. So are liberal voices like Juan Williams. Former politicians such as Trey Gowdy and Harold Ford Jr. are also frequent guests. Political strategists like Colin Reed fill out the panel.
Baier facilitates great conversations and propels the discussion forward. His polished interview techniques and thoughtful questions keep the debate on track. From news from the White House to the latest at Mar-a-Lago, The Bret Baier Podcast has timely topics.
The second Special Report segment featured on this podcast is Thursday's "Common Ground" segment. These podcast episodes reflect that title. Baier brings Democrats and Republicans together to discuss a particular issue. In one such segment, two House members talked about what they had in common. Both graduated from West Point. Both talked with Baier about how that background prepared them for Congress. And both also shared their concern for veterans.
Listeners can expect relevant, current news. Baier and his guests provide profound commentary and astute insights on all of it. New episodes of The Bret Baier Podcast air twice weekly. Each episode averages approximately 20 minutes in length.
