I’ve recently started listening to the New York Times podcast called The Daily, which comes out every weekday morning. Each episode is about 20 minutes long and it’s perfect for listening while I get ready in the morning. There’s a main story that is well-reported, interesting, informative, and always timely. And the last few minutes consist of “Here’s what else you need to know” – a brief summary of the morning’s headlines. It’s perfect. Check it out.
“This is how the news should sound. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, hosted by Michael Barbaro and powered by New York Times journalism.”
