The Daily (podcast)

The Daily is a daily news podcast and radio show by the American newspaper The New York Times. Hosted by Times political journalist Michael Barbaro, its 20-minute episodes are based on the Times' reporting of the day.

The Daily is based on interviews with Times journalists,[1] in which they summarize and comment on their story, and is complemented by recordings related to the topic, or original reporting such as interviews with persons involved in the story. A summary of headlines concludes the podcast.

Started in January 2017, The Daily became a noted success for the Times; described it as "a phenomenon, an out-of-the-blue hit".[2] It had 3.8 million individual listeners by August 2017,[3] and was regularly in the top ten most-listened podcasts by autumn 2017.[2] The New Yorker attributed this success, in part, to the podcast's "conversational and intimate" tone, which made news more accessible, and to Barbaro's "idiosyncratic intonation".[1] The podcast began being syndicated to radio by American Public Media in 2018.[4]

The Daily is free to listen and financed by advertising. The Times has said it intends to build a news podcast franchise around it, beginning with a spin-off podcast, The New Washington, in summer 2017.[2] The New Washington ran from July 2017 until December of the same year.[5] A children's edition of The Daily is also planned.[6]
