The Daily

by Kate Travis

The Daily is a podcast from the New York Times that gives an update on the news in one half-hour episode each day. Normally, the host, Michael Barbaro, will pick one topic to focus on for each day, giving an in-depth look at a pressing issue. Recently, as the pandemic has been on everyone’s minds, the podcast has been diving into different topics related to the coronavirus, including interviewing Dr. Fauci and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for information about the government response. While I was a fan of the Daily before the coronavirus hit, it has been especially helpful for keeping me up-to-date on the news and explaining phenomena that can be confusing or counterintuitive. With all this, it has helped provide information to people who have a need for up-to-date and accurate information.
