The election is over. But the story has just begun. Michael Barbaro, who has covered the last two presidential races for the Times, hosts our twice-weekly conversation about the biggest stories and surprises coming out of the campaign. The show features Times political reporters, Opinion columnists and data analysts. You’ll also hear interviews with key players on the political scene. It’s the access and authority The New York Times does best.

Customer Reviews


The first episode was a huge disappointment. The first 5 minutes were great - intelligent discussion of the race. The next 25 minutes was dedicated to an interview with Newt Gingrich and his completely insane view of the political climate in this country and his delusional fantasyland concept of Donald Trump and what Trump can do to win. (i.e. go to Chicago and win over blacks - sure Newt). Dumb. I'll listen to episode two, but if it's anything like episode one I'm done....


Wow. The NYT Clinton bashing takes to the cyber airwaves. These folks have made me seriously consider canceling my subscription.

Incredible! Thrilled to have found this!

Smart, thoughtful, interesting and well-edited - this quickly became my favorite political podcast (besides Real Time with Bill Maher). Other podcasts are too coy or are trying too hard to be edgy. This show gives access to the experts in a way that invites you in. 10 stars!
