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....

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!

“Elite Media"

Only the NYT would go interview Newt Gingrich - possibly THE most biased person in the world against Hillary Clinton - ABOUT Hillary Clinton… and not only that, but once he starts babbling he won’t shut up about the biased “elite media”. Newt, if the “elite media” were really so biased, they wouldn’t come interview YOU about Hillary, would they? But shame on you NYT for letting him get away with that unchallenged. Talk about being cuckolded. He completely punked you on your debut episode. If you’re going to be interviewing Trump surrogates, you need to grow a pair and a backbone, and not let them get away with this nonsense.
