This hour we're going behind-the-scenes at two top podcasts: The Daily and 99% Invisible .

Bringing Together Narrative and News [excerpt]
presented by Lisa Tobin and Michael Barbaro of The Daily from The New York Times
When the New York Times got into the podcast business in 2017, they hired producer Lisa Tobin, a public radio veteran, as executive producer. Lisa and her team went in thinking they would make one type of podcast and came out with something completely different. The form they inadvertently invented was The Daily, a twenty-minute deep dive into the news that to applies documentary story structure to traditional journalism. They must be doing something right, since The Daily shot right to the top of the podcast charts. At the 2017 Third Coast Conference, Lisa Tobin the show’s host, Michael Barbaro, discussed what they’ve learned from the first nine months of making The Daily.

The Past Isn't Past [excerpt]
presented by Delaney Hall of 99% Invisible
