The New York Times has rapidly become a household brand name in podcasting thanks to “The Daily”, a show that delivers fresh audio content from Monday to Friday and now generates two million downloads every day.
Beyond this successful audio offering – which launched in early 2017, and supplies a behind-the-scenes perspective on an important news story each day – the Grey Lady has built out a slate of podcasts, such as:
- “Modern love”: This popular crowdsourced column has been transformed into an audio experience through readings by well-known actors – like Anna Chlumsky, Zoe Saldana, and Jason Alexander.
- “Still processing”: Hosted by Jenna Wortham and Wesley Morris, two writers at the Times, the weekly show focuses on cultural topics that range from climate change to the legacy of pop icon Michael Jackson.
- “Popcast”: Each installment of this content play, which is anchored by Times critic Jon Caramanica, covers the latest music trends, criticism and news.
