The Daily: The Rise of Nationalism Across the Globe

Politics &

Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, “The Daily,” The New York Times’s flagship audio show, explores the world’s biggest stories, with the world’s best journalists. Since its launch in 2017, “The Daily” has become one of the most downloaded podcasts in the world. Now, for the first time outside the United States, The New York Times — in collaboration with Intelligence Squared — will present a live conversation onstage in London with “The Daily.”

Joined by leading New York Times journalists and special guests, the podcast’s host Michael Barbaro, a former Times political reporter, will explore the uncertainty caused by Brexit and the global implications of the nationalist undercurrent currently sweeping across both Europe and the United States.

Barbaro and producers from “The Daily” will reveal how their team transforms the news into a compelling show that garners more than eight million dedicated listeners each month. Join us on June 6 at Cadogan Hall for this special conversation with “The Daily.”

For the biggest stories of our time, told by New York Times journalists each weekday, listen to “The Daily.” You can find it at or wherever you get your podcast.
