When we asked conference participants to send us their favorite episodes, Dave Winer sent us his master list from Podcatch, which compiles everything he’s listening to right now. First up on the list is the new podcast “The Daily” from The New York Times, hosted by veteran reporter Michael Barbaro. Releasing twenty minute episodes by 6am (daily), this podcast doesn’t quite conform to either typical podcasts or radio. It’s seeking a more intimate form of reporting, moving away from sensationalized headlines and towards transparency and conversation. Below is the most recent episode about a NYT reporter’s yearlong investigation into controversial police tactics.
