The Weekly Standard is pleased to note that The Daily Standard podcast, hosted by Managing Editor Eric Felten, was listed by the Columbia Journalism Review (CJR) as one of nine podcasts to keep up with about the Trump presidency.
The Daily Standard, distributed by Ricochet Audio Network, delivers challenging and original analysis of the news, with an all-star roster of conservative thinkers including editors Bill Kristol, Steve Hayes, Fred Barnes, and others.
Excerpt from CJR: Host Eric Felten quarterbacks a show featuring a rotating cast of writers from The Weekly Standard’s roster, providing a conservative take on the day’s news. The general tone is one of skepticism, both toward presidential boasts and liberal outrage. Episodes vary in length, but are usually short enough to consume on your commute.
“I get to talk every day with some of the smartest, savviest people in Washington. I hope listeners enjoy it as much as I do,” says Felten.
The Daily Standard podcast is available on iTunes, the Ricochet Superfeed and on Ricochet.com, along with the popular pop-culture podcast, The Sub-Standard.
Ricochet CEO Scott Immergut says, “Ricochet is thrilled to carry the Weekly Standard podcasts on our network. Their podcasters bring a point of view and experience that is unrivaled and are must listens if you want to understand what’s going in DC.”
The Weekly Standard, a distinguished journal of opinion and original reporting, reaches more than 5 million readers who rely on its polished prose and sharp analysis of politics, national security, domestic issues, and culture.
