In the beginning, there were four of us: three producers (Theo Balcomb, Andy Mills and Lisa) and a host who knew nothing about audio. We knew we wanted to find a different way to deliver the news, by telling the story behind the news. And we wanted to break the mold by fusing the audio tradition of narrative storytelling (with its focus on character, chronology and suspense) with the news (with its emphasis on urgency, impact and explanation).
Our little experiment — a 20-minute, five-day-a-week podcast — debuted two years ago this month, on Feb. 1, 2017. We hoped for a modest audience that would grow over time. It grew far faster than we had expected.
Today, that original team of four is now a team of more than a dozen. And we’re now big enough to take a breath and communicate with the listeners who have made “The Daily” what it is.
This newsletter grew out of our sense that you might want to better understand how we make the decisions we do. How we think about stories. How we process the news. How we use sound. (And what else, besides “The Daily,” we’re listening to.)
We’re beginning a conversation — and hope that it really is a conversation, with two sides. You and us. We’ll highlight responses to episodes (good and bad) and answer questions about our decision-making.
From the start, “The Daily” has been about deepening people’s connection to the news and the reporters who gather it. For us, this newsletter is about deepening our connection to you.

Dozens of listeners asked how we chose which Democratic presidential candidates to mention (or not mention) in Wednesday’s episode. So we asked Alex Burns, our guest for that episode and a national political correspondent, to explain:
“The barriers to running for president are lower than ever — thanks to the internet, it’s easier to raise money and get your name out there, and President Trump has obliterated traditional assumptions about who is qualified to be president. But that doesn’t mean every candidate who runs can or should get covered in the exact same way from the start. In a field this huge, that would be a practical impossibility, even if it were the right thing to do. And personally, I don’t think it’s the right thing to do.
“As a reporter, I am most focused right now on the candidates who have clear national constituencies or who are discernibly shaping the Democratic Party’s debate around issues and identity. I also think it’s incumbent upon me and other reporters to be sensitive to signs that that group of candidates is changing — that someone with a big title and national profile actually doesn’t have that much to say, or that someone relatively obscure is connecting powerfully with voters on the ground or through a set of distinctive ideas.
“The candidates we spoke about this week, like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, have all been major figures in American politics for years. Some of the lesser-known candidates in this race, like Tulsi Gabbard and John Delaney and Andrew Yang, have a chance in this race to show that they can be consequential in the same way. But for now, the burden of proof is on them.”About that music on Wednesday
Notice anything vaguely familiar about the music in Wednesday’s episode? Andy Mills, a producer for “The Daily,” talks about how he selected a song for the opening scene:
“We admitted to ourselves this week that we couldn’t go much longer ignoring a crucial fact: The next presidential election has somehow already begun.
“Given that we just finished covering an election and still have a long 20 months ahead of us, we wanted the first scene of Wednesday’s episode to include a little wink between us and the listener.
“We tried playing around with the music. My first thought was to use this song (which, fun fact, is Michael Barbaro’s karaoke song.) But the lyrics didn’t fit.
“Then, I watched Elizabeth Warren’s presidential announcement, and boom — she comes out onstage triumphantly to Dolly Parton’s ‘9 to 5.’ The crowd is going wild. The music sounds like pulling up your boots and getting to work. Plus, we all really like Dolly Parton, so we went about making an opening montage with her song. Here’s that version:
“But we realized that hearing Dolly’s anthem for working women didn’t feel quite right when paired with speeches from Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders.
“Then it came to us: Before ‘The Daily’ came along, we made a series about the 2016 election called ‘The Run-Up.’ I always loved the music in it, and I knew that adding it here, plus Michael’s sigh, would be an easter egg for listeners who’ve been with us from the start. Fans of ‘The Run-Up’: This one’s for you.”
