"Hands down the most informative thing I do every single day is listen to The Daily. Their ability to predict what's going to make news that day as well as the amazing reporting of the New York Times, makes the Daily an absolute must for your morning commute. I also love the fact that the show really embraces the "as it's happening" moments of journalism. Being able to listen to reporters get yelled at in the newsroom while talking to Michael or trying to find a phone at a Kinkos gives it a sort of gritty feel that I love. "
