My absolute favorite way to spend my 30-minute walk is to play the latest episode of The Daily, a daily politics podcast from The New York Times. Host and managing editor Michael Barbaro, who has a stellar podcast voice, takes listeners through the biggest news of the previous day in about 25 minutes — there's no unnecessary chatter. Each episode is ready by 6 a.m. ET five days a week, and it answers all your burning questions from the previous day's news that you didn't have time to read. It gives me a concise briefing on everything from foreign affairs to the Boeing crisis.
