    A Conversation With a Police Union Leader

    A Conversation With a Police Union Leader

    In the weeks since George Floyd was killed by the Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, Americans have been confronting hard questions about bias and racism within law enforcement — and what the role of the police should be.

    Guest: Vince Champion, the southeast regional director of the International Brotherhood of Police Officers. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily

Today, we listen to the voices of P.S. 22 as they harmonize from afar.

The Sunday Read: Getting Out

A beautiful, warm and heartfelt story that gave an insight into so many of the complexities of life in America through the eyes of one black man. It was so appropriate for this story to be released at this time. Listening from Australia, The Daily continues to unravel the mysteries of America. Thank you.

Incredible

I think Michael Barbaro is a wonderful presenter. Thorough, investigative journalism that we definitely need in this horrible, Sci Fi movie we call 2020
