The election is over. But the story has just begun. Michael Barbaro, who has covered the last two presidential races for the Times, hosts our twice-weekly conversation about the biggest stories and surprises coming out of the campaign. The show features Times political reporters, Opinion columnists and data analysts. You’ll also hear interviews with key players on the political scene. It’s the access and authority The New York Times does best.

Power to the People
Michael Barbaro, in his last episode as the host of this show, travels to the National Mall on Inauguration Day to ask Donald J. Trump’s supporters, minutes after he is sworn in, what a successful presidency would look and feel like for them. He then joins three of his New York Times colleagues to discuss what the Trump White House might accomplish.
How will history remember Barack Obama? Former Representative Barney Frank talks about Mr. Obama’s adversarial relationship with Republican lawmakers. Who was to blame? And we talk with David Leonhardt, an op-ed columnist at The New York Times who chronicled the Obama administration from the start, and Jodi Kantor, author of “The Obamas.”
‘Surreal’: When Congress Meets Trump
How does it feel to be a member of Congress right now, digesting the new reality of a Donald J. Trump presidency? We ask a United States senator.
Predictions for 2017
There’s a lot about the current political moment that we didn’t see coming a year ago. Because predictions are hard — even hazardous. But as the final days of the year tick down, The Run-Up wants to look ahead, carefully, to 2017. So we asked four seasoned Times reporters — Amy Chozick, Jim Rutenberg, Peter Baker and Peter Goodman — to offer a guide to the coming year.

Love your show
Love your show also Canadian. Seems like we love you up here.
Well worth a listen
I've only heard six instalments so far, but I've enjoyed and learned from each one. The current election is a bizarre one, and this podcast covers it with a variety of analysts that enables me to understand what's happening.
Love The Run-Up!
Like many Canadians, I've been following this election with a mix of bewilderment, amusement, and grave concern. The Run-Up is well-produced and offers insightful commentary, which goes beyond simple stereotypes of either Trump or Clinton and their supporters. A+
