Welcome to Morning Meeting, where AIR MAIL’s Ashley Baker and Michael Hainey take you inside the stories people are talking about this week—and tip you off to the ones the editors are talking about for next week. We cover the people shaping your world that you want to know more about (and more often the stuff they don’t want you to know about). And we talk with friends of AIR MAIL—writers, reporters, and style-setters. So listen in every Saturday as Morning Meeting brings you what’s new and exciting from the world of AIR MAIL.

A Weekly Treat
Short and sweet. I look forward to Morning Meeting every week for a dose of grownup trends in media, fashion, and events and the lowdown on something interesting that an investigative reporter has discovered.
This 30 minutes is a charming, little dream come true. Ashley and Michael remind me every Saturday there isn’t just BAD news out there. We can all still have a little fun. Thank you.
The podcast itself is decent enough. I like that it’s available every Saturday morning for company on my coffee run. However, can you get off President Trump already? He’s enjoying some rent-free living in the minds of both hosts. It’s embarrassing and at a level of obsession.
