Love this show!

Casey and Hayes do such a great job summarizing important news stories while tossing in pop culture tid bits that you might have missed! They have great rapport and manage to keep things light even when the news is....dire. I love when they invite guests on to elaborate more on specific news stories or events, offering new perspectives or insights on the topic. And they keep it short and sweet at 20-25 minutes per episode which makes it easy to keep up!

Informative and fun!

This is a great, refreshingly lighthearted news podcast. The hosts are funny and cover an interesting mix of topics. If you start your day with The Daily, you’ll like ending it with News O’Clock too. I listen every day after work.
