The news can be overwhelming. The stakes seem higher than ever, the headlines come at you fast, and it gets harder and harder to keep up with the most important stories of the day.

And that’s why we launched a daily news explainer podcast called Today, Explained.

Subscribe right now on Apple Podcasts.

This week we’ve explained:

  • The six easy steps to nuclear war [listen now]
  • Why Black Panther is the most important movie of 2018 [listen now]
  • Whether hockey could be the key to peace with North Korea [listen now]
  • Countdown to “Day Zero”: the water crisis in Cape Town [listen now]

And that’s just the first week!

Bring us along on your evening commute Monday through Friday, and Sean Rameswaram will take you on a deep dive through the most important stories of the day. This isn’t like any news show you’ve heard before. Today, Explained is informal, creative, and fun. You can hear that in the trailer.

We wouldn’t be making this show without the incredible team that has joined Vox to put this show together: Brigid McCarthy, Noam Hassenfeld, Luke Vander Ploeg, Efim Shapiro, Sean Rameswaram, and the show’s fearless leader, Irene Noguchi.

I am so excited for you to hear what we’ve put together and for you to meet Sean. I hope you like it.
