Our daily news podcast brings you a fresh mix of stories, with just the quick facts

Sometimes you just want the quick facts. No opinions, no speculation.

USA TODAY’s 5 Things podcast helps you know what to keep an eye out for each day. Mondays through Saturdays, host Taylor Wilson brings you a fresh mix of headlines and stories, from politics, to entertainment, to sports—from across the USA TODAY Network. The show gives you a quick dose of the news in less time than it probably takes you to eat breakfast.

On Sundays, Claire Thornton hosts in-depth episodes about stories you may have heard earlier in the week. She also brings together coverage from some of our newsroom’s biggest projects.
