Welcome to your local daily podcast sharing what to know and where to go in Metro Detroit!
Our dynamic city and region is full of interesting stories and our local daily news show shares them, in about 20 minutes an episode.
Whether it’s breaking down the top news of the day, the places you should check out around town, conversations with interesting people or mini-documentary deep dives into specific topics — the Daily Detroit podcast is local news with more signal, less noise and a lot of fun.
It’s hosted five days a week by award-winning journalist Jer Staes.
He is joined by on Tuesday by Fletcher Sharpe covering Detroit City FC, Detroit’s pro soccer team. We also talk about where sports intersects other areas of local culture.
On Fridays, man about town Devon O’Reilly steps in and we have our drink of the week and discuss the issues of the day.
In between, we bring you stories and talk to a variety of interesting and important voices from around Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
As to guests, we prefer to book subject matter experts who know what they’re talking about.
Although we’ve had a number of guests with national followings on like Kara Swisher, Roman Mars, Phillip Lewis, Abdul El-Sayed, and others, our primary criteria (regardless of following!) is a local focus with compelling ideas and/or doing interesting things.
We’ve produced more than 1,000 episodes. You’re sure to find a few just for you in the player below.
You won’t find another local news podcast in the United States quite like us. Locally owned, locally produced, talking local every day.
