Welcome to your 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, usually in 20 minutes or less 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 and less noise.
It’s hosted by award-winning journalist Jer Staes. He is often joined by a rotating crew including Fletcher Sharpe on sports, man about town Devon O’Reilly, Dr. Paul Thomas on the pandemic, and a number of interesting 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, Phillip Lewis, Abdul El-Sayed, Roman Mars and others, our primary criteria (regardless of following!) is a local focus with compelling ideas and/or doing interesting things.
