Some of Australia’s most renowned journalists will reveal the stories behind the stories everyone is talking about in daily podcast series The Morning Edition, being launched today by The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

Hosted by journalist Samantha Selinger-Morris, the podcast – which will drop every weekday at 5am – will feature award-winning journalists such as Kate McClymont exposing Australia’s biggest scandals and fraudsters; Nick McKenzie revealing his latest blockbuster investigation or Ross Gittins explaining economics as only Ross can.

The Morning Edition have two regular episodes: Peter Hartcher every Thursday to dissect the biggest issues at home and abroad, and on Friday Jacqueline Maley and David Crowe take listeners behind the biggest stories in Canberra.

The Morning Edition is the latest iteration of the Please Explain podcast, which launched in 2018.

Chris Paine, Head of Premium Content for the metro mastheads, says “It may be a new name and a new look, but the DNA remains: the story behind the story with the best journalists in the country.”

The Morning Edition is available through The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Brisbane Times, WAToday as well as podcast platforms Spotify, Google and Apple.
