Before launching “The Daily,” Barbaro covered Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign; after Barbaro co-authored a piece about Trump’s history with women as a private citizen, Candidate Trump called on Twitter for his resignation, an honor to which most journalists can only aspire. Since transforming into a podcast host, Barbaro has evolved from a mere byline into a personality. He’s smart, but not a know-it-all—a useful avatar for those among his listeners who, while trying to keep up with national news or world events, sometimes feel like a sixth grader who was at the orthodontist when the math teacher explained the difference between the median and the mode. “So, Rukmini, where exactly is Mosul?” is the kind of thing that Barbaro would not be afraid to ask, and his listeners are grateful for it.
