The publisher’s web description of the podcast reads:
“Each morning, the President of the United States receives a highly classified briefing on the most important issues facing the country — The President’s Daily Brief. Now you can hear your very own PDB, in the form of a podcast hosted by former CIA Operations Officer Bryan Dean Wright. Each morning at 6 am Eastern, he’ll bring you 20 minutes of the most important topics of the day and why you should care, arming you with what you need to know to help solve America’s most pressing challenges.”
Additionally, from the web site Intelligence.gov a description of the real PDB reads:
“The PDB has been presented in some form to the president since 1946, when President Harry S. Truman received the Daily Summary. Over the years, the PDB has evolved to meet the needs and preferences of each president and has expanded to include more information. (The original Daily Summary was not an all-source publication and reported only on foreign intelligence matters.) In 2014, the PDB transitioned from a print product to electronic delivery at the request of President Barack Obama. Learn more about the history of the PDB at CIA.gov.”
This podcast was recently recommended by a neighbor and friend who works with this web site. If you are like many of us and just tired of the constant flood of news, misinformation, and negativity this is a great way to stay grounded in facts. The podcast is not without opinion, but it is minimal.
We can definitely recommend that you add this podcast to your daily listening. Most episodes last from twenty to twenty-five minutes and you will feel better armed to take on the day.
This is a free podcast and can be found at a number of sources with just a simple internet search.
