New York City NY, USA—Ride Home Media, the daily news podcast company, is proud to present the Primary Ride Home, a new daily podcast covering the key developments in the 2020 U.S. presidential primary elections.

Every day, veteran journalist Chris Higgins—who has reported stories for This American Life, The Atlantic, and Mental Floss—rounds up the essential news, analysis, and comment, guiding listeners through what they missed that day from the campaign trail.

New 15 minute episodes debut every weekday at 5pm ET, timed for political junkies—and all those interested in finding out who will challenge Donald Trump for the presidency next year—to check in with the context and conversation around this primary season during their evening commute.

Host Chris Higgins explains: “This primary season is dynamic and unpredictable, and it’s just beginning. Every day is full of movement and action, and I need to be sure I’m up to date on what’s happening. It’s the most important Democratic primary I can remember, that’s for sure. So I spend every single day reading all the primary news and boiling it down, so you don’t have to. If I weren’t the one hosting this podcast, I would be listening to it—because normal people don’t have time to read dozens of articles every single day about this stuff. If you really care about the outcome of this primary, and the 2020 election, I urge you to tune in and give yourself permission NOT to be nervously reading every piece of news that floats by your feed.”

The Primary Ride Home is available now on all major podcast apps, including Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify, and Google Podcasts.
