What's Newscast about?

The UK’s flagship daily news podcast from the BBC, Newscast dives into the day’s big stories so you’re never out of your depth.

Newscast picks the brains of BBC News experts so you’re ready if someone picks yours, covering the latest developments in politics in Westminster and beyond, what the cost of living means for the money in your pocket and the impact of climate change.

Can Rishi Sunak bring down inflation? Will Sir Keir Starmer and the Labour Party win the next general election? Is Brexit working and what will be uncovered in the Covid inquiry? Newscast will give you all the best insights from BBC News so you’re across all the day’s top stories.

Newscast is hosted by trusted journalists including Adam Fleming, BBC Political Editor Chris Mason, Laura Kuenssberg and Paddy O’Connell. Joined by special guests, including Lyse Doucet, Katya Adler, Marianna Spring, John Simpson and Victoria Derbyshire among others.

With potentially just under a year until the general election, Newscast will track all the developments from Westminster - as well as following all the big developments around the world, from Israel-Gaza, Ukraine to the United States.

Catch Newscast seven-days a week and watch on BBC One at 23:40 on Thursday night or later on BBC iPlayer
