Press Release: Washington Examiner Launches New Podcast with Ricochet Audio Network

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Washington Examiner is excited to announce that we’re joining forces with the Ricochet Audio Network on a new podcast.

Beginning this week, the Washington Examiner launched “Hashing it Out”, a weekly podcast hosted by Siraj Hashmi[1], Washington Examiner’s commentary video editor & writer. Each episode includes a political guest to offer historical context of the news and politics of the day and insight into how we got to where we are.

Ricochet, which averages 5 million downloads a month, also handles the hosting and distribution of other Washington Examiner podcasts, including the “The Byron York Show”, hosted by Washington Examiner Chief Political Correspondent Byron York[2], and “Examining Politics”, a daily podcast hosted by talk-show host Larry O’Connor[3].

Peter Robinson and Rob Long, the co-founders of Ricochet said, “we couldn’t be more excited to join forces with the Washington Examiner, and to bring their smart, witty, and fearless writers to listeners everywhere. It’s a perfect example of how new media can extend the reach and impact of a terrific brand like the Washington Examiner. And with three shows on the schedule, we’re just getting started.”

In the next several weeks, Ricochet and the Washington Examiner will be launching two additional podcasts. One by National Political Reporter Salena Zito, featuring interviews with politicians and voters she encounters on the campaign trail, as well as another podcast featuring the editorial staff of the Washington Examiner, offering analysis and commentary of the week’s news and what stories the editors are working on for the week ahead.
