The Takeout: A CBS News original political podcast

Last Updated Mar 7, 2017 6:27 AM EST

“The Takeout” is a weekly podcast about politics, policy and pop culture hosted by CBS News Chief White House correspondent Major Garrett. Listeners can expect context and analysis of the week’s political news in a casual format that allows for expanded conversation. Each episode will include guests and be recorded over lunch at a Washington, D.C. restaurant. Major’s interests (politics, sports, movies) and personality will drive the show.
