Farewell to Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show”

    Listen 0:48:47

    Guests: Andy Greenwald, Danna Young

    Jon Stewart steps down after 16 years hosting Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” So many of us have come to rely on Stewart’s biting satire and his ability to poke fun at the hypocrisy of politicians and the media. And for some people, mostly younger viewers, “The Daily Show” has been their primary source for news. This hour, we talk about Stewart’s influence on culture, politics and the news media and listen back to some of our favorite moments from the show. Marty’s guests are DANNA YOUNG, associate professor of communication at the University of Delaware and ANDY GREENWALD, staff writer for Grantland.
