What A Day

by

What A Day cuts through all the chaos and clickbait to help you understand what matters and how you can fix it—all in just 20 minutes. Comedian Akilah Hughes and reporter Gideon Resnick break down the biggest news of the day, share important stories you may have missed, and show you what “Fox & Friends” would sound like if it were hosted by two people whose parents read to them as children. New episodes Monday through Friday at 5 a.m. EST. It’s been over two months since the military first seized control of Myanmar. The coup was met with a massive protest movement in the streets, in workplaces, and on the internet. As a response, the military has become increasingly violent in its crackdown, killing over 500 people and jailing thousands more. We spoke to Aye Min Thant, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who has been reporting on the coup since February about the country’s past, present, and future. And in headlines: An executive order on “ghost guns,” relief money for undocumented essential workers in New York state, and conflict at Mrs. Sri Lanka pageant.
