The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is coming to iTunes…without Jon Stewart. Comedy Central has launched a new podcast The Daily Show Podcast without Jon Stewart, a bi-monthly behind-the-scenes show. Each 20-30 minute episode features Daily Show writers, producers and actors gather around to talk about how the show gets made and fun tidbits about certain segments. Fans of The Daily Show will finally hear the answer to the age-old question, “Does someone really sit in front of the TV and watch Fox News all day?”
The podcast’s first episode features head writer Elliott Kalan and Senior Everything Correspondent Jessica Williams with producer Sara Taksler and writer Jo Miller talking about creating comedy from the tragic issue of sexual assault on college campuses, a recurring topic recently on the hit Comedy Central fake news show. Kalan and Williams also speak with Daily Show veteran, former writer J.R. Havlan to look back at his last 18 years at the show.
