In Beyond the Scenes, host Roy Wood Jr. gives listeners an inside look at The Daily Show with Trevor Noah’s most compelling segments. Hear how correspondents, writers, and producers of the Emmy-winning series use comedy to tackle a variety of topics — from racial injustice, to gun control to Florida Man— and where these issues stand today. Each episode of Beyond the Scenes features a conversation with Daily Show writers, producers, correspondents, as well as celebrities, comedians, and experts.
With this podcast we aim to expand on the conversations we’ve started on the show. Each episode gives our team an opportunity to go deeper into issues that, frankly, need more time.
In the first year of Beyond the Scenes, we’ve seen hundreds of thousands of downloads and a NAACP Image Award nomination.
