The Washington Post Launched “Can He Do That?” Podcast



If you have been paying any attention at all to American politics since Trump was inaugurated, you are undoubtedly aware that a lot of things are happening at once. Some of the decisions made by Trump and his administration have been controversial. A podcast called “Can He Do That?” asks that question.

Can He Do That? is a podcast from The Washington Post. The podcast is hosted by Allison Michaels, who is a digital editor on The Washington Post national desk. Each episode is co-hosted by a rotating cast of Washington Post reporters.

Donald Trump’s historic presidency will look unlike any other that’s come before it. From his outsider status in Washington to his family’s continued residence in New York to his complicated business empire, each episode of this podcast will focus on one aspect of Trump’s time in the White House that defines conventions and asks the question, “Can he do that?”

Every episode features original reporting that will illuminate the ways Donald Trump can reshape the presidency. In addition, the host and co-hosts try and explain what the Trump presidency means for people in the United States and the rest of the world.

The first episode of Can He Do That? was released on January 27, 2017. One month later, on February 27, 2017, the Washington Post reported that the podcast reached one million downloads in its first month. New episodes are released every Friday.
