The apparently inexorable rise of Trump is being thoroughly recorded in every form of media, but this new show from Slate tackles the subject very directly. Hosted by editor-in-chief Jacob Weisberg, the program's stated aim is to cover all Trump and only Trump, for as long as he remains in the race. Regular 15-minute episodes bring us the important stories from a campaign overflowing with plot twists: we hear experts respond to the candidate's casually crazy pronouncements on terrorism, women and journalism, plus readings from his tweets, clips from the trail, and even a live tasting of Trump Wine (spoiler: it ain't good). Though we do hear from supporters, don't expect unbiased coverage here; Trumpcast points urgently to the ridiculousness of the man.
