Backtalk with Baxter Sarno is a late-night television program starring host, Baxter Sarno. He delivers a monologue, in which he jokes about current events. Later he interviews guests. Over half of college-aged viewers claim they get their news from Sarno. ("Reins of a Waterfall").

At the urging of Cyrus Xander and Graystone Industries' public relations manager, Priyah Magnus, Daniel Graystone appears on Backtalk in an effort to promote a good public relations image for Graystone Industries after his wife revealed that their daughter was the terrorist who blew up the MAGLEV train. He is not doing well until his wife, Amanda, unexpectedly joins him onstage. ("Rebirth") ("Gravedancing")

Citizens all across Caprica City watch the Graystone interview.
