Hillary Clinton to launch podcast with iHeartMedia

Titles You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton, the ex-Secretary of State is down for hosting an iHeartRadio Original Podcast. It’s too facile to say this project was inspired by Michelle Obama’s show on Spotify, but it does optically represent a counterpoint.

Launching september 29, it’ll be a conversational program, featuring what we think is a pretty interesting lineup of guests, including Sarah Cooper, Gloria Steinem, Stacey Abrams, Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, Samin Nosrat, Patton Oswald, and Tan France. Here’s the blurb: “Powered by honest, in-depth conversations, the new podcast will cover everything from the pressing political issues of our time to the challenges of cooking in quarantine. With help from her guests, Hillary will tackle the subjects on so many people’s minds, including topics like faith, resilience, and grief.”

“I’m excited to bring these eye-opening, powerful, sometimes hilarious conversations to the forefront and open up new avenues of discussion with some of the people I find most fascinating,” said Clinton. “This podcast is a chance to talk about subjects that are too often overlooked and share the inspiration and education I’ve gotten from my guests.”

This from Conal Byrne, President of the iHeartPodcast Network: “Hillary, being the first woman on the ballot in a general election for president, is one of the great political leaders of our time, and we are delighted to partner with her on this project,” said Conal Byrne, President of the iHeartPodcast Network. You and Me Both will provide listeners with an astute, nuanced look at what’s happening in the world right now — and Hillary is the perfect moderator for those discussions. We’re excited to incorporate her voice and unique perspective into the ever-expanding library of iHeartRadio Originals.”
