The podcast is scheduled to be released early next year and is the product of a partnership between the Clinton Foundation and IHeartMedia, a close source told Deadline.

Craig Minassian, who serves as chief communications and marketing officer for the foundation, told Deadline the podcast is inspired by Clinton’s “belief that the purpose of his work in public service is to give people the opportunity to live their best life story.”


“The show will be built on his gift for storytelling, his ability to explain complex issues in a relatable way and showcase his wide-range of interests and well-known intellectual curiosity through conversations about the ideas and events that continue to shape his work and our world,” he continued.

The new podcast won’t be the first for the former president, however.

The foundation also had a podcast called “Why Am I Telling You This?” last year on which Clinton and his daughter, Chelsea Clinton, would often appear.
