The former vice president also used the newsletter to announce the launch of his new podcast, which is set to premiere later this week. Biden said the podcast will delve into his ideas and plans, and feature experts and people he has worked with in the past. 

The newsletter and podcast come as Biden has used digital media to campaign from his Delaware home amid the coronavirus pandemic, which the former vice president also addressed in the newsletter, featuring a note from his Dr. Rebecca Katz, who sits on his public health advisory panel.
