"These briefings include a range of thoughts and opinions," Biden said during one episode, according to CNN. "Some of which I agree with and some I don't, but all of which I think are important to spend some time thinking about."


"It isn't just a collection of stories I've enjoyed; it's part of a much bigger conversation," the former Delaware senator added.

"The world is changing quickly, and now more than ever we need to broaden our perspective and be better informed."

Biden's podcast comes via Ground Control, an audio startup company.

The stories chosen by the 74-year-old will come from several online publications, including BuzzFeed, MSNBC, Bloomberg, Politico, Vice and Slate.

"Biden's Briefings" is available on iTunes, Spotify, TuneIn, Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant. 

The podcast comes as speculation continues around Biden running for president in 2020.
