The news from series producer iHeartMedia comes months after the show’s initially planned release date, with Politico reporting in February that the podcast was set to begin airing in the spring. 

According to iHeartMedia, the first episode of Clinton’s podcast is called "You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” and is scheduled for release on Sept. 29. 


People magazine on Tuesday said the title of the upcoming 24-episode podcast, which Clinton recorded from her home in New York, comes from the public figure’s reflections on the current political climate, particularly amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

"Over the last few years, when people would talk to me about a concern of theirs or a problem that they faced, I found myself saying, 'Well, you and me both!'" Clinton told People. "It became a catch phrase to sum up that a lot of us are worried about the same things and going through the same experiences."

CNN reported that the former first lady’s podcast will include interviews with comedian Sarah Cooper, feminist activist Gloria Steinem and 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. 

iHeartMedia told CNN that in the episodes Clinton will discuss "pressing political issues of our time [and] will tackle the subjects on so many people's minds, including topics like faith, resilience, and grief."

Earlier this month, a spokesperson for the Clinton Foundation told Deadline that former President Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonJudge rejects Biden request for delay in Trump environmental rollback case Considering impeachment's future We need a social media early warning center MORE is also preparing to launch his own podcast early next year. 

Clinton Foundation Communications and Marketing Chief Craig Minassian said at the time that the show would highlight Bill Clinton’s “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.”
