“You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” will start airing on 29 September and will tackled topics such as “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,” Clinton said in a statement.
“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.”
Other guests will include politician and voting rights activist Stacey Abrams, “Call Your Girlfriend” co-hosts Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, food writer and Salt Fat Acid Heat star Samin Nosrat, and comedian Patton Oswalt.
The podcast is being advertised as a series of “honest, in-depth conversations” covering “everything from the pressing political issues of our time to the challenges of cooking in quarantine”.
“You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” is being released by the iHeartPodcast Network. Clinton can be heard in a trailer released on Tuesday stating: “We’re living through pretty intense times. A pandemic, an economic freefall, a long-overdue reckoning with racism, and lots of uncertainty about the future of our democracy. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling like we need some community.”
The trailer then cuts to excerpts from her conversations with various guests.
Clinton isn’t the only US first lady to have launched a podcast lately. Michelle Obama unveiled her own programme, The Michelle Obama Podcast, in July this year.
