Hillary Clinton is launching her own podcast

From: https://www.engadget.com/2020/02/28/hillary-clinton-podcast/

Hillary Clinton is launching her own podcast. The former Senator and US secretary of state has teamed up with iHeartMedia, confirming an earlier report from Politico. It's yet another example of how big and influential podcasts have become in recent years, and the report comes just a couple of days after Oprah's company revealed that it's releasing 25 years' worth of episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show in podcast form. She's also hardly the first big-name politician to experiment with the format: in mid-2019, Spotify signed the Obamas to an exclusive podcast deal.

Clinton herself was inspired to develop a show by other podcasts, Politico says, particularly ones which had her as a guest in the past. She was apparently struck by how different a long podcast interview feels compared to short TV and radio guestings when she and daughter Chelsea Clinton sat with Conan O'Brien for Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend. Clinton reportedly enjoyed the relaxed environment at Howard Stern's studio when he had her as a guest, as well, to the point that they ended up recording for two-and-a-half hours.

3. It's good

I've listened to them all, and enjoyed them.

She's not actually a natural at this, but when she relaxes into it there are some great conversations. Plus, there are times when she just gets out of the way and lets her guest talk, and I really appreciate that.

She's had a really good mix of guests on, including Kamala Harris, too, as well as people I've never heard of but am glad I did through her podcast.

I recommend it and am looking forward to season 2 which starts in February.
