Hillary Clinton Is Going To Launch A Podcast

Hillary Clinton is back.

While she may not be running for the presidency this year (after failed attempts in 2008 and 2016), Clinton is creating a new platform where she will be able to share her political views where she could look to influence the political environment: a podcast.

“The former first lady, secretary of State, and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee is planning to launch a new audio program in late spring, just in time for her to have a powerful new megaphone during the 2020 election,” Politico reports.

The podcast will be Clinton’s first official re-entry onto the political scene since her historic loss against Trump four years ago. Since that time, Clinton has spent time on the fringes of the political fray only breaking her silence to occasionally comment on Trump or her former primary opponent Bernie Sanders.

According to the report, Clinton does not yet have a name for the podcast:

The yet-to-be-titled show will be co-produced by audio giant iHeartMedia, which produces original content such as Will Ferrell’s “The Ron Burgundy Podcast,” and, through iHeartRadio, is also a major distributor for the biggest names in conservative talk radio. They include a who’s who of right-wing commentators who have pilloried Clinton and her family over the years: Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Ben Shapiro, and Sean Hannity. The Joe Rogan Experience, whose host recently endorsed Bernie Sanders, is one of iHeartRadio’s most popular shows.

But it was Clinton’s recent experience with two other famous interviewers that influenced the kind of show she wanted to create. Last fall, Clinton and her daughter Chelsea recorded an episode of Conan O’Brien’s audio show, “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend.” They were promoting The Book of Gutsy Women, their co-authored collection of stories about women who have inspired them.

Clinton was struck by how different the hourlong conversation with O’Brien was compared with short promotional segments on TV and radio. She had already begun discussions with iHeartMedia, which also distributes O’Brien’s show, and she started to think about how the format might allow her to record deeper conversations with newsmakers that listeners could enjoy well after they aired.

Clinton is looking to use her new familiarity with the casual interview style to create her own podcast, including a particular influence from Howard Stern.

“It was an incredible experience,” a person who is reportedly close to Clinton said, referencing Clinton’s appearance on Stern’s show. “We’ve been thinking through based on that experience how to create a similar format.”

And:

Clinton’s show will feature her in conversation with a brand-name guest, who might be drawn from world leaders and politicians, of course, but also celebrities, authors and perhaps famous chefs. Her team is experimenting with using a Stern-inspired ensemble plucked from the larger universe of Hillaryland to help loosen her up, keep the show conversational, and discuss the day’s news, perhaps at the top or bottom of the show. The search is on inside her organization for a Robin Quivers-like sidekick.

Despite Clinton’s general unfavorability, several people had ideas for what she should name the podcast:
