Former President Bill Clinton is partnering with iHeartMedia to launch a new podcast in early 2021.

The podcast will build on one that Clinton hosted last year for the Clinton Foundation, which is also a partner in the new project, according to a source familiar with the plans. The podcast will be distributed via the iHeartPodcast Network.

The foundation’s original podcast, Why Am I Telling You This?, also featured Chelsea Clinton as host, with guests including Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, José Andrés, Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, early childhood education experts Ralph Smith and Dr. Susan Neuman, Stonewall Inn co-owner Kurt Kelly, NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship coach Dawn Staley and Partners in Health co-founder Dr. Paul Farmer. One episode featured a conversation between former President George W. Bush and Clinton that was taped as part of Presidential Leadership Scholars program, which their foundations work on together. Lately the Clinton foundation has had a recent focus on the coronavirus pandemic and supporting those in need.
