Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is set to launch a new podcast with iHeartMedia on April 13.

Clinton’s podcast will be called “In Fact with Chelsea Clinton” and will interview guests while using her work in politics, international relations, and public health, according to The Associated Press.

In an introductory statement about the show, iHeart Radio said:

The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t just upended our sense of “normal” — it has laid bare so much about our health care, infrastructure, politics, and culture, and the deep inequities built into all of these. But, as people working in public health — and those living these issues every day — know all too well, none of this is new.

In Chelsea Clinton’s new podcast she sits down with everyone from Jane Fonda to Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser to Jonathan Van Ness, and more to talk about how public health affects their lives and ours.

The AP reported, “The first podcast will feature Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness, who in 2019 announced he was HIV-positive; and HIV physician and health equity advocate Dr. Oni Blackstock.”

In a statement, Clinton said, “With more attention than ever being paid to public health, we have an opportunity to expand awareness beyond COVID-19 to other real and pervasive issues that impact us all.”

“On this podcast, I’m looking forward to bringing conversations with some of the smartest and most interesting people I know to a new audience. From stigma to choice to the environment, my hope is that listeners will walk away from each episode informed, entertained, inspired, and with a better understanding of why public health matters — certainly in this moment and always,” she continued.

On Tuesday, Clinton tweeted out an announcement about the show, saying, “Excited to share a new project I’ve been working on – In Fact, a podcast to explore public health issues in the midst of #covid19 and beyond. We’ll talk about stigma, climate change, choice & more. Hope you’ll listen and subscribe!”

Bill and Hillary Clinton currently have podcasts that are on the iHeartPodcast Network, as well. Former first lady and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton recently expanded her work, moving into the new role of political thriller author. According to The Daily Wire, “Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is co-writing a political thriller about a fictitious Secretary of State who joins the cabinet of a political rival and fights terrorist attacks.”

The Daily Wire reported:

“The story follows a novice Secretary of State who has joined the administration of her rival, a president inaugurated after four years of American leadership that shrank from the world stage,” a press release from Simon & Schuster explained. “A series of terrorist attacks throws the global order into disarray, and the Secretary is tasked with assembling a team to unravel the deadly conspiracy, a scheme carefully designed to take advantage of an American government dangerously out of touch and out of power in the places where it counts the most.”

Clinton described the opportunity to write a book with Penny as “a dream come true,” adding that she has “relished every one of her books and their characters as well as her friendship. Now we’re joining our experiences to explore the complex world of high stakes diplomacy and treachery. All is not as it first appears.” 

Chelsea Clinton has published several children’s books in the past and was also a special correspondent for NBC News in 2013 and 2014. She is also vice chair of the Clinton Foundation and worked at McKinsey & Company and Avenue Capital.
