Hillary Clinton throws her mic into the ring, is launching a podcast

She’s running — a podcast.

Hillary Clinton is planning to launch her own podcast in the late spring after being inspired by her appearances on programs from Conan O’Brien and Howard Stern, Politico reported Thursday.

The 2016 presidential candidate and former first lady still hasn’t settled on a title for her show, but it will reportedly be co-produced by iHeartMedia.

The radio conglomerate distributes programming from some of the biggest names in right-wing media who have been some of Clinton’s biggest critics — like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity, the outlet pointed out.

Clinton’s show is expected to host big-name guests, from world leaders to celebrities, under the theme of her latest book, “The Book of Gutsy Women,” and will be recorded in Manhattan.

Politico reports that Clinton, typically reserved and usually critical of the media, came around to the idea of hosting her own show while promoting her book on both Conan’s and Stern’s podcasts.

The former secretary of state’s podcast aims to “share good news about problems that are actually being solved,” according to Politico, but it will also be launched right in the thick of the 2020 presidential election.

It’s unclear if she plans to wade deeper into the race through the show, but bad blood has continued to simmer between Clinton and the now 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders. Clinton declined to say whether she would endorse Sanders should he become the Democratic nominee back in a January interview with Hollywood Reporter.

“He was in Congress for years,” she said of Sanders at the time. “He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him. Nobody wants to work with him. He got nothing done.”
