The former South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2016 contender in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary has announced his latest frontier: the wide world of podcasting.
Buttigieg inked a 20-episode deal with the iHeartPodcast Network which will stream on all the major podcasting hubs.
The Deciding Decade with Pete Buttigieg premieres September 9 with inaugural guest former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara.
Other guests will include activists, politicians, scholars, authors and entertainers, though the focus will remain on the most pressing issues facing the nation in the next ten years.
“The choices we make in the months and years ahead will define America for decades to come. I’m eager to have honest, intimate conversations about the challenges facing us and the ways we can respond with so many individuals I admire,” said Buttigieg.
This has been a year of chaos and pain, but this moment also holds the potential of leading toward a new and much better chapter.
