Hilary Clinton has spent a long time in the public eye, much of it vying for a political office for herself or her husband, former President Bill Clinton. Now that she’s left her presidential ambitions behind, Clinton’s next step, Politico reports, is podcasting.

Following Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 general election, she has written two books — “What Happened” and “The Book of Gutsy Women” — and released the four-part Hulu docuseries “Hillary,” Fox News reports. But that doesn’t mean she’s run out of things to say, as she’s releasing a podcast with iHeartMedia later this spring.

The decision was inspired by her interviews with Conan O’Brien and Howard Stern, but little is known about what Clinton’s podcast will be called, or what it’ll be about, according to The Verge.

Clinton has already begun recording the first episodes, which are rumored to feature conversations with “people of grit and determination.” according to Engadget.

The former Democratic presidential nominee hopes her podcast can “share good news about problems that are actually being solved,” the New York Post reports.

Despite focusing on the positive, the podcast will likely reveal a less censored version of Clinton than the public is used to, according to the Washington Examiner, who reports the podcast will involve “ranting and raving” as well as “irreverence.”
