Less than two months after his presidential bid ended, Andrew Yang has announced the launch of his new podcast, Yang Speaks, slated to launch this spring with Cadence 13, a leading premium podcast company.
The show will air weekly and feature thought-leaders on a variety of topics, including technology, entertainment, policy, sports, pop-culture, and anything on Yang’s mind, with a general outlook towards the future of our economy and society.
The Yang Speaks trailer has dropped, with the official series launch slated for May 2020.
“The ideas of our campaign have always deserved more airtime than a 60-second answer on a debate stage or a 3-to-5 minute TV hit,” explained Zach Graumann, Yang’s former campaign manager and senior advisor to the project. “We’re excited to launch Yang Speaks and have in-depth longform conversations with some of the smartest and most interesting people in the world, and to discuss the ideas that cam make our future and society a more human place for us all.”
“Andrew Yang’s passionate ideas and vision for the future resonate with millions of people,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13. “We’re thrilled to welcome him to Cadence13, and to the entire podcast universe.”
At the time I am writing this blog, a trailer and an episode of Yang Speaks have been released. The trailer is called “Introducing: Yang Speaks”.
There is also an episode titled “A Conversation with Andrew Yang” that is about coronavirus, the need for Universal Basic Income, and our future. This episode includes host Andrew Yang and co-host and former Yang2020 campaign manager Zach Graumann.
It does not surprise me that Andrew Yang has a podcast. He has appeared on over 100 podcast episodes including: Adam Carolla Show, The Axe Files with David Axelrod, The Breakfast Club, Washington Post Live, The Daily, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition, Chapo Trap House, Pod Save America, Stay Tuned with Preet, The Basic Income Podcast, and The Joe Rogan Experience.
