As the election cycle heats up in the United States, Pineapple Street Media co-founder Max Linsky announced today that he will be co-hosting a podcast with the Democratic US presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. The podcast is entitled “With Her,” a play on Clinton’s campaign slogan of “I’m With Her.”
According to the podcast’s description, With Her, will detail “what it’s like to be on the road to history.” In addition to Clinton being a co-host, there will also be appearances by her Vice President pick, Tim Kaine, as well as other staff members and Clinton supporters.
“What’s it like to be on the road to history? Running for president is a big deal, but on With Her, you’ll hear from Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine, their supporters, and staff about the little details from the campaign trail they’ll never forget.”
Linsky himself has a long history in the media business. He co-founded Longform, the popular app and website that aggregates and recommends the best new and classic non-fiction on the web. Its sub-brand, Longform Fiction, focuses on aggregating fiction content. There’s also a weekly Longform Podcast that features interviews with non-fiction writers on how they tell stories. Notable guests have included Malcom Gladwell, Michael Lewis, Susan Orlean, and many others.
Pineapple Street Media was founded earlier this year as a “new kind of podcast company” focused on both creating shows with outside partners – like Clinton – and in-house.
Hillary Clinton has made tech news a few times in this election cycle. The former Secretary of State called Apple’s battle with the FBI over the San Bernardino iPhone “the worst dilemma ever,” while it was reported last month that Tim Cook and Lisa Jackson would be hosting a fundraiser for Clinton, though Cook has also fundraised for Paul Ryan. The Hillary 2016 iPhone app was also recently updated with gaming features that ultimately help users campaign for the candidate.
The first episode of the “With Her” podcast is available now on iTunes and comes in at nearly 17 minutes in length. The podcast will run through Election Day.
