Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara Launches Podcast

Here’s another show to add to your podcast-listening list — a new podcast by Preet Bharara, the former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York who President Trump fired last March, called Stay Tuned With Preet.

In the weekly podcast, Bharara plans to speak with prominent judges, justice department officials, reporters and politicians to discuss law, politics and culture, with a focus on justice and fairness.

In the first episode, posted yesterday, Bharara starts by telling the story of his firing by Trump. He then interviews Leon Panetta, former secretary of defense, CIA director and White House chief of staff, on the state of national security. (Listen to it above.)

The show is produced by Cafe and available there as well as on Apple Podcasts and wnyc.org.

Bharara, by the way, will be one of the keynote speakers at next week’s Clio Cloud Conference.
