The first episode of 'Why Am I Telling You This?' will feature an interview with jazz musician Wynton Marsalis.
Former President Bill Clinton has released the first episode of his new podcast with iHeartMedia.
Why Am I Telling You This? will feature Clinton in conversation with some of the experts across a wide range of topics that interest him. The first episode features a sit-down with jazz artist Wynton Marsalis, who discusses his life and recent works The Ever Fonky Lowdown and The Democracy! Suite. Clinton was known for playing the saxophone during his presidential campaign.
"Growing up in Arkansas just after World War II in a family that didn't have a lot of money, most of our entertainment revolved around storytelling. Listening to my relatives and neighbors tell stories showed me that everyone has a story, and that everyone's story has value," Clinton said in a statement. "I always thought that the main point of my work was to give people a chance to have better stories. Once you’ve heard a person's hopes and fears, where they’ve been and where they want to go, your differences slip away -- you become people first. Now more than ever, we need those kinds of connections."
