NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "Stay Tuned With Preet," a new podcast hosted by former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, debuts today featuring former national security officer Leon Panetta as the first guest.
"I am excited to launch the first episode of my CAFE podcast 'Stay Tuned With Preet,' where I speak with Leon Panetta, former Secretary of Defense, former CIA Director, and former White House Chief of Staff. Not only has Panetta been in the room with powerful people to advise them on hard decisions that will protect our country, but he is also someone who thinks deeply about what is right and what is wrong," said Preet Bharara, Executive Vice President of Some Spider Studios. "I have spent my life's career in the pursuit of justice and fairness and I will continue to voice my opinions and thoughts with CAFE. Stay tuned."
Each week, Bharara will be joined by prominent judges, justice department officials, reporters and politicians to delve into the country's fast changing judicial, political and cultural systems, with a focus on justice and fairness. Upcoming episodes will include a look at topics such as immigration and incarceration.
In addition to interviews, Bharara will also use the podcast to answer listener questions, which can be asked in advance on Twitter (@preetbharara) or by phone (669 24 PREET/669-247-7338).
"Preet Bharara is a bold and original thinker, an important and informed voice at a critical time," said Dean Cappello, Chief Content Officer, WNYC and Head of WNYC Studios. "WNYC Studios is wildly excited to present 'Stay Tuned With Preet' at a time when we are all searching for insight and context. Preet is a fabulous mix of insider and outsider, big personality and thoughtful observer. And as a result, 'Stay Tuned With Preet' is full of behind the scenes perspectives and probing questions that will make you think in new ways about the news, the tweets, and the mood of America."
CAFE, the newest entertainment brand from Some Spider Studios, and WNYC Studios are presenting "Stay Tuned With Preet," which is produced by Pineapple Street Media. After the premiere, new episodes will be released Thursday mornings.
