Mike Pence is starting a podcast to 'share the good news of conservatism'

Former Vice President Mike Pence is getting a podcast.

Pence has joined the Young America's Foundation and is set to launch a new podcast with the conservative youth group, Politico reports.

Young America's Foundation confirmed this "new partnership" with the former vice president, saying he will serve as a Ronald Reagan presidential scholar and launch a video podcast "to share the good news of conservatism through one of today's most popular mediums." He'll also join the group's campus lecture program.

"Now more than ever, we need to take the case for freedom, free markets, and traditional values to the rising generation and I look forward to working with the great YAF team to ensure the torch of freedom shines bright for generations to come," Pence said.

This is the latest job Pence has lined up since leaving the White House after he also joined the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, where his duties will include delivering speeches and writing a monthly column. Pence previously hosted a conservative talk radio show before serving in Congress and then as governor of Indiana. He'll become just the latest politician to jump into the world of podcasting; former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, for instance, previously signed a multiyear podcasting deal with Spotify.
