Joe Biden’s Latest Gig: Curating The News


The following is an excerpt from Kaya Yurieff | September 25, 2017 | CNN.com |
Grab a cup of coffee. Joe Biden wants to discuss the news.

The former vice president has launched a new daily podcast-like program called "Biden's Briefing" in which he shares the articles he's reading.

He's partnered with a new startup called Ground Control to create the audible programs, which are between 3 to 15 minutes long. Topics range from healthcare and climate change to the economy.

Entertainment and sports talent firm Creative Artists Agency and voice operating system SpokenLayer also collaborated on the project.

It's now available via services like iTunes and Spotify, and it's compatible with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.

"It isn't just a collection of stories I've enjoyed, it's part of a much bigger conversation," Biden said during an episode. "The world is changing quickly, and now more than ever we need to broaden our perspective and be better informed."
