Cadence13 Announces “Future State” with Richard A. Clarke, Former Counter-Terrorism Expert Under Bush and Clinton

PRESS RELEASE — September 6, 2018

New York NY, USA—Cadence13, the leader in premium, on-demand audio, today announced a new podcast with renowned national security expert and NYT best-selling author Richard Clarke. Over the course of a distinguished, thirty-year tenure at the highest levels of government, Clarke spent an unprecedented 10 consecutive years in the White House, serving three US presidents.

The special ten-episode series launching Monday, September 10, provides incomparable access to America’s sharpest political decision-makers and insiders. The first episode brings Clarke in candid conversation with former President Bill Clinton on the implications of the upcoming 2018 midterm elections. In another episode, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice discusses America’s shrinking power on the world stage. And former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright reflects on the parallels of modern day nationalism to the fascism that threatened Western democracy in the 1930s. The series will be available across multiple platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, and more. You can listen and subscribe free on Apple Podcasts here.

"Every election year we say this one is important, but in 2018 the nature of our democracy is on the ballot. So in the weeks before the election, we will talk about the assault on the media, the rise of fascism, and the importance of this moment in our history as a nation,” says host Richard Clarke. “There are also real and important issues getting lost in the noise of the Trump Show. Issues like cyber war, terrorism, nuclear weapons, climate change, and the future of work in America. We should be talking about these things in an election year, and so on the podcast, we will talk about them with the nation’s leading experts.”

“The fact that Clarke has been in the room across three White Houses, under both parties, gives a very unique perspective. When combined with the amazing caliber of expert guests that join these conversations, it makes Future State the perfect listen, and an optimal use of the podcast medium, as our nation heads toward the 2018 midterm elections,” says Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer of Cadence13.
