Senator Ted Cruz launched a podcast today called verdict with Ted Cruz. He sits across from a stupendously softball interviewer.
Cruz said today’s episode was recorded shortly after he left the first day of Senate proceedings. Episodes will be recorded’as soon as I leave the Senate floor’.
Many podcast studios and news outlets have found impeachment shows to be a quick way to build an audience. The audience built up on those podcast feeds will remain even after the proceedings end. Networks may be able to later redirect listeners to new political shows.
