Jesse Ventura just can't keep himself out of the news. Just two days after posting a victory in a controversial lawsuit, the former governor launched "We the People with Jesse Ventura," a weekly podcast that will be available every Thursday on iTunes and Carolla Digital.
That second platform is no lightweight. Adam Carolla hosts the No. 1 daily downloaded podcast in the world. Other notables that have shows on his network: Dr. Drew Pinsky, Penn Jillette and comedian Larry Miller.
During the premiere episode last week, Ventura interviewed Carolla and discussed the Pope and the birther issue.
"My fans have requested a podcast for some time now," said Ventura, who once hosted a radio show in the Twin Cities. "I find it to be a new, interesting and innovative way to communicate with them."
