While Honey Boo Boo and the Housewives still reign as queens of the small screen, Joe Biden will now offer a glimpse into his own world in Washington.
On Thursday, the White House launched new audio series with Soundcloud, “Being Biden,” starring Vice President Joe Biden, naturally.
“I wanted to start this audio series to give you all a closer look inside the life at the White House and the vice presidency,” Biden said in an introductory clip. “It’s a fascinating world, and I’d like to share some of my experiences with you. You know, I’ve gotten to meet some amazing people on this job and work on issues that I’m passionate about. So stay tuned.”

According to the description on the White House website, “Biden will tell the story behind a photo–of where he was, why it matters to him, and how the experience fits into the broader narrative of this Administration. From meetings at the White House to travels around the country, the Vice President will share his perspective in candid, behind-the-scenes snapshots.”
In the first episode, “The Sportman’s Ethic,” Biden gives the backstory on a snapshot taken while volunteering at the Whitehall Neck Sportsman Club’s Wild Game Dinner in Leipsic, Delaware. As an attendee of the event for more than 30 years, Biden gushed over the hunters’ strong sense of ethics when it comes to being responsible with their weapons and giving back to the community. He also brought up the Sandy Hook massacre and gun legislation in the Senate.
The vice president is in high demand. In January, a formal petition posted to WhiteHouse.Gov requested to film a C-Span show featuring the vice president. The wannabe show creator said, “Vice President Joe Biden has a demonstrated ability to bring people together, whether at the negotiating table or at the neighborhood diner” and argued the White House should capture “the daily activities and interactions of the Vice President with elected officials, foreign dignitaries and everyday American families.”
