In partnership with ATTN:, former Vice President Joe Biden is hosting an IGTV series. The new original series will make its debut on Wednesday and be posted weekly thereafter.

Biden rejoined Instagram at the end of last week, adding to the conversation about whether he’ll enter the 2020 presidential race. He also got a shoutout from former President Obama welcoming him back to the platform, whereafter he quickly garnered about one million followers.

Here’s the Deal with Joe Biden will be 10 episodes long and will cover topics that include healthcare, education and infrastructure leading up to the midterm elections.

“The vice president is, no matter how you spin it, one of the foremost political leaders in America,” said Matthew Segal, ATTN:’s co-founder. “He has a big platform and a big voice. We work with elected officials on all sides that help illuminate important issues.”

After 24 hours on Instagram, the episodes will be available on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

“These days there’s a lot of fluff and misinformation to distract us from the real issues,” Biden said in a trailer for the new program. “That’s why I am partnering with ATTN: on IGTV to break down the issues we all should be voting on this fall. Not complicated policy wonk language or confusing acronyms, just facts—at least as I see them.”
