Former U.S. attorney Prett Bharara is set to host a weekly podcast, "Stay Tuned With Preet."

"Preet Bharara, who fought corruption, financial fraud and violent crime during his tenure as a U.S. attorney, will host this weekly podcast focusing on issues of justice and fairness," according to a tweet from WNYC reporter Matt Katz.

"WNYC Studios is honored to add Preet Bharara's compelling and timely podcast to our lineup. We have built our portfolio around distinct personalities, and 'Stay Tuned With Preet' promises to bring podcast audiences and people interested in our political and legal culture something new, relevant, and utterly engaging," New York Public Radio CEO Laura Walker said in Variety.

In his tweet announcing the podcast, Bharara made a joking reference to President Donald Trump saying he could be "more presidential" than anyone besides Abraham Lincoln. 

The former U.S. attorney has been a frequent critic of Trump. In July, Bharara wrote that Trump would appear "forever guilty" if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller.

Bharara refused to accept U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' request in March that 46 U.S. Attorneys appointed by former president Barack Obama should step down.

In June, Bharara said in The Washington Post that he was dismissed from the job 22 hours after refusing to take a call from President Donald Trump.
