Starting this February there’s a new voice in the podcast world, when Laverne Cox takes a shot at interviewing her celeb pals.

“The Laverne Cox Show” (working title), hosted by the “Orange Is the New Black” star, is slated to debut in February 2021. Each week, the show will feature Cox’s conversations with guests who “provoke thought and potentially new outlooks,” according to Shondaland Audio. The show “was created in hopes that it may foster perspectives that might inspire new behavior in each of us, to in turn get us closer to becoming the very best versions of ourselves,” the company said.

“I’m thrilled to be continuing and expanding my relationship with Shondaland by doing my first podcast with Shonda’s amazing team along with iHeartRadio,” Cox said in a prepared statement. “I can’t wait for everyone to hear the incredibly interesting conversations I have had with my guests.”
