Former celebrity Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has announced his latest post-prosecutorial venture — a plan for a regular podcast with his brother’s media company.

Bharara said the podcast would focus on “justice and fairness in the law, government and society” and will be produced by Some Spider Studios, a company in which his brother Vinit Bharara is a primary investor.

In March, Bharara was fired by President Donald Trump. Last week, he announced a book deal with Alfred Knopf. He is also a scholar in residence at New York University Law School, and a frequent Twitter user.

He joked, in a statement issued by the company, that a podcast “permits more than 140 characters at a time.” It will be named for a phrase he often used at news conferences when asked whether his probes had additional targets — “Stay Tuned.”
