The episode will be available to stream for free exclusively on Apple TV+ beginning Thursday, July 30 at 4pm PST.

The description reads, “Filmed remotely and incorporating audience engagement, Oprah will lead timely and intimate discussions with today’s foremost newsmakers, thought leaders, and masters of their craft.
