Disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo released a promotional trailer Tuesday for his new podcast — claiming that “I’m here to help” because “no one is listening” to each other amid all the hot air to which he’s now adding.

Cuomo’s subscription-only yak-fest — titled “As a Matter of Fact…” — is set to debut Thursday with guest Anthony Scaramucci, who was fired after just 10 days as then-President Donald Trump’s communications director in 2017.

More recently, Scarmucci donated $22,600 to US Rep. Tom Suozzi of Long Island for his failed Democratic primary challenge to Gov. Kathy Hochul, who succeeded Cuomo following his resignation amid a sexual harassment scandal.

Former state legislative staffer Erica Vladimer, who co-founded Albany’s Sexual Harassment Working Group, blasted Cuomo’s attempt to regain the spotlight.

“Here’s a matter of fact for Cuomo: He broke multiple state and federal laws when he subjected staffers to sexual harassment,” Vladimer said.

“Until he admits to the harm he caused, the only matters he’s qualified to discuss are matters of harm and hypocrisy.”

In his video promo, the Democratic former governor — who has denied the harassment allegations against him — said, “My way has always been to step up, take responsibility, provide people the facts and trust their judgment.”

“Everyone is yelling, no one is listening. And we have lost faith in one another,” he said.

“But I’m here to help change that with a proven track record of working successfully with both Democrats and Republicans.”

Cuomo’s podcast is being distributed by Quake Media, which charges $2.99 a month for access to its tiny stable of hosts.

Another host is liberal political commentator Marc Lamont Hill, who was fired by CNN in 2018 for giving an anti-Israel speech at the United Nations.
