Starting March 3, there will be 10 episodes released of the talk show every week, and they can be streamed on Apple Podcasts, as well as other platforms.

There are more than 4,500 episodes to pull from, and the first batch to be released will surround topics like drug addiction, race, weight loss and divorce, according to reports. Regulars of the talk show including Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz will also be seen in those first few episodes.

“As we head into a new decade, it’s a great time for fans of ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ to revisit the joy, laughter and inspiration that kept us all tuning in daily for 25 years,” said Tina Perry, the president of Winfrey’s network OWN.

“’The Oprah Winfrey Show The Podcast’ is the perfect opportunity to look back and reflect, take stock of how we’ve grown and to be reminded that we’re all in this together,” she added.

There’s a trailer for the podcast episodes as well, where the narrator says “Oprah is opening the vault. Twenty-five years of legendary interviews, a-ha moments, ugly cries and unforgettable surprises.”

In 2011, Oprah.com listed the 25 most-watched episodes of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

No. 1 is an episode that aired on Nov. 15, 1988, when Winfrey wheeled a red wagon on to the set that had 67 pounds of fat on it. The fat represented the same amount of weight that Winfrey lost back then.

The second most-watched episode aired on Feb. 11, 1993, and it showed some of Winfrey’s most talked-about celebrity interviews.

One day prior, on Feb. 10, 1993, Winfrey interviewed Michael Jackson during prime time at his Neverland Ranch, with that becoming the third most-watched episode of the talk show.
