Spotify and Higher Ground Productions have announced the launch of their first podcast, The Michelle Obama Podcast. The show will start on July 29, 2020, and is the first of a multi-series multi-year partnership.
The series will be hosted by the former First Lady and highlight her most candid and personal conversations. The episodes will focus on the relationships in our lives and how they impact who we become. Those subjects will range form siblings and close friends to partners, parents, and more.
“My hope is that this series can be a place to explore meaningful topics together and sort through so many of the questions we’re all trying to answer in our own lives,” Michelle Obama said. “Perhaps most of all, I hope this podcast will help listeners open up new conversations—and hard conversations—with the people who matter most to them. That’s how we can build more understanding and empathy for one another.”
Appearing with Mrs. Obama in special guest roles are Marian and Craig Robinson, Conan O’Brien, Valerie Jarett, Michele Norris and Dr. Sharon Malone MD.
