Thank GOODNESS! Michelle Obama, POTUS with the mostus, is going to try and harness all her greatness to help heal a nation. I’m 100% on board.
Debuting July 29th on Spotify, her show will include interviews with her family members and big names like late night host Conan O’Brien and top Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.
The former First Lady will lead the ‘Michelle Obama Podcast’ with Higher Ground, her production company created with husband former President Barack Obama.
The new podcast is focused on meaningful relationships and will include guests like her mother Marian Robinson, her brother Craig Robinson, journalist Michele Norris, and Dr. Sharon Malone, who is married to former Attorney General Eric Holder who served in the Obama administration.
“Hosted by Michelle Obama, the series will bring listeners into the former First Lady’s most candid and personal conversations, showing us what’s possible when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, to open up, and to focus on what matters most,” Spotify announced in a press release.
Obama said in a statement that she’s hopeful the 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.’
‘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,’ she added.
