The music- and podcast-streaming giant Spotify will launch a new podcast on July 29th hosted by former First Lady Michelle Obama, addressing “topics and issues” ranging from the coronavirus pandemic to what she calls America’s “nationwide reckoning with race.”
The Michelle Obama Podcast will be produced by Obama’s own independent production company Higher Ground, and will seek to “show us what’s possible when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, to open up, and to focus on what matters most.”
“What I love about these conversations is that they’re topics and issues that we’re all dealing with, no matter what’s going on whether that’s a global pandemic or a nationwide reckoning with race,” Michelle said in a video announcing her new show. “My hope is that this podcast can be a place for us to sort through the questions we’re all trying to answer.”
The left knows politics is downstream from culture, and a Michelle Obama podcast will influence the culture.
