America’s former first lady, Michelle Obama, announced that she’d be launching her own podcast soon on Thursday. To make this P.S.A., Michelle went on Twitter and penned, “I’m thrilled to announce a new project: The #MichelleObamaPodcast with @Spotify! It’s been a tough year, and I hope this podcast can help us explore what we’re going through and spark new conversations with our loved ones. I can’t wait for you all to listen on July 29!”
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Barack Obama spoke about the show’s goal, saying, “I hope that this series can be a place to explore important 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.”
The show will debut on July 29th, 2020.
