Barack, Michelle Obama Partner With Spotify to Create New Podcasts

Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company Higher Ground will team with Spotify to produce a slate of podcasts exclusive to the streaming service.

Per a statement, the Obamas will help develop, produce and lend their voices to select podcasts. The shows will reportedly cover “wide-ranging topics,” though no specific issues or stories were mentioned. It’s also unclear when the first podcast will premiere.

“We’ve always believed in the value of entertaining, thought-provoking conversation,” President Obama said. “It helps us build connections with each other and open ourselves up to new ideas. We’re excited about Higher Ground Audio because podcasts offer an extraordinary opportunity to foster productive dialogue, make people smile and make people think, and, hopefully, bring us all a little closer together.”

Michelle Obama added, “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to amplify voices that are too often ignored or silenced altogether, and through Spotify, we can share those stories with the world. Our hope is that through compelling, inspirational storytelling, Higher Ground Audio will not only produce engaging podcasts, but help people connect emotionally and open up their minds — and their hearts.”
