In addition to a Netflix project called The American Factory: A Conversation with the Obamas, the former first couple has been bush with other projects, as well. On Thursday, Michelle Obama announced her new project with Spotify to excited Twitter fans.
Every relationship starts with a conversation.

Mrs. Obama will host a podcast on relationships entitled The Michelle Obama Podcast, which will cover topical and emotional issues related to relationships. Guest star interviews and conversations will be featured as part of the podcast.
According to CNBC:
‘The Michelle Obama Podcast, which launches July 29, is the first product borne out of last year’s Spotify deal with the former first family’s production company, Higher Ground. The inaugural series will touch on the topic of vulnerability, and include Valerie Jarrett, Conan O’Brien and Michele Norris among its first guests.’
As Mrs. Obama notes, “every relationship starts with a conversation,” and the hope is that the podcast will start conversations and build relationships at a time of great political divide and increasingly fraught tensions. Every kind of relationship, from family to work to romantic relationships, will be on the table as part of the conversations.
USA Today reports that:
‘”The Michelle Obama Podcast” will teach listeners to “open up new conversations – and hard conversations – with the people who matter most to them.” Topics of discussion will include sibling relationships, raising children, girlfriends, women’s health, mentorship and marriage.’
Any project involving the Obamas is likely to have fans excited, especially with the gap in compassion and knowledge left in their wake. Twitter was ecstatic over the news. Read some of their comments below:
