The music and podcast streaming giant Spotify will launch a new podcast later this month 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.”
Deadline reports that The Michelle Obama Podcast, set for launch on July 29th, will “feature candid and personal conversations from the former First Lady.” The 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.”
Every relationship starts with a conversation.

Some of the guests slated to appear on the show include Marian and Craig Robinson, Conan O’Brien, Valerie Jarrett, Michele Norris, and Dr. Sharon Malone. The show will be sponsored by the Salesforce and Procter & Gamble brands Dawn and Tide.
The move comes as the former first lady’s voter organization When We All Vote, and its celebrity backers, including Tom Hanks and Lin-Manuel Miranda, pushes vote-by-mail as the presidential election inches closer.
