Barack Obama is entering the podcasting world. Barack Obama, the former president, and Bruce Springsteen, the rockstar, will host a live show all for Spotify.
According to the press release, they’ll discuss “race, fatherhood, marriage and the state of America,” and the first two episodes premiere today on Spotify’s free service and premium service.
Initially, there will be eight episodes in total.
In 2019, Higher Ground, Michelle, and Barack Obama’s production company, signed an agreement with the streaming service to produce exclusive podcasts exclusively for it. Renegades is the second of these shows.
In the summer of this year, The Michelle Obama Podcast debuted on Spotify and then became available on a number of channels, including Apple Podcasts.
The show has been called the biggest Spotify Original ever, but Spotify hasn’t shared specific numbers.
The future of this show is even more likely to be explosive, providing Spotify a chance to gain more audience for its podcasting platform.
