Michelle Obama to quiz Barack ‘s husband on debut podcast
Michelle Obama will interview her former U.S. husband On the first episode of her new Spotify podcast, President Barack Obama.
The ex-leader will join his wife for the series as it debuts on Wednesday (July 29, 2020) for what is described, according to Deadline.com, as “an intimate conversation about community, the love that powers our relationships, and their life after the White House.”
The former First Lady also tackles recent demonstrations by Black Lives Matter at the hands of U.S. police officers after the deaths of African-Americans.
“Given everything that’s going on right now, from the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the ongoing protests and conversations that are testing our patience-and our consciences… not to mention all the challenges we’re experiencing due to the pandemic, I think that these days, a lot of people are questioning just where and how they can fit into a community,” she opens the first episode by saying.
On a lighter note, the couple also playfully discuss their time in lockdown.
Our discourse would also concentrate on the disparities in our upbringings – his in Hawaii by his white mother, anthropologist Stanley Ann Dunham, without his Kenyan father, Barack Obama, Sr., as opposed to Michelle’s, who had been raised by her parents Fraser Robinson III and Marian Shields Robinson, in Chicago , Illinois, and how their cultures influenced them.
Certain guests in the podcast series will include Washington Post columnist Michele Norris; Dr. Sharon Malone in a women’s health discussion; and Michelle’s brother, Craig Robinson, in a siblings talk.
Episode six will concentrate on marriage and star Conan O’Brien, while in episode seven Barack’s former advisor Valerie Jarrett will appear to discuss mentorship.
The series will be out on Spotify.
