The former First Lady’s podcast was announced as a Spotify exclusive last week, with the show’s first episode set to release on July 29. For the opening, the two have what is characterized as “an intimate conversation about community, the love that powers our relationships, and their life after the White House,” according to Deadline.
“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,” Michelle says during the episode, before introducing Barack, as Deadline previews.
The husband and wife have some lively back-and-forth conversation, mostly about how they spent quarantine. “Like most Americans we’ve been spending a lot of time together in quarantine,” Michelle says.
“You don’t seem too happy about that the way she said it, right?” her husband replies.
“It’s just a fact,” she responds.”There wasn’t a judgment. We’ve been together…”
“I’ve been loving it,” Barack says.
