Michelle en Barack Obama tekenen een exclusieve podcast deal met Spotify

Podcasts zijn hot en dat hebben de Obama’s ook ondervonden. Ze tekende namelijk deze week een podcast deal met spotify voor meerdere jaren. Naar eigen zeggen is het doel van de podcast “Entertain, inform and inspire”.

“We’ve always believed in the value of entertaining, thought-provoking conversation. It helps us build connections with each other and open ourselves up to new ideas.We’re excited about Higher Ground Audio because podcasts offer an extraordinary opportunity to foster productive dialogue, make people smile and make people think, and, hopefully, bring us all a little closer together” aldus Obama.

Michelle Obama liet ook een statement los. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to amplify voices that are too often ignored or silenced altogether, and through Spotify, we can share those stories with the world, Our hope is that through compelling, inspirational storytelling, Higher Ground Audio will not only produce engaging podcasts, but help people connect emotionally and open up their minds—and their hearts.”

Het is nog niet duidelijk wanneer de podcast zal verschijnen, we zijn in ieder geval benieuwd.
