Always new projects coming from these two.

Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company will start working with Spotify to produce podcasts, similar to its multi-year production deal with Netflix to produce TV shows and films.
The production company, Higher Ground, announced the Spotify partnership on Thursday. The Obamas will “develop, produce, and lend their voices to select podcasts, connecting them to listeners around the world on wide-ranging topics,” Higher Ground said.
“Lend their voices” means the former president and first lady will sometimes be heard on the new podcasts — but their primary role will be in the development and production phases.
The first podcasts from Higher Ground Audio are likely to debut in 2020 at the earliest. Higher Ground and Spotify said they would announce the specifics later.
I enjoy hearing anything about this couple and love that they are doing so much with this post-presidential stage of their lives.
I have tried to listen to podcasts and have just not been able to get into them.
But I have to say that if they featured the comforting inspirational voice of Barack Obama that might just do the trick.
