This is on my must-see list.

Michelle Obama has announced the all-star lineup for her upcoming podcast, ‘The Michelle Obama Podcast’ — and it won’t come as a surprise to many that her first guest is her husband, former President Barack Obama.
The 56-year-old former first lady’s new venture debuts on Spotify on July 29 and will feature a series of interviews with her ‘posse’ — which includes family, friends, and colleagues.
And on Friday, she announced that her 58-year-old husband is first up in the premiere episode, sharing a preview clip in which she praises him as the ‘eternal “Yes, we can” man.’
According to Variety, Mrs. Obama said she invited Barack to be her first guest ‘because he’s navigated these questions throughout the course of his life. In many ways, you can see his entire career as a constant conversation and evolution with his relationship to a larger and larger community.’
During the episode, which comes out next week, the couple talk about the differences in their childhoods, with Barack teasing Michelle that her upbringing was ‘Black “Leave It to Beavers”… only thing missing was the dog.’
They also discuss the coronavirus pandemic, with Michelle saying, ‘Like most Americans, we’ve been spending a lot of time together in quarantine.
‘I’ve been having a great time. But we’ve had some interesting conversations… because these are some crazy times,’ she tells him.
I was not really a fan of podcasts until this pandemic started and I found I had a lot of free time to fill.
Since then I have watched quite a few from all sorts of people.
And trust me I will watch this one as well.
The main reason I will be watching is to once again hear former President Obama talking intelligently about the current state of affairs.
Just hearing his voice often makes me feel much better, and I am quite interested in what he has to say.
I think that social distancing conversation he had with Joe Biden just whetted my appetite to hear more from the man who will no doubt go down in history as one of our greatest presidents ever.
