Michelle Obama will present her own podcast The Michelle Obama Podcast later this month . The first episode can be listened to exclusively on Spotify on July 29, she reports on Twitter on Thursday.

In a video, Obama explains that for the podcast she mainly talks to people she knows well. This is how her mother, brother, colleagues and friends pass by. "We discuss the relationships that make us who we are," said the wife of former President Barack Obama.

Obama says he likes the conversations because they deal with topics that we are constantly dealing with. She hopes to be able to discuss the questions the listeners have and to create a platform for openness and vulnerability. She also wants to inspire listeners to have similar conversations with their loved ones.

Spotify already reported in June 2019 that the Obamas had signed a contract with the streaming service for podcasts. The podcasts are made in collaboration with Higher Ground, the Obama's production company.

The Michelle Obama Podcast can be heard weekly from July 29. Nine episodes will be released.
