Michelle Obama Launches Podcast Based on ‘The Light We Carry’

Michelle Obama’s recent celebrity-filled book tour is turning into a podcast.

Audible announced on Wednesday that the former First Lady will launch the “Michelle Obama: The Light Podcast” on March 7. It’s based on Obama’s tour to promote her latest best-selling book, The Light We Carry, and features special guests Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres, Tyler Perry, David Letterman and more.

“Although only a few thousand people were able to attend the events live, these remarkable conversations can now be heard by all,” Audible said in a press release. The eight-episode podcast “goes beyond the book as Michelle Obama and her friends share personal stories and insights listeners won’t find anywhere else.”

Obama said in a statement that the book tour was a way to expand on the book’s reflections on dealing with stress and change, and a chance to “reconnect with real people.” The podcast, she said, is “a deeper exploration of those fun and meaningful moments.”

The podcast is the first original project in a multi-year deal between Audible and Higher Ground Productions, started by Barack and Michelle Obama after they left the White House. The company has produced several acclaimed documentaries, including the Oscar-winning film American Factory.

Episodes of The Light Podcast will be exclusive to Audible for two weeks, after which they will be widely distributed on other podcast platforms.
