Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen will launch the eight-part podcast series Renegades: Born in the USA via Spotify on Monday . The former US president and singer-songwriter will talk about politics, fatherhood, marriage and masculinity in the podcast series.
The production company of Obama and his wife Michelle produces Renegades: Born in the USA . Spotify calls the Obama-Springsteen partnership a “personal, in-depth discussion between two friends about their past, their beliefs, and the country they love.”
The two men met in 2008 when Obama successfully campaigned to become the first black president of the United States. In 2016, Obama awarded Springsteen the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest award for American citizens.
Spotify has been stirring the podcast market lately. The streaming service previously captured Kim Kardashian, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle and Joe Rogan, among others, for making podcasts.
