Spotify listeners can now stream Barack and the Boss.
Former President Obama and Bruce Springsteen have teamed up for a wide-ranging Spotify podcast, in which they discuss politics, race, family and manhood.
Eight episodes of Renegades: Born in the USA were recorded over several days at Springsteen’s Jersey Shore farmhouse. The first two were released Monday for streaming on the site.
The podcast was produced by Obama and wife Michelle’s production company, Higher Ground. The couple brokered a podcast deal with Spotify in 2019.
“The longtime friends discuss their hometowns and role models, explore modern manhood, and confront the painfully divided state of the country today—and offer a vision of how we can all move forward together,” Spotify said in a statement.
“On the surface Bruce and I don’t have a lot in common,” the former President says in a voiceover introduction of the series’ first 56 minute episode.
