If you’re having Michelle Obama withdrawal, you’ll soon be able to connect with the former First Lady in the coziness of your own home. “The Michelle Obama Podcast” will stream via Spotify as the first from the Obama’s production company, Higher Ground.

“Hosted by Michelle Obama, the series will bring listeners the former First Lady’s most candid and personal conversations, showing us what’s possible when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, to open up, and to focus on what matters most,” both companies said in a joint statement.

Guests of the show will include Marian and Craig Robinson (Michelle’s mother and brother), Conan O’Brien, Valerie Jarrett, and many others, speaking on, “the relationships that shape us, from siblings and close friends to partners, parents, and mentors to our relationship with ourselves and our health.”

Since departing the White House, Michelle Obama has explored ways to engage and lend her voice through the release of her best-selling memoir, “Becoming,” and the mirrored Netflix documentary. 

Her vision for the podcast is one that, “can be a place to explore meaningful topics together and sort through so many of the questions we’re all trying to answer in our own lives.” She continued, “perhaps most of all, I hope this podcast will help listeners open up new conversations—and hard conversations—with the people who matter most to them. That’s how we can build more understanding and empathy for one another.”

The Michelle Obama Podcast is set to debut on July 29 and will air weekly for nine weeks.
