Barack Obama, Bruce Springsteen Launch New Spotify Podcast Series

Spotify has launched an eight-episode podcast series featuring former president Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen.

The wide-ranging “deep and revealing” conversation between the two longtime friends is titled “Renegades: Born in the USA.”

It is the second podcast to launch through Spotify’s partnership with Barack Obama and Michelle Obama‘s Higher Ground.

“Over the course of the season, President Obama and Springsteen will explore topics of race, fatherhood, marriage, and the future of America,” Spotify said in a statement.

“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,” the statement added.

The Democratic ex-President asks in the introduction of the first episode of the podcast, “How did we get here? How could we find our way back to a more unifying American story?”

Though Obama and Springsteen have very different backgrounds and careers, they formed a deep friendship since meeting for the first time in 2008.
