People are fans of podcasts, and some of them might become diehard fans after learning that Barack Obama and Michelle and hopping into the podcast wagon with their own thing.

Spotify reportedly said that they had sealed the deal with the Obamas' production company.

Their company is called Higher Ground, and The Shade Room reports that they will be producing podcasts. These will reportedly be available on the streaming platform.

TSR writes that the Obamas have also secured a similar arrangement with Netflix where Higher Ground is set to produce TV shows and movies for them.

'We’ve always believed in the value of entertaining, thought-provoking conversation,' Barack Obama said in a press release.

He continued and explained, 'It helps us build connections with each other and open ourselves up to new ideas. We’re excited about Higher Ground Audio because podcasts offer an extraordinary opportunity to foster productive dialogue, make people smile and make people think, and, hopefully, bring us all a little closer together.'

According to TSR, both these deals that have been detailed above will 'welcome a voice and platform for underrepresented people as opposed to politics'.

'We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to amplify voices that are too often ignored or silenced altogether, and through Spotify, we can share those stories with the world,' Michelle Obama stated.

Needless to say, this triggered loads of excitement in the comments section.

Some people said that the Obamas should better 'secure the White House' and similar jokes.

Someone posted: 'Oooh. They gonna be even madder. America's favorite president just keeps winning.'

Another follower joked and said: 'Trump will have a better deal with Spotify. He’s the best at getting podcast deals.'

Another commenter wrote: 'The Obamas this....The Carters that... What a time to be black 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾' referencing Beyonce and Jay-Z as well.

Anyway, other than this the couple proudly celebrated just recently the fact that their daughter Sasha Obama attended her prom and you can check out some pics that surfaced from the important event in her life.
