Michelle Obama Podcast segment series
WHO: Spotify, Michelle Obama, and my team at Vox Creative.
WHAT: Four post-roll audio segments (or mini-podcasts, as I call them) to run on Vox Media’s podcast network. In a series of heartfelt interviews with influential professionals, my team created a little bit of audio magic sending listeners to The Michelle Obama Podcast for more of each topic. All segments and interviews are hosted by moi, with audio expertise and engineering by a small but mighty (and crazy talented) team at Vox Media.
WHY: The Michelle Obama Podcast starts the conversations we’re sometimes scared to have. Focused around themes of community, parenting, and self-care, we modeled these segments as extensions of the discussions Michelle prompts on her podcast. The result? Four five-minute real, honest, and entirely raw conversations helping us learn more about what it means to be human.
Interviewees include Mia Birdsong, Michelle Kennedy, Alex Elle, Tunde Oyeneyin, Adam Grant, Vashti Harrison, Annu Subramanian, and Shantae Howell.
