Michelle Obama announced she’s launching The Michelle Obama Podcast July 29 on Spotify.

“I’m thrilled to announce a new project: The #MichelleObamaPodcast with @Spotify!” the former first lady tweeted on Thursday.  “It’s been a tough year and I hope this podcast can help us explore what we’re going through and spark new conversations with our loved ones. I can’t wait for you all to listen on July 29!”

Obama included a video with the tweet, in which she revealed that she’ll be talking with some of the people with whom she’s closest: “my mom, my brother, my friends. my colleagues and many others.”

“We’ll be discussing the relationships that make us who we are. We’ll be talking about the challenges and the joys of being a parent or a spouse.  The friendships that help us through the toughest times. Or, the growth we experience when we lean on the colleagues and mentors around us,” she continued.

“My hope is that this podcast can be a place for us to sort through the questions that we’re all trying to answer,” she continues. “A place to open up and be a little vulnerable, and have some fun along the way.”

“Maybe it will inspire you to have some conversations with loved ones that you’ve been meaning to have,” Obama added.
