so much potential

I was really excited to see this podcast but instead of sharing light, it became a political grandstand. I hope in the future the politics will not be the massage and it will be more about sharing light.

Totally amazing!

Michelle Obama's voice is so relaxing, it really catches you deeply.
The way she's shared all her anecdotes, healing processes and even though how she managed to be a Mom and a First Lady at the same time, keeping her feet on the ground, is absolutely remarkable.

it's an honour to listen to Michelle O

Going bare and vulnerable is a powerful way of connecting with people. This podcast has so many stories one can relate to and say I am not alone and I can make it work too.

Just PC agenda highlighted

I like how soothing M Obama’s voice is but overall its a boring podcast when compared to podcasts such as Joe Rogan Experience, Call her daddy etc
