Dive In

In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys. We still share a fundamental belief in the American ideal.

That’s Barack Obama announcing his new gig as a podcast host—duties he will be sharing with none other than Bruce Springsteen. Spotify dropped two of eight episodes of ‘Renegades: Born in the USA’. Podcasting is a popular pastime for ex-presidents in America. Bill Clinton launched his own show earlier this month. Of course, PM Modi beat them all to it with the OG podcast, his radio show ‘Mann ki Baat’.
