Barack and Bruce first met on the campaign trail in 2008 and have “formed a deep friendship since”, according to a release, and on the podcast they will be talking about their hometowns and role models, modern manhood, and the divided state of America today and how we can all move forward together.
“On the surface, Bruce and I don’t have a lot in common,” Barack shares in the introduction. “But over the years, what we’ve found is that we’ve got a shared sensibility — about work, about family and about America.”
He added, “In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys trying to understand this country that’s given us both so much. Trying to chronicle the stories of its people.
