Speaking about the new venture, 57-year-old Barack said: "Podcasts offer an extraordinary opportunity to foster productive dialogue, make people smile and make people think, and, hopefully, bring us all a little closer together."
While the statement did not detail specific topics the podcasts would cover or when they would become available, the company said it was a "privilege" to be working with "two of the world's most important voices".
