Barack And Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Production Company Signs Deal With Audible

Their current deal with Spotify will end on Oct. 2022.

Barack and Michelle Obama will be uprooting their Higher Ground production company from its current home, Spotify, after signing a new deal with Audible.

According to Variety, the former first family signed an exclusive, multiyear and global first-look production contract with the audiobook and podcast platform. The agreement between Higher Ground and Audible “will reflect the companies’ shared mission to tell meaningful and entertaining stories that elevate diverse voices and experiences,” the outlet notes.

Mrs. Obama added, “We are so proud of the stories we have been able to tell at Higher Ground, and there’s no one we’d rather write our next chapter with than Audible. Together, we will keep striving to tell compelling, provocative, and soulful stories — while doing everything we can to make sure they reach the folks who need to hear them.”

Currently, Higher Ground has four podcasts under its belt, including The Michelle Obama Podcast, Renegades: Born in the USA, The Big Hit Show, and Tell Them, I Am.

Higher Ground and Spotify will officially cut ties in Oct. 2022 after partnering together since 2019.
