Michelle Obama always has the right words to say to make people feel inspired and informed, and that is what she had been doing with her very own podcast "The Michelle Obama Podcast."

The former first lady launched the podcast on July 29 on Spotify to share her conversations with her loved ones and colleagues on the topic of relationships and how they made them who they are.

In the episode, Obama talks to her mother and brother about the lessons they have decided to pass on to their children as parents. With an honest conversation, Obama intended to give her listeners an idea of how to know and understand their loved ones better.

HOW MICHELLE RAISED HER KIDS

In one instance, when Craig was a kid, Marian confronted the police officers who accused him of stealing his own bike. Although the officers were Black, they kept pressing Craig. One of them even confessed later that he knew he was telling the truth.

Obama has instilled some great values in her daughters, too. In her podcast, she talked about how she made sure that her girls were raised with some normalcy during their time in the White House. They had adequate freedom in their house but at the same time, they were grounded.
