Higher Ground Productions, the production company of former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama, has announced a new podcast exclusively on Spotify that will feature legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen.

"Renegades: Born in the USA," an eight-episode series has now debuted, with Springsteen and former President Obama discussing a number of topics.

"On the surface, Bruce and I don't have a lot in common. But over the years, what we've found is that we've got a shared sensibility," Obama explains in the first episode. "In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys trying to understand this country that's given us both so much."

Topics covered by the duo in "Renegades" will include several hot-button cultural issues like marriage, race, and the role of fathers in the lives of children.

🔦 Springsteen will stand before a New Jersey court Wednesday after being arrested in November for driving while intoxicated.
