In an illuminating and inspiring conversation, the former first lady explores themes from her new #1 New York Times bestselling book The Light We Carry and accompanying new series “The Light Podcast”
New York, NY (March 28, 2023)—Audacy’s Cadence13 Studios today announced that former First Lady Michelle Obama sat down for an in-depth, intimate conversation with #1 New York Times bestselling author, activist, and thought leader Glennon Doyle, her wife Abby Wambach and her sister Amanda Doyle on their critically acclaimed podcast We Can Do Hard Things, for a special episode released today, March 28.
In her new book The Light We Carry and accompanying new podcast “The Light Podcast,” Michelle Obama shares practical wisdom and powerful strategies for staying hopeful and balanced in today’s highly uncertain world, exploring how to find ways to protect and rekindle our light, bring others into their own, and light up the world together. The Light We Carry, a #1 New York Times and USA Today bestseller, is an inspiring follow-up to her critically acclaimed, #1 bestselling memoir Becoming.
Topics explored in the interview include: how to develop the one tool that has sustained Mrs. Obama throughout her entire life; how to identify whether you’re deeply satisfied or deeply stuck – and how to reach for the goal of living “comfortably afraid;” Mrs. Obama’s incredible father, Fraser C. Robinson III, and how he shaped her life; how to avoid what Mrs. Obama calls, “Getting lost in the battle of explaining yourself;” and how to live in your own “Enoughness”.
