Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are leaving Spotify for greener pastures at audiobook titan Audible.
The political power couple made their podcasting start at Spotify with a series of shows from their production company, Higher Ground.
Now, the Obamas are moving their audio content to Audible, an Amazon-owned platform known more for its books on tape than its original programming.
"At Higher Ground, we have always sought to lift up voices that deserve to be heard — and Audible is invested in realizing that vision alongside us," Barack Obama said of the deal in an Audible press release. "I’m looking forward to partnering with them to tell stories that not only entertain but also inspire."
