Michelle Obama: The Light Podcast Episode 6

As we all know, Black people are always at a disadvantage in professional environments. We have to prove ourselves in every way at every stage. We don’t get the benefit of the doubt. When we make mistakes, we don’t get the same second and third chances that are white colleagues get. Hearing role models like Gayle King and Michelle Obama talk about the impact of instilling these habits in their own children is a big deal. It’s a truly fascinating conversation.


Season 1 of The Light has featured a star-studded lineup that includes Today host Hoda Kotb; filmmaker Tyler Perry; TV personalities/comedians David Letterman and Conan O’Brien; and upcoming guest Oprah Winfrey.

The Light is exclusively on Audible for two weeks, then becomes available on other podcast platforms. New episodes premiere every Tuesday.
