Barack and Michelle Obama will be moving their Higher Ground production company from its current home, Spotify, after signing a deal with Audible.

According to Variety, the former first family signed an exclusive, multiyear and global first-look production contract with the audiobook and podcast platform. The agreement between Higher Ground and Audible “will reflect the companies’ shared mission to tell meaningful and entertaining stories that elevate diverse voices and experiences.”

Currently, Higher Ground has four podcasts, including The Michelle Obama Podcast, Renegades: Born in the USA, The Big Hit Show, and Tell Them, I Am.

Higher Ground and Spotify will officially cut ties in Oct. 2022 after partnering back in 2019.
