It has only been available for three weeks, but the appeal of Michelle Obama is quickly proving itself among some podcast listeners. Spotify has released the list of the most listened-to podcasts on its app this summer and The Michelle Obama Podcast came in first among users around the world. The former first lady beat out true-crime shows like Crime Junkie and My Favorite Murder, as well as several daily news podcasts. Other top shows include Harry Potter At Home: Readings, as read by familiar voices like actors Daniel Radcliffe and Helena Bonham Carter. Top podcasts of the summer globally are based on number of listens on the Spotify app from June 1 through August 15, 2020.
