Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama left Spotify in April. It didn’t take them long to find a new home for their content as the Obamas’ media company, Higher Ground, and Audible have reached a multi-year deal.
press release announced the exclusive, worldwide, multi-project, multi-year first-look production deal will see the collaboration supporting Higher Ground’s commitment to audio.
“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. I’m looking forward to partnering with them to tell stories that not only entertain but also inspire,” President Obama said. 
“We are so proud of the stories we have been able to tell at Higher Ground, and there’s no one we’d rather write our next chapter with than Audible. Together, we will keep striving to tell compelling, provocative, and soulful stories—while doing everything we can to make sure they reach the folks who need to hear them,” Michelle Obama said.
The slate of Audible programs will reflect the companies’ shared task to convey meaningful and entertaining stories that promote diverse voices and backgrounds.
“We have long recognized President and Mrs. Obama’s historic capacity to captivate,” Don Katz, Audible’s Founder and Executive Chairman, stated. 
“We are thrilled to welcome two of the most profound voices of moral and intellectual leadership of our times into the Audible fold, and to be able to elevate President and Mrs. Obama’s singular ability to provide hope and uplifting guidance—needed now more than ever—through their voices.”

Musk is seeking to buy Twitter for $44 billion, but before that occurs, he states that several “unresolved matters” will need resolving before he can move ahead with the takeover.

The saga between Elon Musk and Twitter to a complete a deal remains ongoing. CNBC reports Musk says there are three significant obstacles to overcome before the Tesla CEO can complete his purchase of Twitter.
Musk is seeking to buy Twitter for $44 billion, but before that occurs, he states that several “unresolved matters” will need resolving before he can move ahead with the takeover.
It’s been no secret that one of Musk’s concerns about the number of fake accounts on Twitter. The entrepreneur says he wants more clarity from Twitter on how many of its users are genuine.
The second aspect that needs to be addressed for Musk is the portion of debt required to finance the purchase of Twitter. He’s committed to paying $33.5 billion in cash for the company while receiving $7.1 billion in equity financing pledges from investors.
Regarding the rest of the money to help complete the deal, Musk says the rest of the funding will arrive in the form of bank loans. 
Finally, the third hurdle for Musk to settle his purchase of the social media platform is approval from Twitter’s shareholders. Investors are expected to vote on the sale in late July or early August.

Tafoya stated that she felt “absolutely ambushed,” as she recounted her interview with the former ESPN radio host during an appearance on Fox News’ “Gutfeld!”

Football sideline reporter turned podcast host Michele Tafoya, who’s now with Salem Podcast Network, appeared last week on “The Dan Le Batard Show.”
Tafoya stated that she felt “absolutely ambushed,” as she recounted her interview with the former ESPN radio host during an appearance on Fox News’ “Gutfeld!”
While on the podcast, she was asked about her “right-wing” views, leading to a heated discussion, touching on various topics such as critical race theory in schools and Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill.
“I was invited onto a podcast recently, and I was invited with this ‘We wanna talk about your great career and your new podcast … Is it okay if we talk to you for about 30 or 40 minutes?’” Tafoya told host Greg Gutfeld, per Mediaite.
“It was someone I knew from my past,” she revealed. “So I said, okay. Yeah, the second I got on, BAM, was ambushed with ‘You’re anti-CRT, You’re a racist. You cannot read the Florida law without it being a homopho — I mean, I was absolutely ambushed!”
The podcast interview featured two contrasting views, but both Le Batard and Tafoya noted during the podcast they’re both in the middle than the far left or right. 
“I think I’m in the middle, and you think you are in the middle, and I’m looked at as far Left, and you’re looked at as far-Right? When all I look at is — man, our leadership everywhere stinks. The Republicans seem ruthless to me, and the Democrats seem weak, and none of them represent me,” LeBatard said.
“Well, that’s — then I wouldn’t say that you are on the far Left. And I wouldn’t — I don’t know who sees me on the far-Right. I mean, I’m a pro-choice libertarian. I don’t know how that makes me far-Right,” Tafoya responded. 
“All I am is a fiscal conservative who really wants America to come together and for people to be able to realize their potentials and not be told that they’re oppressed or that they are an oppressor.”
Following this exchange, it’s when the discussion turned tense, leading to what Tafoya called an ambush.
