Last night two of the greatest US personalities surprisingly published the first two episodes of a joint podcast. In the podcast they discuss topics such as belonging, fatherhood, marriage, and the current situation in America. The two also talk about their friendship, role models, and modern masculinity. Under the title “Renegades: Born In The USA” we now get an impressive insight into the life and feelings of the two friends Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen.
