Michelle - who also announced her show "is now available across all podcast platforms" - gushed about what an amazing journey it has been.

"Today, I’m feeling extra grateful for the conversations I shared with loved ones during the first season of The #MichelleObamaPodcast," she wrote.

"And while the pandemic certainly affected the tone and content of these conversations, I will say each episode really felt like a true reflection of the kind of discussions I’ve always had with the special people in my life."

"Because when enough people open up and have vulnerable conversations, amazing things can happen. That's how we begin to break down these barriers that too often get in our way - by opening up and listening to one another."

Michelle - who opened up about her own life with Barack Obama and their two daughters, Sasha, and Malia, during her podcast too - was then bombarded with compliments. 

"Each episode was authentic and you could learn something from each episode," wrote one, while another commented: "Listening to your podcast helped me feel some sort of hope and calmness that I have not felt in quite a few years now, so thank you."

Others pleaded with her to launch another season, and some even asked her to run for President!

Looks like someone is winning in the popularity stakes.
