Springsteen and Obama Podcast Recorded in Singer’s Colts Neck Studio

Famed musician Bruce Springsteen and former president Barack Obama have joined forces to create the original podcast, “Renegades: Born in the USA.” The podcast is recorded in Springsteen’s Colts Neck studio. Obama spent time at the Colts Neck studio in July, where they filmed their first two episodes, which were released Feb. 22. 

The rock icon and politician will delve into “deep and revealing conversation” exploring an array of topics from marriage to the state of America. 

In the first two episodes, the pair discussed the rich history of Asbury Park and Springsteen’s hometown of Freehold. Not only did Springsteen reminisce of his youth at the Jersey Shore, but he touched upon the riots that occurred in the area in the late 1960s. Springsteen even performed a portion of his song “My Hometown.”

There are six episodes left in the mini-series. The pair has far more to reveal, in comparing and contrasting their upbringings and digging into worldly matters.
