For anyone who missed the extraordinary evening at the Miller High Life Theatre with Michelle Obama on March 14, here's a chance to hear a version of the discussion she had with moderator-for-the-evening Conan O'Brien.
Listen to it here on Earwolf, a comedy podcast.
Obama has different moderators almost every discussion during the remainder of her "Becoming" book tour. Some Milwaukeeans were skeptical about the cocky funnyman moderating such an earnest, honest and important discussion, and even Obama herself said she was "cautiously optimistic" about O'Brien.
But O'Brien was nothing short of wonderful. A few funny quips, yet very sincere, engaged and clearly a huge Michelle fan.
