Bonn: Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen have been friends for life. Now the citizens of the world speak together in the podcast “Renegades: Born in the USA” on socially relevant topics. It’s about friendship, democratic and social values and fair cooperation. Deutsche Telekom is the exclusive partner of the Spotify Original Podcast in Germany with its “Against Hatred on the Net” initiative. The company is actively committed to ensuring that all people can enter into a fair dialogue with one another – also and especially on the Internet.
Barack Obama describes in his introduction to the first podcast episode: “How did we get to this point? How can we find our way back to an American story that unites us more? This has dominated so many of my conversations over the past year – with Michelle, with my daughters, and with friends. And one of those friends was Bruce Springsteen. On the surface, Bruce and I don’t have much in common. But over the years we’ve found that we have a common perception. About work, family and America. ”
The former US President and the American rock legend discuss a wide range of socially relevant topics in the Spotify Original Podcast. In eight episodes they let the listeners participate in their thoughts. Dialogues accompanied by music often emerge without making an opinion. The discourse is sometimes controversial, but always characterized by fair cooperation.
Deutsche Telekom is also convinced: Words must not be used as weapons, either in real life or on the Internet. As a driver of digitization, it is committed to a network without hate. The company is committed to ensuring that all people can enter into a fair dialogue with one another. With 44 partners, Telekom is fighting for a network in which people can move freely without fear of exclusion.
In each of the eight episodes of the podcast there are contextual references to the initiative “Against Hate on the Net”. Together with its partners, Telekom is calling for those affected by cyberbullying to be protected, to take their side and to position themselves against hate online.
