I’ve talked a little bit about my interest in American Politics in the past 2 years and a half. And I don’t even live in America.
Something else you need to know about me: I love American talk shows. I LOOOOOVE THEM.
So when Netflix sent me a notification about David Letterman’s new show, I couldn’t wait to see it.
“My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman” is an hour-long talk show in which David interviews celebrities and activists.
Season one contains 6 episodes and they will be released one at a time every month.
And I was so excited about his first guest: the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama.
The interview spanned between his first day not in office, his upbringing, education, his family and more serious topics like Congressman John Lewis, importance of the March in Selma in 1965 and the attacks on US democracy.
avid also spoke directly with John Lewis and they crossed the same bridge he crossed with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr to peacefully protest against segregation and to get the right to vote for African-americans.
I absolutely loved it. It was educational, moving and incredibly inspiring.
At times, it was a little bit weird: I had the sensation that the focus wasn’t solely on President Obama, but it also felt like a celebration of David Letterman and of his comeback to TV.
Aside from this detail, it was a great interview.
One of the things I appreciated the most was the lack of mention of President Trump’s name and of his despicable administration and their actions.
A fantastic interview, a throwback into his presidency and a reminder for every one of what a real president acts like. It made me remember what an interesting, intelligent and inspiring man he is.
Other guests will be: George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey and Howard Stern.
Let me know your thoughts about it!
