Bill Simmons: Welcome to the White House. Very proud to have the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, on the B.S. Report. This is your first podcast?
President Barack Obama: This is — well, I used to have my own podcast.
Obama: When I was U.S. Senator I was way ahead of the curve on the podcast thing.
Obama: So, yes. I mean, I don’t think it had as many listeners as you.
BS: What was this podcast called?
Obama: I really don’t remember. [Laughter.] "A Podcast with Barack Obama." Something like that. It was a catchy name.
BS: I want to talk about sports. You have plenty of time to talk about politics with whoever. How do you have time to follow sports when you have the busiest job on the planet?
Obama: Well, first of all, I don’t watch network news or cable news. So in the morning, when I’m working out with Michelle, it’s on SportsCenter. This is the one thing that she allows me —
BS: That’s nice.
Obama: — to control is SportsCenter. So that pretty much keeps up the family on whatever has happened the night before.
