Tran joins us live. Right now time for "Pop news" with Lara. Good morning, Lara. Hi, robin, good morning, you guys, great to see you all. We begin with quite a team, Bruce Springsteen and former president Barack Obama will work together on a new podcast called "Renegade: Born in the usa" and the eight episode series on Spotify will have the boss and former commander in chief engaging in deep and revealing conversations with each other exploring a wide array of topics including race, fatherhood, marriage and the state of America. Here's a little preview. I grew up thinking, you know, my father was like ashamed of his family. That was my entire picture of masculinity. Did you have to deal with that. See, my father leaves when I'm 2 and I don't meet him until I'm 10 years old when he comes to visit for a month. I had no way to connect to the guy. You know, the guy is a stranger who suddenly is in our house. So interesting and the podcast is being produced by the Obamas' production company called higher ground. Stream the first two episodes of "Renegade" on Spotify right now and more to come. Also this morning, people around the country are stepping up to help Texas, Bethanny Frankel, her be strong foundation jumped in delivering food and water and now it's Matthew mcconaughey's turn. He just announced a virtual benefit that he is organizing to raise upon for charities providing to those in need there asking Texans to help each other. Take a look. Remember, right now is the best time to safely check on your neighbors. Go knock on a door. Go volunteer. If you're a have, help out a have not. There's a bunch of them. It is needed. Matthew also saying his benefit will be held in the next couple of weeks and that he'll give details on that very soon.

We heard all free libraries popping up in neighborhoods across the country. Now Jeremiah Carter and his dad decided to give dogs their day building a box full of free sticks for all the dogs in their Canadian neighborhood and that's just the first branch, if you will, of this library for dogs. Another box just popped up at a dog park five miles away. The Facebook page writes, no late fees and new sticks arrive every week. Enjoy. And as for Dave and Jeremiah they say they're not done yet. They hope to branch out to more neighborhoods soon to connect with other dog lovers. I thought that was a really great idea. Thanks, Jeremiah and now back to you guys in the studio. And thank you, Lara. Appreciate it. We turn to our "Gma" cover
