Caitlyn Jenner and Lamar Odom are the latest celebrities to launch a podcast.

On March 18, the former professional athletes announced that they will join podcaster Zach Hirsch — known as “Mystic Zach Hirsch” on social media — for the new “Keeping Up with Sports” podcast. 

The name seems to be a nod to the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” reality show, on which Jenner and Odom both appeared.

Odom, a retired NBA player, was married to Khloé Kardashian from 2009 and 2016. Odom’s relationship with the Good American co-founder was featured on the show.

Jenner, a former Olympian, was married to Kris Jenner from 1991 to 2015. 

“Keeping Up with Sports” will include interviews with celebrities like Amber Rose and boxer Bryce Hall. The show will tackle what it takes to become a professional athlete and the effects it has on personal lives, per a press release.

“Each episode goes beyond the headlines, providing listeners with an entertaining perspective on the personal stories behind the champions, delving into the highs and lows of being in the spotlight, recounting early struggles on the path to success, and exploring how today’s athletes navigate difficulties along their journeys,” a press release said. 

The hosting trio also plan to dissect “taboo topics such as mental health struggles, addiction, and the difficult decision to walk away from it all.”
