Kim Kardashian Launches New True-Crime Podcast, Show Kicks Off w/ The ‘Heartbreaking’ Case Of Kevin Keith


Kim Kardashian will be hosting her own podcast series that focuses on criminal-justice reform. 

According to reports, it’s been more than two years since “SKIMS” founder Kim Kardashian signed an exclusive deal with Spotify to host her own podcast series bringing light to alleged unfair criminal cases in the justice system. On Monday (Oct. 3) Spotify released the first two episodes of Kim Kardashian’s podcast titled “Kim Kardashian’s The System: The Case of Kevin Keith.” New episodes will be released every Monday, following the series premiere.

Yesterday (Oct. 3) the 41-year-old took to Instagram to announce the premiere of her podcast, which documents the case of Kevin Keith, an Ohio native sentenced to death. In February 1994 Kevin Keith was charged with three murders with there reportedly being no physical evidence tying him to the crime. Since then, he’s spent 28 years of his life behind bars and has been working alongside his family to prove his innocence. In the video, the reality star describes Kevin Keith’s case as “deeply twisted and incredibly heartbreaking from all sides.”

In an interview with Keith, Kim shared:

“I’m really hopeful for this podcast, just to get your story out there, because I think it’s so important for people to understand that… our system is so fucked up,” 

The eight-episode podcast is hosted by Kim alongside veteran true-crime producer Lori Rothschild Ansaldi. The series is produced by Spotify, Tenderfoot TV, and Big City TV. For Kim, the Spotify podcast is an extension of her increasing advocacy of criminal-justice reform. Back in 2018, she successfully petitioned Donald Trump for clemency in the case of Alice Marie Johnson. Alice served almost 22 years in prison as part of a life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense.
