Kim Kardashian’s podcast has knocked The Joe Rogan Experience off the number one spot
| Last updated
1news reported that the social media influencer’s new true-crime podcast, titled Kim Kardashian’s The System: The Case of Kevin Keith, which launched earlier this month, has already surpassed Joe Rogan’s podcast, followed by Alpha Blokes Podcast and Call Her Daddy.
Kardashian’s podcast tells the story of Kevin Keith, a man from Crestline, Ohio, who was arrested in 1994.
He was charged with killing his ex-girlfriend, Marichell Chatman, her four-year-old daughter Marchae, and Marichell's aunt, Linda Chatman, at their home in Bucyrus, Ohio.
Despite police having no evidence linking him to the crime, Kevin was convicted of the murders and sentenced to death row, as per Seventeen.
Shortly after he was sentenced, his brother Charles, began investigating his case and advocating for his release.
In 2010, Charles and Assistant Ohio Public Defender Rachel Troutman collated all their evidence proving Kevin’s innocence and presented it to Ohio State Governor Ted Strickland.
Just 13 days before his execution, Governor Ted Strickland took him off death row and commuted his sentence to life in prison without parole.
That's just one season of Kim's podcast. The reality TV star, along with her co-host true-crime producer, Lori Rothschild Ansaldi, will delve into stories of people who have been wrongly convicted.
Kardashian, a future lawyer, is a fierce advocate for criminal justice reform.
In 2018, the SKIMS founder began her work by helping to release Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced to life in prison for nonviolent drug charges, according to CBS News.
In May of that year, Kim met with then-President Donald Trump in the Oval Office to request that Alice be pardoned.
A month later, Alice was released after serving 21 years behind bars.
However, despite her hard work, the reality TV star-turned-businesswoman admitted she works alongside dedicated attorneys and activists who have been fighting for those unfairly incarcerated for years.
She told TIME: “I always say this is a team effort, I tell everyone I’m the last push at the end. I’m that vessel.”
Kardashian added: “I don’t look at prison reform as very political… The key is humanizing these [people] and taking on these individual stories, to let everyone know that people on the inside are just like us.”
