Spotify releases its latest celebrity podcast, this time from Kim Kardashian.
Spotify has released the first two episodes of its latest celebrity podcast, “Kim Kardashian’s The System: The Case of Kevin Keith,” narrated by the reality star with producer Lori Rothschild Ansaldi. The series will feature eight episodes, exploring the story of Kevin Keith, who was convicted of a triple homicide in 1994 and has since been trying to prove his innocence. The podcast will be available worldwide, free for all Spotify listeners, with new episodes released on Mondays.
As Spotify writes of the series, Kardashian and Rothschild Ansaldi will talk with investigators and experts to demonstrate failures in the legal system. Kardashian’s deal with Spotify began in 2020 — the same year the streaming platform closed its deal with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — to produce and host an exclusive podcast for the platform.
Kardashian has been open about her thoughts on the justice system and is currently pursuing a legal career. Having passed the “baby bar” exam in California, the reality star says she has plans to open her own law firm in the future.
“Kim Kardashian’s The System” podcast launched the same day the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged the star for “unlawfully touting a crypto security.” Kardashian settled the case, paying $1.26 million.
The SEC says that Kardashian violated its rules when she promoted a “crypto asset security offered and sold by EthereumMax” without revealing that she had been paid to promote it. The agency specifies that Kardashian should have disclosed that she received a $250,000 payment to publish a post on her Instagram account. The settlement includes $260,000 to represent the original amount plus interest and $1 million in penalties.
Kardashian’s statement via her representation about the charges and settlement says that she “remains willing to do whatever she can to assist the SEC in this matter.” The agreement she reached with the SEC allows her to “get this matter behind her to avoid a protracted dispute” so that she can “move forward with her many different business pursuits.”
