Former NFL star Marshawn Lynch and California Gov. Gavin Newsom are launching a new podcast on July 15.
Titled “Politickin',” the weekly podcast will also feature NFL agent Doug Hendrickson, as announced by iHeartRadio.
“We bring each side, all walks of life, like how we’re doing right now, and we figure out what we got going on,” Mr. Lynch said in a trailer available on iHeartRadio.
The podcast network describes the show as offering “Gavin Newsom like you’ve never heard him and Marshawn Lynch exactly how you'd expect him.”
Although named Politickin’, the podcast will have “no politics,” Mr. Newsom said.
In the trailer, the NFL star explains that the program “is about bridging gaps. You sit down. You come to the roundtable. We need to figure it out. I need to understand where you’re coming from. But you need to understand where he’s coming from.”
Mr. Lynch, who played 12 seasons with the Buffalo Bills, Seattle Seahawks, and Oakland Raiders from 2007 to 2019, was a key player in the Seahawks’ Super Bowl victory in 2014.
This isn’t Mr. Newsom’s first experience in media. He previously hosted a weekly talk show while serving as California’s lieutenant governor from 2012 to 2013.
