Jason Kelce admitted that having a podcast with his younger brother Travis has been beneficial to their brotherly relationship.
The Kelce Brothers launched their podcast ‘New Heights’ in September 2022 and it has since become the number one sports podcast on Spotify and Apple Music. On Friday, the Philadelphia Eagles star appeared on Green light with Chris Long and said his weekly football show has brought him and Travis closer.
“It’s been fun doing it another year, talking to my brother,” Kelce said. “I haven’t been that connected to Travis in the last two years, since college.”
‘And that’s been one of the best things, probably the best, about the podcast. It forces us: since we are brothers, before we spent months alone without speaking to each other. “We would text him, we would send him a funny video, but to actually sit down and talk to him would be a long time.”
For the podcast’s continued success, Kelce credited the people working behind the scenes, stating that he and Travis have to do “minimal” work. He also acknowledged how they have gotten better at running the program over time.

The Kelces played together in Cincinnati before being drafted by different NFL teams.
“They explained everything to us, (our) intern Brandon does a phenomenal job,” Jason shared.
“It’s been fantastic, it’s the second year and I think we’ve improved a lot.” I feel like, first of all, we have a tremendous team: our contribution is minimal, we just talk.”
Jason and Travis attended the University of Cincinnati during their college careers. The two went their separate ways in 2011 when Jason was drafted by the Eagles. Two years later, Travis joined him in the NFL, but left more than 1,000 miles away in Kansas City.
The brothers have had a lot of success in their professional careers: Jason won a Super Bowl and Travis is one win away from his third.
The New Heights podcast also played a major role in Travis’ high-profile relationship with pop star Taylor Swift.

The podcast became an outlet for Travis to express his interest in his girlfriend Taylor Swift.
In July, the Chiefs tight end revealed on the podcast that he tried to pass a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it to Swift during his show in Kansas City. Months later, the power couple began dating and went public with their relationship in September.
Jason continued by commenting on the conversations they share on the show, including some about Travis’ love life.
“By doing this, you know that once a week we’re going to sit down and talk,” Jason said. And we’re going to have very meaningful conversations, fun conversations and we’re going to really know where each of us are in our lives and that’s the most fun part.
‘It has reached a higher level thanks to many different factors, including my brother’s love life. But I think it’s fun to see people enjoying it and it’s fun to see where it’s at.”
