Kim Kardashian’s new podcast has shot to number one on Spotify.
Kim Kardashian’s The System: The Case of Kevin Keith, which debuted on October 3 with two episodes, has been so successful that it has surpassed shows like Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s “Archetypes” and “The Joe Rogan Experience” in popularity.
Kim’s goal with the podcast is to present the “other side” of cases that so frequently go unreported. The first season of the true crime podcast examines a triple homicide.
The founder of SKIMS recently stated: “I think storytelling is important. People will feel more at ease and will have a better understanding of someone’s background if their tales are shared that go beyond a criminal record.
“Usually, you don’t hear the other side. Usually, you hear triple homicide, and you get scared, especially if they’re convicted. No one’s going to look into [that person’s case] enough to understand, well, there was no physical evidence linking him [to the crime].”
Regarding the result she intends to achieve for Kevin, who was given a death sentence, she stated: “The governor’s commuted sentence would be the ultimate end objective.
“However, I believe that in order to identify the true perpetrator and put them in prison, there must also be an inquiry. And I have some ideas about who that person might be.
The 41-year-old celebrity has recently received praise for her efforts to alter the criminal justice system and is committed to assisting as many individuals as she can.
Asked how she started her campaigning, said previously: “I just saw something on social media that I didn’t feel like was fair, and I didn’t understand it. A woman that didn’t do anything violent, never had a ticket in her life, she answered the phone as a mule for a drug case and got the same sentence as Charles Manson.
“When I saw that, I was like, ‘I don’t get it. How did this happen? Did she need a better attorney?’ I really didn’t know, so I educated myself about it.
“I thought, ‘Okay, I can handle [pardoning] low-level drug offenses, that I can resonate with.’
“But if someone was killed—I didn’t know I could get behind it until I was brought to a women’s prison. Their stories were all very similar. They all committed a crime for their boyfriend, or for their husband.
“I mean, I probably did some dumb s*** at some point and I was maybe just a few decisions off of being in a similar situation, any of us could be.
“Once I saw how broken the system is, I couldn’t stop. I have to help as many people as I can. These people are thrown away and put in prison and no one cares. It’s so heartbreaking.”
