Philadelphia Eagles' star Jason Kelce has recently suggested why he won't invite global pop sensation Taylor Swift to his podcast, "New Heights," co-hosted with his brother Travis Kelce. In a recent interview with NFL on NBC, Jason humorously dismissed the idea, explaining that it would be "too obvious," and he fears Travis might take issue with it.

Jason's podcast aspirations take a more familial route, as he playfully selected his Aunt Judy as the top choice for their podcast. He exclaimed, "We gotta get Aunt Judy; I'm gonna keep it easy." The Kelce brothers seem to prioritise a personal touch in their podcast over celebrity guests.

"New Heights" podcast was launched by the Kelce siblings last year, focusing on providing insightful commentary on the NFL and dissecting the top plays of each week. However, their personal lives have become a prominent aspect of the podcast, especially since Taylor Swift's relationship with Travis Kelce started making headlines.

Travis's Candid Love for Taylor

Swift and Travis, the star tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, have been the center of attention for NFL and music fans alike. Their public date nights and Swift's appearances at Chiefs games have been frequent subjects of discussion on "New Heights" podcast episodes.

In one memorable episode from July, Travis expressed his admiration for Swift, revealing that he attended her Eras Tour concert at Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs' home turf. However, despite the concert attendance, he humorously admitted missing an opportunity to gift her a homemade friendship bracelet.

As their relationship developed and grew more private, Travis invited Swift to witness his performances at Arrowhead Stadium. Swift accepted the invitation, attending a Chiefs game and sitting in Travis's private box alongside his mother, Donna Kelce, marking a significant moment for both the couple and Chiefs fans.

Jason Kelce's decision to keep it within the family on his podcast reflects his intention to maintain a personal and genuine approach to podcasting. While Taylor Swift may not appear on "New Heights" anytime soon, fans can continue to enjoy the Kelce brothers' insightful NFL commentary and entertaining banter on their podcast.
