Speaking during the latest episode of New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce released on Wednesday, July 3, Jason, 36, revealed that the brothers are taking two months off from recording their award-winning podcast so Travis, 34, can get back to doing what he does best.

“It’s the end of season 2, which I don’t even know what seasons mean, we just do this show. All that means to us is we’ve got a nice couple of months off from podcasting because, I guess, in three weeks’ time Travis will be in the middle of training camp,” Jason said.

“Yeah, literally,” added Travis.

“And let me tell you, not enough time to do a podcast, especially the best podcast in the world,” continued Jason, adding of his younger brother, “He’s gonna be busy focusing on football, getting in shape for this upcoming season. So we’re gonna be off for about two months.”

“I’m down to pick it up once we’re done with training camp,” noted Travis, who plays tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.

“So I think we’re going to start this up once Travis gets out of training camp,” Jason added, saying that the show will potentially start again at the end of August.

Travis and Jason debuted their podcast in September 2022.

Since then they’ve covered everything from family life, to NFL singings, their favorite movies, the Super Bowl and Travis supporting his girlfriend Taylor Swift on her Eras Tour — including his stage debut in London on June 23.

The podcast has also become award-winning, with the weekly recording picking up podcast of the year at the 2024 iHeartRadio Podcast Awards in March.

In April, Travis signed a new two-year contract extension with the Chiefs. The deal is worth more than $17 million a year, making him the highest paid tight end in the league, according to’s Ian Rapoport.

The month before, Jason emotionally announced his retirement after 13 years of playing in the NFL. He’s since been revealed as ESPN’s new Monday Night Countdown commentator.

Speaking about his new gig in May, Jason said, “I feel incredible. I know what it takes to be great — it takes a great team. I am more than psyched to participate in all the shenanigans that’ll take place this season.”

“I have three wonderful daughters, and my wife Kylie and I, we’ll be taking full advantage [of working for Disney],” he added.
