The series, which launches July 15, will see the trio discuss what it takes to “excel” in their respective fields. Newsom will address the current state of affairs in politics, while Lynch will share insider stories about the NFL. Hendrickson is EVP at agency Wasserman and looks after the likes of Lynch and Maxx Crosby.

The podcast has been in development for more than a year. It comes from iHeartPodcasts.

In the trailer, which you can hear below, Newsom says that there’ll be “no politics” and “tune in to be saved.” Lynch adds, “We bring each side, all walks of life and we figure out what’s going on, and I call that Politickin’.”
