The dynamic duo of former teammates, Cam Jordan and Mark Ingram, are launching a podcast, and their first guest was Saints superstar Alvin Kamara.
You know a podcast is going to be amazing when the preview for the first episode is this fun. The combination of defensive end Cam Jordan and running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara did not disappoint.
The three-time Pro Bowler was the first guest on Ingram and Jordan’s “Truss Levelz” podcast, hosted by The Player Tribune. They went over a plethora of topics including Kamara’s time at Alabama, his Madden21 rating, and his relationship with Migos.
However, there were none more interesting and impactful than Kamara’s newfound interest in NASCAR, something that made headlines this offseason. A household name, Kamara became friends with drive Bubba Wallace who was the “only Black drive in the Cup Series.”
“Wallace is the only Black driver in the Cup Series, and this season he has used his platform to push for racial equality.” ESPN wrote. Wallace joined a car fielded by Michael Jordan. That said, prior to this happening back, Kamara even got Wallace to join the Saints for a practice.
“NASCAR lit, bro,” Kamara started with. He continued in a joking manner with how terrible Wallace is at football.
Kamara also mentioned how he had a relationship with Wallace before he started to take a strong stand for racial inequality. Kamara even noted how he tried to get to drive a car around. From the sounds of it, Kamara’s wish wasn’t given.
In the first episode of “Truss Levelz,” the connection between Ingram and Jordan was obvious. Both drafted by the Saints in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the duo thrived in the Big Easy, helping found a culture of success. Both hold records for the franchise as well.
Two legends talking with an up-and-coming foundation of the franchise were incredible to hear. But, don’t stop at just episode No. 1.
They’ll have Ingram’s teammate Lamar Jackson, Mike Evans, and others stars on the podcast in the near future so make sure check back in as each are almost guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
