The 2022 Wimbledon finalist announced the launch of a new video podcast series, Good Trouble with Nick Kyrgios.

The podcast, produced by Hana Kuma, the Emmy-award nominated creative house co-founded by Naomi Osaka, is hosted by Aussie standout Kyrgios, who is continuing to rehab his surgically-repaired knee and is out of the 2024 Australian Open.

Kyrgios made his U.S. debut as a tennis television analyst during Tennis Channel’s ATP Finals coverage last November and was widely praised for his insight and candor in the commentary box.

The new Kyrgios-hosted video podcast series will be available domestically on Tennis Channel platforms and in Europe on discovery+* and Eurosport, in addition to Hana Kuma’s YouTube channel and on all podcast platforms.

The mission statement of Good Trouble with Nick Kyrgios is to explore “the personal journeys of individuals who are making waves by doing things on their own terms.”

The series takes inspiration from Kyrgios’ own career, marked by his bold and unorthodox style and willingness to defy the norm. Producers say Kyrgios aims to “extend that narrative to a broader spectrum of guests.”

“I can’t wait for the release of my new series,” host Kyrgios said. “It’s been tough for me to sit out the last year or so dealing with an injury, but I’ve had a lot of fun commentating and developing my own talk show.

“Hana Kuma has been a great partner and really brought my vision to life. We’ve got an all-star lineup of guests for Season 1, and I can’t wait for everyone to check it out.”

Good Trouble with Nick Kyrgios will drop a new episode every other Wednesday beginning with internationally renowned multi-Michelin starred chef Gordon Ramsay.

Additional guests this season include Emmy Award-winning journalist Jemele Hill, global bestselling author and award-winning podcast host of “On Purpose” Jay Shetty, current men’s top 25 tennis player Frances Tiafoe, four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka, Emmy Award-nominated actor-comedian Rainn Wilson, serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk, and boxing legend and avid tennis fan and recreational player Mike Tyson, among others.

Though Kyrgios is not playing the Melbourne major, he will reunite with frenemy and 10-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic in Melbourne for an interview that will surely offers some must-see exchanges.

Former AO doubles champion Kyrgios is set to record two episodes live during the Australian Open qualifying week.

The first from center court at Rod Laver Arena on January 11 with world No. 1 Novak Djokovic to discuss how creating Good Trouble on and off the court helped him get to where he is today.

Host Kyrgios is set to interview another soon-to-be-announced star from the Australian Open, could it be his former Laver Cup captain John McEnroe? in an episode that will be announced.

Both episodes will be released after the Grand Slam tournament. Additionally, Kyrgios will capture content for Tennis Australia and Hana Kuma, all designed to bring fans closer to Australian Open action. Australian Open main-draw play is set for January 14-28th.
