This week, days after making an appearance at an Ultimate Fighting Championship fight in Las Vegas, the ex-president is expected to be featured on the popular podcast “UFC Unfiltered.”
This spring he recorded an interview on “Full Send,” a podcast hosted by the “Nelk Boys,” a comedian and prankster trio. There have also been talks about Trump doing an interview on Barstool Sports, a sports and pop culture behemoth especially popular among young men.
