If NBA fans thought the hit ESPN documentary The Last Dance about the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls was entertaining, and stirred up more than a little controversy, then a new 10-part podcast series called Beyond The Last Dance is going to be a must-listen.

The podcast, produced by NBA Entertainment and Amazon’s Audible, will debut on Aug. 31 and be hosted by former Chicago Bulls guard B.J. Armstrong and former Bulls beat writer and current Director of Sports Journalism at Northwestern J.A. Adande, both of whom appeared in the ESPN documentary.

Each episode will be around 40 minutes long and according to NBC Sports Chicago they will explore additional storylines beyond ESPN’s documentary and will feature interviews with former players, coaches and journalists.

The Last Dance averaged 12,876,000 viewers per episode including on-demand while over 23 million checked it out on Netflix during its first four weeks on the streaming service.

It was also recently nominated for multiple Emmy Awards, including outstanding documentary or nonfiction series.

Earlier this week, a 1996 Mercedes-Benz S600 originally owned by NBA legend Michael Jordan and was seen being driven by MJ during an episode of the ESPN documentary series was sold on eBay for $202,200.

The opening bid was, of course, $23 and the auction was closed on, wait for it… Aug. 23.
