In this ten episode podcast, Jack will lead Sharon, Ozzy and Kelly on a wild, unfiltered and unpredictable journey filled with laughter, love and everything it means to be an Osbourne. As Ozzy said it best,"One thing about our lives, nothing is ever normal. Our highs are monumental, and our lows are just as heartbreaking.”
In Episode 10 of The Osbournes Podcast, Ozzy bails after a grueling week of touring, leaving Jack, Kelly, and Sharon to riff on topics like Kayne’s latest epiphanies, Bill Cosby’s conviction, and the appropriate language to use on invasive Papparrazis.

Becoming an Osbourne isn't easy. Some would even liken it to being jumped into a gang. But who would know better than Lisa Stelly, Jack's wife?

In this episode, Lisa opens up about moving to Los Angeles against her parent's will, how Jack courted her in a wild nightclub and what it was like meeting the Sharon and Ozzy for the first time!

Now a close personal friend of the Osbourne Family, Ross links up with the family to discuss his big break, the highs, and lows of rock photography and the most pleasant and unpleasant people to work within the biz'.
Kelly agrees to join Jack and Ozzy on season 3 of “World Detour” but forgets that also means her brother is now her boss.

Being part of a family with a medical history as crazy as the Osbournes probably isn’t easy, but it does make for some entertaining and enlightening conversation.

Optimum health has been a roller coaster ride for Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly, and now the family will share the experiences of dealing with their own maladies – no matter how disgusting or personal.
