Welcome to this week’s iHeartRadio Top 100 Podcast Chart! We’re back with a quick look at the top iHeartRadio podcasts that you—our fans—are listening to this week.
At the top of the charts this week is “Commencement: Speeches for the Class of 2020.” This brand new podcast was created for this year’s high school and college students who, due to COVID-19, were left without a graduation ceremony. To help these 2020 graduates celebrate, iHeartMedia tapped some of the most inspiring philanthropists, business leaders, artists and musicians around for commencement speeches. This podcast includes words of wisdom from the likes of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon, Bill and Melinda Gates, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle, Apple CEO Tim Cook, comedian Chelsea Handler, restaurateur David Chang, superstar athletes like Abby Wambach and Eli Manning and musicians like John Legend, Mary J. Blige, Tim McGraw, Khalid and Halsey. Head over to iHeartRadio now to check out all of the inspiring speeches—and congratulations to the class of 2020!
And at number two on the charts we have “The Joe Rogan Experience.” This week Joe sat down with Dr. Rhonda Patrick, an American biochemist who has done extensive research on aging, cancer, and nutrition. He also chatted with writer and comedian Bridget Phetasy. She came into the studio to talk with Joe about her new YouTube show, “Dumpster Fire” and her podcast, “Walk-Ins Welcome” which is now available on Apple Podcasts and Stitcher. Check out these new episodes now on iHeartRadio!
Third on the charts this week is “Stuff You Should Know,” the show that dives into everyday things we might not think about or don’t actually know a lot about! The podcast recently answered questions like “What is the chemistry of fire?” and “How does peanut butter get made?” The show also recently investigated herd immunity, an epidemiological concept that if enough people are inoculated against a disease, the rest of us won’t get it. It’s been useful in containing diseases like polio and measles—and some scientists hope it could help slow the spread of COVID-19. Learn more about how caving is still being practiced today in a new episode titled, “How Herd Immunity Works.” Check out these episodes and more on iHeartRadio!
And last but not least, at number four on the charts is “Disgraceland.” Hosted by Jake Brennan, this podcast is a perfect mix of music, true crime and history. In its most recent episode, Brennan explored the life and tragic death of rapper Nipsey Hussle. Hussle was more than a musician: He was a social activist, a community leader and aspirational entrepreneur. His 2019 murder was senseless and set off grief stricken testimonials from some of the biggest names in hip-hop—as well as a riot in the streets of Los Angeles. Check out this brand new episode, titled “Nipsey Hussle: A Crenshaw Murder, Community Activism, Rollin ‘60s and Lost Potential,” today on iHeartRadio!
