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!
Number two on the charts this week is “Stuff You Missed in History Class.” This podcast does just what its title implies: It delivers the learnings that, while growing up, you might have missed or weren’t taught in your history classes. This week, the podcast delivered some learnings on American history in an episode called, “The Bureau of Home Economics.” For a time, the U.S. Department had an entire section of a department dedicated to home economics. It was run by and for women and was a huge part of the response to crises like the Great Depression and World War II. Check out this episode and more on iHeartRadio!
“The Breakfast Club” took the number three slot on the podcast charts this week. Hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Tee and Charlamagne Tha God, this morning show brings listeners some of the most popular voices and figures around. The morning show recently played its interview with DaBaby and Master P in an episode called, “Best of BFC Featuring Interviews from DaBaby & Master P and Romeo.” In another recent episode, “You Ain’t Black (Joe Biden Interview and more),” Charlamagne interviewed former Vice President Joe Biden and spoke to him about his plans for turning around the economy, the 1994 crime bill and so much more. Head over to iHeartRadio to listen to these brand new episodes.
And at number four sits “Disgraceland.” Hosted by Jake Brennan, this podcast is a perfect mix of music, true crime and history. In its most recent episode, Brennan shares stories about the infamous venue, Studio 54. In the late seventies, it was the place to be for musicians and celebrities alike: John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and many others regularly hung out there. The club was known for its hedonism—in fact, that was part of its allure. The success of Studio 54 was sudden and massive, resulting in mountains of cash, cocaine, jealousy, revenge, an FBI raid and an ironic ending for one of its owners. Check out this brand new episode, titled “Studio 54: Disco Decadence, a Dead Body and Bags of Cash,” today on iHeartRadio!
