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.

And at number one on the charts this week we have “Stuff You Should Know.” Hosted by Josh Clark and Charles “Chuck” Bryant, this podcast dives into everyday things we might not think about or don’t actually know a lot about! This week, they answered questions like “what is heroin?” and “what led to the Tiananmen Square massacre?” The show also did a deep dive into the Black Panther Party, a complex political movement that was unfairly painted as a militant group who hated white people. In reality, the Black Panthers were very unlike this description: They were just men and women trying to affect change in their community. Their history is one of the more interesting American stories, and they were one of the first groups to begin policing the police. Learn all about the Black Panther Party in this new episode, titled “SYSK Selects: How the Black Panther Party Worked” today on iHeartRadio!

The Breakfast Club” took the number two slot on the podcast charts this week.

And at number four sits “The Herd with Colin Cowherd.” Hosted by American sports media personality Colin Cowherd, this show takes a thoughtful, opinionated and topic-driven approach to the top sports stories of the day. In one of the show’s more recent episodes, titled “NBA playoffs, Jimmy Garoppolo, Kevin Durant,” American basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb sat in for Cowherd and explained why the NBA’s return is a poor plan, why he doesn’t think Jimmy Garoppolo will be an all-time great and why Kevin Durant should return for the playoffs.
