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 number one on the charts this week is “Missing in Alaska.” Hosted by journalist Jon Walczak, this podcast explores the unsolved disappearance of congressmen Thomas Hale Boggs, Sr. and Nick Begich. In 1972, the pair boarded a plane traveling from Anchorage to Juneau—and were never seen again. Investigators initially assumed the plane crashed after flying into violent weather, so they searched for wreckage but never found any. Start listening to this enthralling new show today on iHeartRadio!
The second most popular podcast this week was “1619.” Hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones, this audio series travels back in time to when slavery first began: In August of 1619, a ship carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans arrived in the English colony of Virginia. At the time, America was not yet America—but this was the moment it all began.
In this podcast, Hannah-Jones explores the economic and political beginnings of slavery, what factors encouraged its growth and how the oppression of Black people continued even after they were granted freedom. Educate yourself on our country’s history of racial oppression with “1619” today on iHeartRadio.
Sitting at number three is “Questlove Supreme.” June is Black Music Month and this popular interview-style podcast wants to help listeners celebrate. Hosted by Grammy Award-winning musician Questlove, this show is highlighting Black artists who have influenced much of the music we know and love today. For example, Questlove recently chatted with the co-founders of Black Music Month, Dyana Williams and Kenny Gamble. Another recent episode, titled “QLS Classic: Patrice Rushen,” was all about the composer, producer and music director Patrice Rushen. She joined Questlove and Team Supreme to discuss her life as one of the music industry’s most versatile artists. Check out this new episode and more from “Questlove Supreme” on iHeartRadio today!
“Crime Junkie” sat at number four on the charts this week. Hosted by Ashley Flowers, this weekly podcast gives listeners their true crime fix. Flowers delivers whatever crime she’s been obsessing over that week in a way that sounds like you’re sitting around and chatting with your best friends. Check out the show’s newest episode, titled “MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF: Tamla Horsford // Joseph Smedley.” Both of these people died under very mysterious circumstances—and although their cases aren’t connected, they were both quickly ruled an accident or suicide.
