iHeartRadio Top 100 Podcast Chart Mondays: Discover Your Next Binge-Worthy Podcast!

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. In the show’s newest episode, titled “Don’t Knock Arizona,” Walczak traveled across the desert, chasing new clues. Start listening to this enthralling new show today on iHeartRadio!

Crime Junkie” is at number two 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: Rey Rivera.” In 2006, Rey Rivera was found dead at Baltimore’s Belvedere Hotel. To this day, investigators aren’t sure about the cause of his death—was it suicide or is there something more sinister at play?  Learn more about this story and other unsolved crimes from “Crime Junkie” today!

At number three on the charts we have “Fake Doctors, Real Friends with Zach + Donald.” Hosted by co-stars and real-life best friends Zach Braff and Donald Faison, this re-watch podcast dives back into Scrubs, a beloved medical comedy-drama. Every Tuesday, Braff and Faison rewatch episodes, reminisce about their time on the show and even provide some behind-the-scenes stories.  In their most recent episode, titled “Our Difficult Past: Blackface on Scrubs,” the hosts were joined by Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence and fellow castmate Sarah Chalke to discuss the shows' difficult history with Blackface. Check out this week’s episode and more on iHeartRadio.

And last but not least, 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 “How do ultrasounds work?” and “Who designed Manhattan's grid system?” The show also recently did a deep dive into the history and physics behind juggling in an episode titled, “SYSK Selects: Juggling: What the Heck.” Learn more about this putatively innocuous pastime today on iHeartRadio!
