iHeartRadio’s Unpopular Podcast Inspires Listeners to Speak Up and Spark Change

Looking for a podcast to shake up your morning commute? “Unpopular,” a new iHeartRadio original podcast about the rebels and revolutionaries who created lasting social change, will have you ready to take on the day and challenge the world as you know it.

Each week, host Yves Jeffcoat reaches into the past to tell the story of someone who challenged the status quo, connecting the dots between their history and the history we’re making today. She’ll explore the protesters that inspired progress and the radical ideas that shattered traditional power structures. From Italian astronomer, physicist and engineer Galileo to Nigerian teacher, political campaigner and women's rights activist Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, “Unpopular” will look at the opposition these crusaders faced for speaking out.

Jeffcoat reminds us that in order to move forward, we need to think forward, no matter the cost. The ideas and actions of the historical figures she highlights were despised by most in their societies, despite the hard facts supporting their claims. They were targeted by hate and denounced by their homelands. They often paid high prices for speaking up, but their resistance brought change that lasted way beyond the end of their lives.

Through this podcast, Jeffcoat helps us all stay open to new ideas, and more importantly, call for meaningful change even when it feels like the world is against you. When a cause is noble, it often pays to be unpopular.
