iHeartMedia announced In Fact with Chelsea Clinton a new iHeartRadio Original Podcast hosted by former First Daughter, Chelsea Clinton. She joins her parents on the iHeartPodcast Network alongside You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton and Why Am I Telling You This? with Bill Clinton.
In Fact launches April 13, and will look at some of the biggest public health challenges of our time, as Clinton — who holds a doctorate in international relations, a masters in public health, and teaches at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health — will talk with guests who share her passion for science, and evidence.
Notable guests will include actress Jane Fonda, Mayor of Atlanta Keisha Lance Bottoms, Mayor of D.C. Muriel Bowser, and actor Dax Shepard. Clinton will connect the dots between past and present public health crises and highlight stories that demonstrate how public health affects us all and leave no topic unexplored.
The first episode will feature Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness, who has been a vocal advocate for people with HIV/AIDS since publicly sharing his own HIV-positive status in 2019; activist Peter Staley; and Dr. Oni Blackstock, an HIV physician and health equity advocate, to explore the trajectory of HIV/AIDS from the early days of activism through modern day.
“With more attention than ever being paid to public health, we have an opportunity to expand awareness beyond COVID-19 to other real and pervasive issues that impact us all,” said Clinton. “On this podcast, I’m looking forward to bringing conversations with some of the smartest and most interesting people I know to a new audience. From stigma to choice to the environment, my hope is that listeners will walk away from each episode informed, entertained, inspired, and with a better understanding of why public health matters — certainly in this moment and always.”
“Chelsea has devoted her career to advancing important discussions around public health, and we’re honored to partner with her on a podcast that will further that important work,” said Conal Byrne, CEO of the iHeartMedia Digital Audio Group. “Her passion for fostering awareness and understanding around these topics makes her a natural arbiter for these conversations.”
