BE ANTIRACIST WITH IHEARTMEDIA AND PUSHKIN INDUSTRIES

iHeartMedia has partnered with Malcolm Gladwell's Pushkin Industries to launch the new iHeartRadio original podcast Be Antiracist With Ibram X. Kendi.

Premiering on 6/9, the interview series builds on historian and Boston University Center for Antiracist Research Founding Director Kendi’s body of antiracist work, challenging listeners to consider what an antiracist society might look like and how individuals and communities can play an active role in creating it.

Kendi will be joined during the 10-episode series by guests from the worlds of politics, academia, journalism and beyond to discuss the antiracist policies, platforms and narratives people should rally around to build a more just and equitable world.

“After a year that laid bare the pervasive racial inequity that continues to plague our nation, we must continue the difficult but necessary conversations that will allow us to imagine and erect a truly antiracist society,” said Kendi. “I look forward to exploring these topics with guests whose work I deeply admire and digging deep with them and with listeners.”

“The show speaks to many of the deeply rooted issues the past year has brought to light and enables listeners to benefit from the perspectives of some truly unparalleled guests,” added Will Pearson, COO of the iHeartPodcast Network.

"Over the past few years, Ibram X. Kendi has emerged as America's most influential thinker on race, racism and antiracism,” said Pushkin Industries CEO Jacob Weisberg. “We hope the show will empower listeners to effect change in their own communities and beyond."  

Be Antiracist With Ibram X. Kendi marks the first co-production between Pushkin Industries and iHeartMedia; it is part of a two-year production and distribution partnership announced last November. The show will be distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network to all podcast platforms.
