iHeartMedia and drummer/DJ/producer/author Questlove have announced a partnership that will bring new seasons of his “Questlove Supreme” podcast to the iHeartPodcast Network. In addition, the drummer and Tonight Show musical director will hand-curate and produce a new slate of iHeartRadio original content, which will go beyond just music, early next year. New episodes of “Questlove Supreme” will be available weekly beginning November 6 on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are heard. “Questlove Supreme”‘s first two seasons aired on Pandora.
“Questlove Supreme” is hosted by Questlove and five of his closest friends, and also features a new, well-known guest on every episode. Each episode is driven by conversation ranging from the guest’s origins to their life passions and current projects. Previous guests have included Usher, Michelle Obama, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Chaka Khan and many more.
“We’ve attracted an incredibly passionate and enthusiastic fan base so far with “Questlove Supreme”, and partnering with iHeartMedia, the leader in the audio space, will now allow us to bring these conversations to a much larger audience and take it to the next level,” said Questlove. “I’m also excited to have the opportunity to launch even more thought-provoking content within the iHeartRadio ecosystem and beyond.”
“Questlove is a treasure trove of musical and historical knowledge, with one of the smartest perspectives on culture today, and we are thrilled to partner with him to bring his podcast and a new slate of original content to the iHeartPodcast Network,” said Conal Byrne, President of the iHeartPodcast Network. “It’s always amazing to work with your heroes – and, for us, that’s Questlove. His passion is a great complement to our music podcasts, and with our unmatched reach across multiple platforms, we can’t wait to share “Questlove Supreme” with more listeners than ever before.”
In addition to being available on iHeartRadio and all digital podcast platforms, excerpts of the podcast will also be distributed across iHeartMedia broadcast radio stations.
