WHAT: What if we could help change the world one relationship at a time? iHeartRadio, the No. 1 podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac, and Salesforce.org are joining together to explore the power of connection and technology in season two of “Force Multiplier,” a podcast that addresses the exponential impact we can have on the world by working together. Whether we’re talking about health inequity, nutrition insecurity or the opportunity gap in education, we are facing unprecedented challenges that require unprecedented collaboration across disciplines, cultures and sectors. 

Join host Baratunde Thurston as he sits with leaders from across the public, private, education and nonprofit world who are forging partnerships to tackle some of the toughest challenges facing us today. To make it more hyper-focused on important issues, the six-episode season will be split into three themes, each getting two episodes to explore the topic. 

The first two episodes will focus on “Climate Action” and feature captivating and informative roundtable discussions and interviews with leading activists in the space. As with all the themes, “Force Multiplier” will examine these issues at every level. Along with leading organizations, the episodes will also feature stories from local community members who are taking personal actions to address these global and cultural issues. 

Later in the season, the show will cover “Education Access” and “Global Health” as the highlighted themes.

WHO: Host Baratunde Thurston, a writer, comedian and political commentator and host of  “How to Citizen” podcast, will talk with a variety of leaders, activists, forward-thinkers and organizations who are doing the work to combat the most pertinent issues we’re facing. The first episode will see Thurston tackle climate change with Australian environmental leader Amanda McKenzie, founder and CEO of The Climate Council, and Derrick Emsley, CEO of Tentree, a company that plants 10 trees for every purchase of their sustainably-made clothing and outdoor essentials. 

WHEN: The season two first episode launches on Thursday, May 12, with new episodes released every two weeks. 

WHERE: Listen to “Force Multiplier” on iHeartRadio and all other platforms. “Force Multiplier” is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network.
