The Imperfects podcast extends its commitment to iHeart


Following stellar results in 2022 and cementing itself as one of Australia’s top podcasts, ARN’s iHeart has announced The Imperfects has extended its commitment with the network for a further two years.

The popular mental health podcast, hosted by The Resilience Project’s Hugh van Cuylenburg, his brother Josh van Cuylenburg and comedian Ryan Shelton and produced by Bridget Northeast, is all about how perfectly imperfect we all are.

The trio regularly chats with high-profile individuals who share their own struggles, helping to highlight that no matter how successful you are, everyone has their own imperfections.

Guests who’ve joined the show to share their own imperfections in the last few weeks include internationally renowned psychotherapist Esther Perel and all-round Aussie legend Nedd Brockmann.

The Imperfects has been in the Top 10 Australian podcasts since July 2022, placing at #7 in the November rankings with 374,865 listeners and 760,668 downloads.  In 2023, The Imperfects will be taking the show on the road for the first time – tickets for their live show are available here.

On extending with iHeart, Hugh van Cuylenburg says “We’re so grateful to have such a strong relationship with an organisation who lets us be our authentic selves.”

Ryan Shelton says “No matter how imperfect we prove to be, iHeart continues to support us, and we couldn’t be more thankful.”

Josh van Cuylenburg says “It’s just incredible to have such support from the team at iHeart – allowing us to connect with a fantastic audience through vulnerable and authentic stories.”

ARN’s Head of Digital Audio Corey Layton added to the positive sentiments: “The Imperfects unique approach has helped countless Australians through the last few years, demonstrating the power of podcasts – striking the balance of entertainment and education. Working with the team since 2020 has been both personally and professionally fulfilling and we’re thrilled to be extending our partnership even further”.

The Imperfects is available to listen via the free iHeart app or wherever you get your podcasts.
