Following their stellar results in 2022 and cementing themselves as one of Australia’s top podcasts, ARN’s iHeart is pleased to announce The Imperfects has extended their 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, comedian Ryan Shelton and produced by Bridget Northeast, is all about how perfectly imperfect we all are.
The trio regularly chat with high-profile individuals who share their own struggles, helping to highlight that no matter how successful you are, everyone has their own imperfections.
The strength of the show and its highly engaged audience is proven by the scale of guests that have joined to share their own imperfections in the last few weeks, including internationally renowned psychotherapist Esther Perel and all-around 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.
On extending with iHeart, Co-host Hugh van Cuylenburg said, “We’re so grateful to have such a strong relationship with an organisation that lets us be our authentic selves.”
Co-host Ryan Shelton added, “No matter how imperfect we prove to be, iHeart continues to support us, and we couldn’t be more thankful.”
Co-host Josh van Cuylenburg also added, “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.”
