Spit is an iHeartRadio podcast with 23andMe where host Baratunde Thurston sits down with the most interesting cultural influencers of our time to explore how DNA testing gives us a new perspective on who we are and how we are all connected. Join us for an intimate conversation and the unscripted thoughts and opinions of award-winning recording artists John Legend, Melissa Etheridge, Wyclef Jean and Pete Wentz as we talk science vs stories, nature vs nurture, family, race and a whole lot more.
iHeartRadio on-air personality and entertainer Bobby Bones takes over hosting duties in this special pop-up episode of Spit. Recorded live from the iHeartRadio Music Festival, we gathered the most peaceful people we know to celebrate Peace Day with us: artist and philanthropist Mike Posner; Peace One Day Founder Jeremy Gilley; and Tim Phillips, Founder of Beyond Conflict, a non-profit organization that works with leaders to address conflict and promote social change. We tackle what it takes to make peace, and how to make peace with yourself - and with others - by ultimately embracing how we are all connected. During this very special recording at the Daytime Stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, we also asked attendees to share their messages of peace with us. Be inspired to spread your own peace.
