What do vaccines, stigma, climate change and sex have in common? They all relate to our public health.    Covid-19 isn’t the only public health crisis we’ve faced. It’s not even the only one we face right now. What led us to this moment, what have we learned, what did we get right (and wrong), and how can we do better?   As we navigate a pandemic, and a moment that’s rife with conspiracy theories and misinformation, Chelsea is getting the facts.    Each week on In Fact, Chelsea Clinton sits down with experts, activists and a few surprising guests who share Chelsea’s passion for science, evidence and yes, facts. Along the way, they’ll open the world of public health through shared stories, their work, connect the dots between the past and present moment, and help us understand that, now more than ever, public health affects us all.

When Healthcare Gets Politicized (with Amber Tamblyn, Alexis McGill Johnson & Dr. Colleen McNicholas)

Environmental Justice (with Sec. Deb Haaland, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha & Juan Parras)
For years, Black Americans, Latinx communities, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans have been disproportionately impacted by environmental hazards. This is not an accident or coincidence. It’s the result of policy choices, corporate practices, and deliberate actions.    That’s why this week, Chelsea is sitting down with three people who share a deep commitment to environmental justice: Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, who was one of the first people to speak out and bring public attention to the Flint Water Crisis; Juan Parras, founder of T.E.J.A.S., an organization standing up to the powerful oil industry in his hometown of Houston, Texas; and Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland, the first Native American to serve as a Cabinet secretary, who is responsible for our public lands.

Substance Use Disorders and Addiction (with Dax Shepard and Mayor Muriel Bowser)
When we think about a public health crisis, we often think about a contagious disease – like COVID-19. But right now substance use disorders and addiction are an epidemic in our country. That’s why this week, Chelsea is sitting down with two people with unique perspectives on this issue: Mayor Muriel Bowser is addressing challenges around substance use disorders and addiction in D.C., while managing the many other crises of this last year. And Dax Shepard, whose candor about his own addiction and recovery makes him a role model for so many and tackles the issue of stigma head on. Learn more about your ad-choices at

Climate Change and Public Health (with Jane Fonda & Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms)
We know climate change is a real threat to our planet, but we hear a lot less about the threat it poses to public health. That’s why this week, Chelsea is sitting down with two people who have tackled this head on: Jane Fonda, who has used her powerful platform to engage people across generations in this fight, and Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms who has made addressing climate change in Atlanta a top priority, quickly becoming a model for other cities in how to address this crisis.  Learn more about your ad-choices at

HIV/AIDS and Stigma (with Peter Staley, Jonathan Van Ness & Dr. Oni Blackstock)
When HIV was first identified in the early 1980s, it was a public health crisis mired in urgent scientific questions: How was it transmitted? What were the symptoms? Could it be treated? But alongside that, and equally challenging to public health, was the stigma attached to the virus. Homophobia, racism, and shame around sex combined with a woefully inadequate response from our government made the epidemic even more deadly. Today, we know how to treat HIV/AIDS and help prevent transmission. Still, thousands of Americans contract HIV every year, millions of people around the world do not receive treatment, and stigma remains dangerous, even deadly.   In this debut episode, you’ll hear from activist Peter Staley about his experience as a member of the group ACT UP back in the 1980s, and his work today to fight stigma, and help people get the education and care they deserve. Then Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness shares his journey through fear and stigma after being diagnosed as HIV-positive to becoming a fierce advocate and inspiration for other. And finally, Dr. Oni Blackstock, an HIV physician and advocate working in New York City, shares her experience treating patients on the front-lines amid a pandemic and the ongoing fight for equity in healthcare access and quality for all.   Learn more about your ad-choices at

Introducing: In Fact with Chelsea Clinton
The COVID-19 pandemic hasn't just upended our sense of "normal" -- it has laid bare so much about our health care, infrastructure, politics, and culture, and the deep inequities built into all of these. But, as people working in public health -- and those living these issues every day -- know all too well, none of this is new.     In Chelsea Clinton's new podcast she sits down with everyone from Jane Fonda to Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser to Jonathan Van Ness, and more to talk about how public health affects their lives and ours.   Learn more about your ad-choices at
