Description

Our lives can be crazy, but you can take a break from it all with Wondery’s new series, Even the Rich, where co-hosts Brooke Siffrinn and Aricia Skidmore-Williams pull back the curtain and chat about someone else’s craziness for a change. They tell stories about some of the greatest family dynasties in history, from the Murdochs to the Royals to the Carters (Jay-Z and Beyoncé, that is). Because as Queen Elizabeth once said, “A good gossip is a wonderful tonic.”

What’s black and white and read all over the world? In this new four-part series, we look at the in-fighting, back-stabbing, and the many marriages of Rupert Murdoch and his children. The fight in the Murdoch clan to take over the media tycoon’s empire is so juicy that it inspired HBO’s hit series “Succession.” Well, we have a secret: the real-life story is even juicier. The true heir will control a multi-billion dollar conglomerate with the power to elect presidents. In this episode, young Rupert Murdoch transforms a single newspaper into a global media empire. He hopes one of his kids will take over someday. There’s only one problem: Rupert can’t decide which kid.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Rothy's — Check out the amazing selection of shoes and bags at rothys.com/richMejuri — Go to mejuri.com/rich for 10% off your first orderDaily Harvest — Visit dailyharvest.com and use promo code RICH for $25 off your box
Rupert becomes the hopeless cliche of a much older rich man caught up in a whirlwind romance with a younger woman who works for him. He sees a chance at happiness, but his kids see something else entirely — a threat to their inheritance.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Mejuri — For 10% off your first order go to mejuri.com/rich
The phone-hacking scandal doesn’t just threaten to bring down Rupert Murdoch’s empire: it might also tear apart his family. Siblings blame siblings. Rupert plays favorites. And Wendi seeks shelter from the storm ... in the arms of another man.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Daily Harvest — Use the promo code RICH at dailyharvest.com for $20 off your first boxBombas — Go to Bombas.com/rich for 20% off your first purchase
All good things must come to an end, right? Try telling that to Rupert Murdoch. In his eighties, the billionaire tycoon shows no sign of slowing down. But let’s face it: the guy must be exhausted. His company is mired in scandal — again — and he’s facing tougher competition than ever before. Don’t even get us started on his sons, Lachlan and James, who are so pissed at each other they’re about ready to rip off their shirts and fight it out. Something’s gotta give or else Rupert’s empire, the one he spent his whole life building, might just crumble. Be sure to check out “Planet Fox,” the incredible three-part story about the Murdochs that ran in the New York Times Magazine: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/04/03/magazine/rupert-murdoch-fox-news-trump.htmlSupport us by supporting our sponsors!Rothy's — Check out rothys.com/rich
We thought we knew everything about the Murdochs. Then we met Ken Auletta. He's one of the best media reporters in the biz — four decades at The New Yorker, a handful of bestsellers under his belt, and quite a few encounters with the Murdochs along the way. He tells us what the family is like up close, and what the future holds for their diminished empire.Want to read some of Ken’s work?

James Poniewozik, watches TV all day and gets paid for it. Dream job, right? James is the chief TV critic at the New York Times. He’s also the author of “Audience of One: Trump, Television, and the Fracturing of America.” On this episode, he explains how Rupert Murdoch brought a tabloid sensibility to cable news. Then we talk “Succession.” The Murdoch family feud inspired the HBO drama, but James says the show also takes a page from Greek mythology.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Bombas — Get 20% off your first purchase at bombas.com/rich
Beyoncé and Jay-Z. They’re not just the first family of hip-hop: they also remind us that magical, luminous, what-I-would-give-to-have-that love really does exist. That’s why this season we’re telling you the story of how two of the biggest stars on the planet came together, launched a billion-dollar music empire, and almost lost it all. In this episode, sparks fly when a pop sensation from Houston and a gifted rapper from Brooklyn meet poolside in Cancun.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Daily Harvest — Go to dailyharvest.com and use promo code RICH for $25 of your first box.
When Jay-Z and Beyoncé finally get together, it’s not just one of the great love stories of all time: it’s also one of the greatest mergers in American history. So when a sketchy publicist starts spreading rumors with the power to break them up, all hell breaks loose.
Beyonce’s stardom reaches new heights with the release of “Single Ladies.” She’s soaring toward the stratosphere when a nasty rumor pulls her back to earth: someone in her inner circle is stealing from her. What she finds out when she investigates threatens everything she’s spent her whole life building. And in the end, she’ll turn to Jay to help her find a way forward.
Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Solange walk into an elevator. After that? Well, you've seen the video. The black-and-white footage inspires the tabloids to fire off an endless stream of colorful rumors. And the thing is, some of those rumors might be true. The Carters' marriage is on shaky ground. So they turn to music. It brought them together in the first place. Maybe now it can save their relationship.
Still dying to know more about Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s evolution from music sensations to business moguls? Then you need a little Zack O’Malley Greenburg in your life. Zack is a senior editor at Forbes, where he writes about business and culture. He’s also the author of the fantastic book “Empire State of Mind: How Jay Z Went from Street Corner to Corner Office.” And on this episode, he talks to us about a few of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s brilliant business moves that we weren’t able to cover on the series. Plus, he tells us how they found their voices on social justice issues.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Daily Harvest — Go to dailyharvest.com and use promo code RICH for $25 off

As an Australian, I can state with 99% certainty that a Jackaroo does not ride around on kangaroos! A Jackaroo or a Jillaroo is a male or female who is novice in the art of a working on a cattle station or sheep station, but gaining experience. They ride horses or motorised machinery. Kangaroos are not to be messed with - the box good 😊

I loved this podcast and binged it all in one day. A very entertaining and neutral point of view on The Firm. Highly recommend for Royal watchers but perhaps not the die hards ☺️

**VERDY GOOOD Paudcast** (my besst brittishh akccentt, you have to listen to get it 🤷‍♀️) Never really cared either way when it came to megxit but they helped explain it. But LOVED the insight on the People's Princess...Diana. Who didn't cry when she passed?? It still breaks my heart. If your into this type of thing DEFINITELY worth the binge.
