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.”

New episodes come out Tuesdays for free. Binge new full seasons early and ad-free on Wondery+ or on Amazon Music with a Prime membership or Amazon Music Unlimited subscription

Rich and Daily: The Chrisleys Know Jail
00:17:17

Richies, Todd and Julie Chrisley are being forced to face the music. Earlier this year, the “Chrisley Knows Best” couple was convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., and tax fraud. Whew! That’s quite a rap sheet for the married reality stars. And just last week, they were sentenced to a collective 19 years in prison and have to pay up over $17 million in restitution. Even though they could have been slapped with longer prison sentences, Todd and Julie claim they’re receiving harsher treatment because of their TV fame. So are the Chrisleys being made an example of? Or is their sentencing still a slap on the wrist?

Introducing: I Hear Fear
00:05:53

Each episode of I HEAR FEAR plunges the listener into a tale inspired by real events, from a deadly dance party to a cursed film set. Join host and two-time Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan for six immersive stories designed to jangle your nerves and haunt your dreams.

Rich and Daily: Ellen Pompeo Is Scrubbing Out of 'Grey's'
00:16:16

Richies, parting is such sweet sorrow. After 19 seasons and more than 400 episodes, Ellen Pompeo is hanging up her scrubs at “Grey’s Anatomy.” Ellen says it’s time to move on and explore new terrain, but she did promise that she'd come back to visit. Even though this may not be goodbye forever, some die-hard "Grey's" stans aren't happy about the news. Fans flocked to GA's social media to say that without Ellen, they'd be turning off and tuning out! So can the show survive without the Grey in “Grey’s Anatomy"? Or is it DOA?

Rich and Daily: Selena Gomez Gives a 'Rare' Look at Her Life
00:17:28

Selena Gomez is getting real. The superstar singer and actor is opening up about her serious mental and physical illnesses in her new documentary “My Mind & Me,” which just dropped today on Apple+. In the doc, which was filmed over the course of six years, the “Only Murders in the Building” star opens up about her battles with both lupus and bipolar disorder. Selena says even though it was hard for her to share her story, she agreed to do it to help others dealing with the same challenges to feel less alone. It’s always refreshing to us when a celebrity gets vulnerable in an effort to spread awareness, but are stars like Selena obligated to use their platforms this way?

Vulture film critic Angelica Jade Bastién joins Brooke and Aricia to talk about what Marilyn teaches us about how society treats women who battle mental health challenges, and discuss some of her greatest on-screen moments.

Janet vs The Halftime Show | Janet’s Other Legacy with Clover Hope | 3
00:30:30

Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction might never be forgotten, but what about her legacy as a trail-blazing feminist? Janet cut a path for female pop performers controlling their own narrative. She was an advocate for women getting what they need in the bedroom before most people even knew the term “sex positive.” And she did it all while the press critiqued her every move, and her body, too. Culture writer Clover Hope joins Brooke and Aricia to set the record straight. Clover shares what it was like to meet Janet at a Manhattan sushi bar, her love for Poetic Justice, and her take on the aftermath of Janet’s Super Bowl halftime show.

Janet vs The Halftime Show | Control | 1
00:48:01

On February 1st, 2004, Janet Jackson’s right breast was exposed to a live audience of over 144 million at the Super Bowl — for 9/16ths of a second. What should have been a fleeting moment of professional embarrassment became a national scandal. It was a story that had everything: a titillating costume change gone wrong, a powerful black woman who refused to grovel, and a squeaky-clean, young white upstart who was only too happy to align himself with power. Racism, sexism and misogyny collided to turn one of the greatest entertainers in the world into nothing more than a political scapegoat. 

In the first episode of our special two-part series, we'll tell you the story of how one woman found a way to achieve the American dream — then had it all snatched away in an instant.

Kidnapping American Royalty: The Patty Hearst Story | The Psychology of Cults with Alexandra Stein | 4
00:31:30

Patty Hearst would eventually put the SLA in her rearview mirror; she’d go on to have two kids and act in a string of John Waters films. But through the years, the debate has continued: was Patty really brainwashed, or did she voluntarily join the SLA? To help answer this question, Brooke and Aricia are joined by author and social scientist Alexandra Stein. Alexandra studies the psychological tactics cult leaders use to brainwash their subjects. She also has first hand experience with cults, having survived a decade in one. Alexandra will explain why it’s so hard to leave a cult and what can help people break free.


To learn more about her story, check out Alexandra’s memoir: http://www.alexandrastein.com/inside-out-a-memoir-of-entering-and-breaking-out-of-a-minneapolis-political-cult.html

Patty Hearst has just been arrested for the Hibernia Bank robbery, and the prosecution has a very solid case. First, they have photos of Patty robbing the joint. Second, they have tapes of her confessing to the crime. And third, America really, really hates a rich girl breaking bad.

But Patty’s new lawyer, F. Lee Bailey, thinks they can win this. They just need to take a risk and put Patty on the stand. If the jury hears her side, there’s no way they won’t acquit – and if they don’t … well, they’ll figure that out later.

Imagine if Paris Hilton was kidnapped back when she was just a teenager – and that nobody, not even the FBI, could find her. Now imagine that, ten weeks later, she finally reemerges – waving a gun and robbing a bank alongside the people who kidnapped her.

It sounds too far-fetched to be true, but a version of this story really did happen. Back in 1974, left-wing terrorists abducted nineteen-year-old heiress Patty Hearst, the granddaughter of media tycoon William Randolph Hearst. And two months later, Patty publicly joined their cause.

But was Patty a participant or a victim? Was she a teenage girl who did what she had to do to survive, or a rich young woman who loved the thrill of being on the other side?

Murder in the House of Gucci | Humble Beginnings | 1
00:44:07

On March 27, 1995, Maurizio Gucci – the one-time chairman of the House of Gucci – was killed in cold blood. The murder became Italy’s crime of the century. As a story, it had it all: a rags-to-riches family saga, a vengeful ex-wife, and the glitz and glamor of the world of high fashion.


But what it didn’t have... was an ending. For two years, detectives went in circles. To solve the case, they’d have to crack open Maurizio’s life like a book.


In the first episode of our three-part series, we turn back to page one. How did Guccio Gucci, a poor bellhop, make his name synonymous with luxury? How did a family as glamorous as the Guccis produce a child as shy and awkward as Maurizio? And how did Maurizio go from the most overlooked member of the family to its most powerful?

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.

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 it over someday. There’s only one problem: Rupert can’t decide which kid.

Nowadays, the formula for fame is simple. Get a ring light, highlight your cheekbones, count your followers. But back in 2000, Paris Hilton had to figure it all out by herself. Step by step, she wrote the book on how to turn yourself into a brand, without social media, and then had to figure out how to survive the backlash that followed.

Paris Hilton | Do You Know Who I Am? | 1
00:43:48

This season we’re looking back at the rise of America’s first influencer. How did the wild child, hard-partying heiress who was “famous for being famous” end up netting more than $300 million on her own? In this episode, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree—and that tree is Big Kathy, Paris’ grandmother, who ends up pregnant but refuses to give up her dream of being famous. Her mantra? “Marry rich and have lots of babies.” All her efforts pay off with the arrival of her granddaughter Star, better known by the name that made her famous -- Paris Hilton. We’ll dig into the fascinating story of how a woman with stars in her eyes and an iron will helped create the 2000s scene queen people loved to hate, but couldn’t get enough of… for good reason. Paris Hilton is hot.

It seems almost too good to be true. The supernaturally good-looking scion of the Kennedy dynasty meets a smart, ambitious woman and sweeps her off her feet.

In this episode, John tries to step out from behind his father’s shadow and shake off his mother’s influence. Easier said than done.

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.html

The Murdochs - Rupert | 1
00:45:57

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.
