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.”

Hosted by Ash Kelley and Alaina Urquhart from the hit show Morbid.When 90-year-old Laurence Pilgeram drops dead on the sidewalk outside his condo, you might think that’s the end of his story. But, really, it’s just the beginning. Because Laurence and others like him have signed up to be frozen and brought back to life in the future. And that belief will pull multiple generations of the Pilgeram family into a cryonics soap opera filled with dead pets, gold coins, grenades, fist fights, mysterious packages, family feuds, Hall of Fame baseball legends, and frozen heads — lots of frozen heads. From Wondery, comes a story about life, death, and what comes next.Listen to Frozen Head: Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at

The Murdochs - Rupert | 1

The Murdochs - Rupert | 1


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!See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
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!See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
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!See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
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: us by supporting our sponsors!See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
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!See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
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!See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
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.See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
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.See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
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.See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at

Angelina is not a victim. She's been a hot mess most of her life and no wilted flower. Her bad and cruel choices are a reflection of her lack of empathy. She's tried to ruin Pitt with her revenge lawsuits and actions, yet she's not winning awards for portraying herself as a victim. I'm not buying it, yet sadly, this podcast is. No bueno

Solid episode but you are missing one important fact known to every Long Beacher—Snoop and Cameron Diaz were classmates and he was her weed supplier. #worldscollide

I'm confused, what's wrong with "staged photos "? Dad doesn't seem to have done anything wrong, just living his life. Now the sister? that's another story.

bold move to cover someone that may or may not have killed her husband..

I'm just gonna throw it out there that MuchMusic isn't a show. It was the Canadian equivalent to MTV.

This podcast got so much wrong. That's what happens when you rely on outsiders acting as if they know what's going on.

Thank you for presenting the story with context that helped me see it as more than a punchline.

Lucille Ball always had roses sent to Carol Burnett on her birthday. The day that Lucille Ball passed away, Carol Burnett's doorbell rang, with the Florist delivering the roses. Lucille Ball passed on Carol Burnett's birthday.

It's such bullshit to fire someone for failing a drug test if their performance is not adversely affected... Shouldn't actual work performance count more than a piss stick? What people do outside of work is none of their employer's business... as long as it doesn't affect their work.

Wow, that’s really rude. They’re a nice family and that is a good show. Also, there are kids involved. Grow up.

please stop saying 'Eastern Tennessee'. we refer to it as 'East Tennessee'. But all and all, I love your podcast. Even the Rich has gotten me through many hours of work. Y'all are the best. I've learned so much through your show.

I grew up in Knoxville. Cas Walker was a huge name in those parts. Listening to you describe Henley St Bridge and WIVK makes me homesick. Thank you for making your podcast.

I don't know if you girls read the reviews but I will pitch in an idea for future episodes.this might not be your ideal topic , but as a family and personality I think Carol Shelby was quite interesting.the way he became famous was very much with modifying cars but the human side is also quite interesting. maybe you can look into it

your show is pretty interesting and it's nice that it's very different people so there is a lot of variety. good work girls

so we're just going to skip over the part where she fraudulently used the credit card of one of her clients to the tune of $120,000? 🤔😂
