Even the Rich

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.”

You might know Carla Hall from her time on Top Chef and as a TV personality on GMA and Netflix’s Crazy Delicious. But, the biggest moments in Carla’s life have come when she decided to face adversity head on. Her motto is ”say yes” to everything life throws your way. In her new Wondery podcast, ‘Say Yes with Carla Hall,’ Carla sits down with some of the most inspiring celebrity personalities and they explore their challenges and how they got to their yes. In the very first episode, Carla welcomes Kristen Bell. One of coolest things about Kristen is that she’s not afraid to share her messy side. She and Carla talk about why every marriage needs a good “housecleaning,” Kristen's growth mindset, and how she is handling her kids’ distance schooling. And with more great guests to come like, Billy Porter, Martha Stewart, Gretchen Rubin, and Loni Love, "Say Yes" will motivate you to get to your yes in life, too. Listen at wondery.fm/sayyes_etr.
