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

    When Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiano fell in love, they were able to give each other exactly what they needed. For Patrizia, who was born out of wedlock, that was social standing.

Now that they’ve found each other, they’re ready to take over the world – or, at least, the Gucci empire.Plus CBD- Sleep better tonight at pluscbdoil.com Promo code: RICH for 40% off your order!See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    It's a whole new world! Kim Kardashian and comedian Pete Davidson made it Page Six official. Yep, Kete is ON! The unlikely couple was in Palm Springs yesterday for Pete’s birthday.

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?Rothys- Get $20 off your first purchase at rothys.com/RICH!Pura Vida- Text RICH to 38817 to learn when you can Get up to 50% off your order & FREE SHIPPING!See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Introducing: Operator

    5:44

    During the 1-900 number craze of the Nineties, one company provided the vast majority of phone sex. American Telnet was an empire founded by the man who called himself “The Telephone Pimp.” He ran the company “like General Motors” and got filthy rich doing it. But for the (mostly) women who answered the calls and delivered fantasies 24-7, it was a different story. The powerful stigma against sex work was always lurking just beneath the surface, until it threatened to tear apart the whole company. Hosted by Tina Horn (Why Are People Into That?), OPERATOR is an eight-part series about big ambitions, Shakespearean-level corporate backstabbing, men and women at the cutting edge of a technological revolution...and on the front lines of a sexual one.Listen to Operator at http://wondery.fm/OP_Even_The_RichSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
