If you’re looking for a weekly dose of female wisdom, you’ve come to the right place. Julia Louis-Dreyfus (you know, our favorite leading lady from Veep) recently released a lifestyle podcast, titled Wiser Than Me, and it deserves a spot on your queue.

The actress, 62, launched the podcast so listeners can learn from “older and wiser women” (her words, not ours) through candid conversations. Louis-Dreyfus has enlisted a guest for each episode to share their insights about life, work and society in a lighthearted way.

“Hi, it’s me Julia Louis-Dreyfus and guess what? I’ve got a new podcast,” she said in the Instagram trailer. “Each week, I’m going to get schooled by women who are older and much wiser than me.”

Dreyfus launched Wiser Than Me back in March 2023. So far, Dreyfus has released four episodes featuring guests like actress Jane Fonda, author Isabel Allende, writer Fran Lebowitz and food writer Ruth Reichl. Future installments will highlight other familiar faces voices, including Carol Burnett, Amy Tan and Diane von Furstenberg.

Shortly after its debut, Wiser Than Me became the number one show on Apple Podcasts (NBD). The production company, Lemonada Media, celebrated the exciting news on Instagram, where they posted a caption that read: “Wiser Than Me with @officialjld is #1 on @applepodcasts! Thank you to everyone who has listened, shared, and commented! We are lucky to have you all in the Lemonada family.”

Let’s wise up, baby!
