Wiser Than Me with Julia Louis-Dreyfus by Lemonada

Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns for Season 2 of her award-winning podcast, Wiser Than Me.

Julia sits at the feet of some extraordinary teachers this season, and of course her 90-year-old mom, Judy. I keep coming back to this podcast series – recent episodes with Sally Field and Beverly Johnson were brilliant.
