Apple honored Wiser Than Me with Julia Louis-Dreyfus with the Apple Podcasts Award, given each year to honor a show that demonstrates quality and innovation in podcasting.

In the series, the actress and comedian interviews older women about their lives.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus gets wiser with older women

Apple says, “The show’s popularity and accolades are a testament to its refreshingly authentic approach to amplifying the voices of older, wiser women — a demographic not often centered in mainstream culture — and encouraging intergenerational listening.”

And Wiser Than Me is popular. It appeared on the lists of Top New Shows, Most Followed Shows and Most Shared Shows on Apple Podcast’s 2023 lineup of most popular audio series.

The podcast is produced by Lemonada, and the official description reads:

“Julia Louis-Dreyfus wants to know why the hell we don’t hear more from older women, so she’s sitting down with Jane Fonda, Carol Burnett, Amy Tan, Diane von Furstenberg, Isabel Allende and Fran Lebowitz (and more!) to get schooled in how to live a full and meaningful life. Join the Emmy award winning-est actress of all time on her first-ever podcast where each week she has funny, touching, personal conversations with unforgettable women who are always WISER THAN MET™.”

And there’s more on the way: Lemonada recently announced a second season set to premiere in spring 2024.

For those who missed the first season, Wiser Than Me with Julia Louis-Dreyfus is available on Apple Podcasts. It’s free to stream.
