    Wondery Presents - Even The Rich Elton John: Still Standing

    In the latest season of Wondery’s Even The Rich, hosts Brooke and Aricia tell the story of Elton John. Before he was Reginald Dwight. Reginald hates who he is: a chubby, awkward kid from a fractured English home. So he escapes through music, and reinvents himself as Elton John. The journey take him far away from his neglected childhood and morphs him into a spoiled, coke-addicted rock superstar. But underneath the glitz and glamour, an inescapable sadness persists. No matter how many hit records he makes or lines he snorts, Elton can’t escape himself. His world eventually crashes down in a torrent of addictions, depression, and self-loathing. But when he finally learns to love himself, he grows into the person he was meant to be, enabling thousands of others to do so and becoming an LGBTQ icon.

    Wondery Presents: The Execution of Bonny Lee Bakley

    On May 4, 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was found fatally shot in a car on a dark North Hollywood street. The prime suspect was her husband, famed actor Robert Blake. But Bonny, a longtime con artist, had plenty of enemies. She left behind a trail of men she’d scammed, and she had a volatile relationship with Christian Brando, the troubled son of movie star Marlon Brando. Not since the O.J. Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny’s killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood's underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date. This is the story of Robert and Bonny’s toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else's vendetta? From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong. Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.
