Couples, siblings, BFFs, business partners – Rachel Zoe and her husband of 23 years, Rodger Berman, explore what makes every kind of relationship work on their first-ever podcast. Guests include Jessica Alba & Cash Warren, Tommy Hilfiger & Dee Ocleppo, Nate Berkus & Jeremiah Brent, The Home Edit’s Clea Shearer & Joanna Teplin, and more.
Los Angeles, CA (April 20, 2021) – Rachel Zoe is known worldwide as a fashion authority and style icon. Now, on her new Cloud10 Media x iHeartRadio podcast, “Works For Us,” she gives listeners a look inside her own relationships. Co-hosted by her husband of 23 years, Rodger Berman, “Works for Us” examines what does (and does not!) make all kinds of relationships work. The podcast lets listeners in on intimate conversations with star duos, including many of Zoe/Berman’s celebrity couple friends, and highlights the raw, honest, and relatable issues that affect their relationships. “Works for Us” will debut today with new episodes airing every Tuesday. Listen to the first episode now on iHeartRadio and everywhere else podcasts are heard.
While her fashionista followers might be surprised that a Rachel Zoe podcast would focus on relationships rather than style, according to Zoe, relationships have always been a key part of her job.
“I wanted to do a podcast centered around relationships because, over the years, people have honestly spent more time talking to me about their relationships – in every sense of the term – than they have talked to me about fashion and style,” said Zoe.
It’s also a natural choice given that Zoe’s success is not limited to her career. She and Rodger Berman have been together for almost thirty years and share two children. Not only has their relationship thrived throughout the challenges of marriage and parenting, but they’ve made it work exceedingly well as business partners: together, they serve as co-CEOs of CURATEUR and Rachel Zoe Inc., where Berman lends the business and financial expertise that has helped Zoe’s brand succeed.
“I always say, behind many successful women there is a really, really good man rooting for them,” said Zoe. “Rodger has always, always, always rooted for me.”
The love and mutual respect they have for each other is evident in every episode of the show.
“Rachel and Rodger have such incredible chemistry, and it’s fun to see that in action on Works For Us,” said Cloud10 Media CEO/executive producer Sim Sarna. “They get so excited about their guests’ stories that they often complete each other’s interview questions.”
While listeners can expect a weekly glimpse into Zoe and Berman’s marriage, and the relationships of their famously coupled friends, the focus of “Works for Us” is not limited to romantic pairings alone. Zoe and Berman will also be chatting with best friends, business partners, siblings, mother/daughter duos and more. As Berman puts it, “We have a pretty low bar about what we will accept as a relationship, so provided you know the other person, we're pretty much happy to talk to you.”
“Works For Us” is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network and is executive produced by Rachel Zoe, Rodger Berman and Sim Sarna for Cloud10 Media and iHeartMedia. The show will be available on iHeartRadio as well as all other major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and more.
