From the moment Rachel Manson first saw Fran Lebowitz in The Wolf of Wall Street, she… didn’t know who Lebowitz was. But after that—and after multiple personal crises during the pandemic, during which she watched Pretend It’s a City and started reading her books—she became a superfan.

On this episode of A Few of My Favourite Jews, a podcast featuring in-depth conversations about some of the greatest Jews in history, Manson joins host and comedian Laura Leibow to chat about Lebowitz’s cultural impact, trailblazing feminism and trademark candour.
