Meghan Markle is getting ready for her first original podcast series.
Archwell Audio – the audio-first production company founded by Markle and Prince Harry as part of their Archwell Foundation – on Thursday revealed more specifics about the Duchess’s upcoming podcast, which will be called “Archaetypes.” The production company announced last week that the podcast would debut sometime this summer.
According to Archwell Audio, “Architapes” will “examine labels that try to hold women back” and Marley will “speak with historians and experts to uncover the origins of these stereotypes and treat those women as uncensored.” who know very well how these typecasts shape the narrative.”
“We talk about women like this: the words that raise our girls, and how the media shows women back to us,” Markle said in an audio teaser released Thursday. “But, where do these stereotypes come from? And how do they continue to show and define our lives?”
“Archaetypes” is the first podcast series to come from Prince Harry and Markle and their multi-year deal with Spotify, which they signed in 2020. Since the deal was announced, the royal couple have only released one podcast episode: a holiday special that same year. Guests such as Stacey Abrams, Elton John, James Corden, Tyler Perry and their son Archie were featured.
According to Spotify, through the Spotify deal, the royal couple aims to “expose diverse perspectives and voices and build community through shared experiences, narratives and values”.
The deal comes after the royal couple signed a multi-year deal with Netflix. Both the deals were struck in March 2020 after the royal couple stepped down from their royal duties and relocated to Montecito, California.
