Meghan Markle hasn’t wasted much time setting expectations for her first Spotify podcast. Such as The Hollywood Reporter notesSpotify has revealed which is the Duchess of Sussex’s first series archetypes, an exploration of the ‘labels that try to stop women’. The teaser indicates that Markle will have “uncensored” discussions with historians and other experts as they explore the origins of stereotypes and define women’s lives.
Spotify had already announced that Archewell Audio, the production company founded by Markle and Prince Harry, would release their first full-length podcast series in the summer. Until now, the duo had only released a one-episode holiday special.
The announcement helps close an exciting chapter for Spotify. The streaming service signed a deal with Harry and Meghan in December 2020, but the two quickly became concerned about Spotify’s apparent tolerance for misinformation about COVID-19. The pair said they’d raised issues as of April 2021, and those concerns only grew as Neil Young and other creators began pulling or pausing content in protest of Spotify’s apparent solace with Joe Rogan allowing false medical claims on his show. Harry and Meghan changed their minds after meeting Spotify to discuss and shape the anti-misinformation strategy.
This doesn’t end the complaints about Spotify’s approach to fake claims. Even one of his own podcasts, Science USA, fought the service by checking misinformation from other productions. However, it does give Spotify a chance to focus more on promoting exclusive offers and less on harm reduction.
