Meghan Markle is launching her podcast Archetypes on Spotify.
The Duchess of Sussex will be hosting the “groundbreaking new podcast,” set to be released this summer (Australia’s winter) on the popular streaming app.
Meghan will speak with historians about the “subvert” labels women are given and discover how the degrading words shape their narratives.
A sneak peek into the podcast includes multiple male voices using the subvert labels such as: “she’s a sl*t!”, “and a little emotionally unstable”, “I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments and you didn’t”, and “they are weaker, smaller, they are less intelligent.”
“This is how we talk about women: the words that raise our girls, and how the media reflects women back to us,” Meghan begins.
“But where do these stereotypes come from? And how do they keep showing up and defining our lives?
“I’m Meghan, and this is Archetypes: the podcast where we dissect, explore, and subvert the labels that try to hold women back.
“I’ll have conversations with women who know all too well how these typecasts shape our narratives. And, I’ll talk to historians to understand how we even got here in the first place.
“Archetypes. Coming soon. Listen only on Spotify.”
The podcast is the first production from Archewell Audio, the production company that was started by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Archewell Audio will produce programming that uplifts and entertains audiences around the world,” their website reads.
“The Duke and Duchess will produce podcasts and shows that build community through shared experiences, powerful narratives, and universal values.”
It’s unclear yet whether all future projects will have the name of their son Archie in them somehow.
