Meghan Markle Debuts ‘Archetypes’ Podcast On Spotify; Serena Williams Is First Guest
Meghan Markle unveiled the first episode of her new Spotify podcast Archetypes, welcoming debut visitor Serena Williams and promising a collection “where we dissect, explore, and subvert the labels that strive to keep female back.”
Today’s debut episode arrives almost two years after Markle and husband Prince Harry, beneath their Archewell Audio banner, signed an one-of-a-kind multiyear deal with Spotify. Next week’s episode will characteristic an interview with Mariah Carey.
Also featured in today’s episode is Dr. Laura Cray, a UC Berkeley professor and specialist on gender in the workplace.
During the Williams conversation, Prince Harry drops by, interestingly unexpected. “You wanna come say hi?,” Markle asks. “Look who simply popped in.”
Other great moments consist of Markle and Williams reflecting on embracing ambition from a younger age, the struggles they felt as new moms with careers in the public eye, and Williams discussing her selection to pivot from tennis towards new experiences such as writing for Vogue.
