Can’t keep a good prince down! Formal senior royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are taking over the media industry. After signing a deal in September with Netflix, the couple has decided to take on the world of podcasting. The pair recently formed an audio-first production company, Archewell Audio, and signed an exclusive partnership deal with Spotify.
In a statement released by the pair, they shared that their goal is to produce programming, “aimed to uplift and entertain audiences around the world,” as well as place a spotlight on, “diverse perspectives and voices.” They also stated, “What we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction. With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so, because when we hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are.”
Archewell Audio, in partnership with Spotify’s Gimlet studio, released a holiday special in mid-December hosted by the Duke and Duchess featuring inspirational guests like Sir Elton John and James Corden, and even a special appearance by their son Archie! The first series produced by the duo is expected to debut this year, and we’ll definitely be adding it to our podcast rotation.
