Meghan Markle has announced her Spotify podcast will finally debut this summer – 18 months after she inked a $25m deal – after unsuccessfully calling for a crackdown on Joe Rogan.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s Archewell foundation shared the news in a statement Thursday. It came two months after they called on their new employer to crack down on COVID vaccine lies peddled by Joe Rogan, which only resulted in a slap-on-the-wrist for the hugely popular libertarian podcaster.
Meghan’s statement said: ‘As we all continue to tackle the misinformation era, Archewell Audio has found it important to work with our partners at Spotify to ensure that the digital technologies so many of us use every day are rooted in strong principles of trust and safety,’ according to the Archewell statement.
‘We are encouraged by ongoing conversations we’ve had with Spotify on this shared goal and have been working closely with their team—as well as their senior leadership—towards policies, practices, and strategies meant to raise creator awareness, minimize the spread of misinformation, and support transparency.’
