Meghan Markle’s podcast ends – level 1

22-06-2023 07:00

Spotify stops working with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

They make podcasts together. But they only make one season. The podcast is called Archetypes. Spotify changes how they do their podcasts. They let go of some workers. The podcast wants to help people who do not usually get a chance to speak. Markle’s guests are for example Serena Williams, Mariah Carey, and Paris Hilton. Archetypes becomes very popular. It wins a prize. The deal is about 20 million dollars.

Spotify does the same thing before with Barack and Michelle Obama’s media company.

Difficult words: season (a set of programs), let go of (to make someone not work for a company anymore), media company (a company which makes films, shows, and internet services).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

How did the podcast Archetypes become so successful and popular?
