Sources: Not Only Was Meghan Markel's Podcast Boring and a Huge Money-Loss for Spotify, But... She Didn't Even Conduct "Her" Interviews

Via Matt Vespa at Townhall, a new report says that she didn't even bother asking "her" guests the questioned -- her staff did, and then she recorded herself asking the questions later and edited that in.

Just after Spotify's breakup with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a new report alleges that Markle's interviews for her "Archetypes" podcast were not conducted by her.

Podnews reported that some of the show's interviews were done by members of the duchess's staff -- and audio of her voice asking the questions was clipped in later.

The Post has reached out to representatives for Markle and Archewell Audio for comment.

The revelations come shortly after Spotify and Archewell said in a joint statement to The Post that they have "mutually agreed to part ways and are proud of the series we made together."

A source previously told The Post that the Archewell media company launched by Harry, 38, and Markle, 41, didn't produce enough content to receive the full payout of the $20 million deal they agreed to in 2020.

Sportswriter and podcaster Bill Simmons slammed the couple in the wake of the fractured deal, saying he once met with Harry about podcast ideas and calling the pair "f--king grifters" in Friday's episode of his namesake podcast.

Podnews reported that "multiple sources" shared that some of the interviews were done by members of Meghan Markle's staff -- with her voice added in later.

"Archetypes" -- which premiered in August -- was the only project to come out of the Spotify deal and featured just 12 episodes.

Speculation that Markle doesn't directly interview her guests started circulating when writer Allison Yarrow shared on Instagram in August that she was "excited to be included in the visionary series."

Yet the post showed Yarrow posing in front of a sign for the audio production house Gimlet Media -- and included thanks to an "Archetypes" producer for being "an excellent interviewer."


Yarrow's explanations and comments were edited and interwoven between comments from the Duchess of Sussex in the podcast audio, the Daily Mail reported in November.

Did she fake every interview? No, Matt Vespa says. She did interview the celebrities, the people she wanted to suck up to. But for The Common People, she had her producer talk to the undesirables, and then faked her own interaction with the lower orders.

If I'm being honest, I imagine most on-air "news professionals" also pawn off interviewing duties to lower-social-order producers and researchers, though I don't know if they then fake their own participation in the interviews.
