The Duke and Duchess of Sussex already have a holiday special lined up and spoke on the Spotify deal in a new promo. Read on to see what they have in store.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are branching out to the world of podcasting.
Today, the couple announced a new partnership with Spotify to host and produce podcasts with their company Archewell Audio. It's expected their shows will debut in 2021, but a holiday special hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will air later this month, covering "stories of hope and compassion from inspirational guests in celebration of the new year."
Harry & Meghan's statement on Spotify podcast deal
In a new promo for their upcoming podcast content, Harry and Meghan shared the philosophy behind their venture with Spotify. "One thing my husband and I have always talked about is our passion for meeting people and hearing their stories," Meghan said.
"And no matter what the story, they usually offer you a sense of where someone else is coming from, and at the same time remind you in some way of a story about yourself."
Harry added: "And that's what this project is all about — to bring forward different perspectives and voices that perhaps you haven't heard before, and find our common ground. Because when that happens, change really is possible."
In the clip—which you can preview below—Meghan also joked about her husband's "podcast voice" and encouraged him to be the one to reveal Archewell Audio.

With the Spotify partnership, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan add podcasting to their upcoming entry into the media world, after also recently signing a production deal with Netflix to produce streaming content—which is also set to debut in 2021.
Archewell Audio now has a page on Spotify that you can follow. It promises content coming soon and displays a logo similar to the visuals seen on the website for the Archewell Foundation, which Harry and Meghan launched in October. Fans are awaiting a firm release date on the holiday special with the Duke and Duchess's debut as podcast hosts.
