Meghan Markle beats Joe Rogan at the top of the US and UK podcast charts.
Only after two days of Meghan Markle’s podcast, Archetypes, the debut of its first episode, it has already gained enough popularity to unseat the contentious commentator.
The podcast is in collaboration with Spotify, Gimlet, and Archewell Audio.
Right now, Meghan Markle beats Joe Rogan with her podcast Archetypes which is at the top of Spotify’s rankings in the US and UK, as well as Canada, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand.
Even though Rogan, 55, has been accused of distributing false information about Covid, his podcast has constantly ranked at the top of the charts for the last three years. Joe Rogan has been in the news for troubling himself in the controversies or either his guests. He said any one who is eating health, exercising and is young doesn’t need to be vaccinated. This statement caused a lot of negativity that he is spreading false news. Joe Rogan has recently invited Mark Zuckerberg on his podcast which has become talk of the town.
However, Markle, 41, is prepared to persistently challenge Rogan in the upcoming episodes of Archetypes, which will examine the ways in which language has been manipulated against women throughout history.
Serena Williams, a tennis icon, and Markle discussed how the term “ambitious” has been used to insult female athletes in the first episode.
Serena is Meghan’s close friend who also attended her wedding. The first episode’s executive producer, Meghan, spoke to Williams about the unfair treatment women get when they are referred to as “ambitious.” The duo also talked about how this would affect the rest of their life.
In their conversation, Meghan and Serena discussed how ambition is a bad, horrible word when it comes to women. Serena analysed how men and women are perceived differently as she thought about ambition.
Serena also discussed how she manages the demands of being a mother to her 4-year-old daughter Olympia while maintaining her tennis profession. She flashed back to when Olympia fractured her wrist the night before the French Open.
She stated, “I somehow managed to win, but I was so emotionally spent and just like so emotionally drained that it was, it was crazy.”
During one of their conversations, they brought up the topic of maintaining a composed attitude in public while dealing with personal difficulties.
Markle reflected on the time in 2019 when she and Harry were on a trip to South Africa. Soon after arriving, they left four-month-old Archie with the staff so they could attend a formal meeting. After they finished the engagement, they were told that Archie’s room caught fire. They hurried back home, and according to Meghan, “everyone’s in tears” including Archie’s nanny Lauren. Even after the horrifying incident, they had to give another official engagement.
