Spotify ramps up hiring to nudge Harry and Meghan’s podcast projects

Spotify is ramping up work on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s projects by advertising for staff to cover “every step” of production — more than a year into their multimillion-dollar deal.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a reported $25 million deal in December 2020 to make content via their production company, Archewell Audio.

But the only thing we’ve heard from the couple so far is a 33-minute holiday special that same month, featuring high-profile pals such as Sir Elton John and James Corden, as well as their son Archie speaking his first public words.

Last July, Archewell hired podcast producer Rebecca Sananes, and confirmed it was “looking forward to sharing more content later in 2021.”

Now, with nothing yet to show for the deal, Spotify is hiring producers through its podcast arm, Gimlet, to work with Archewell Audio.
