After striking a major deal with Netflix back in September, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are plotting a partnership with another streaming platform. The power couple signed an exclusive podcast partnership with Spotify.

The royal duo is expected to produce and host podcasts through their newly formed production company Archewell Audio. Their first podcast series will premiere next year, but it will be preceded by a holiday special hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

This project is expected to premiere later this month and it will feature “stories of hope and compassion from inspirational guests in celebration of the new year.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle explained their decision to start the podcast by saying they believe podcasts have the power to help us connect to one another without distraction. “With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so, because when we hear each other, and hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are,” the royal couple said in a joint statement.
