Revealed: Meghan Markle hires fact checker for her Archetypes Spotify podcast series

  • Pasulka writes about “activism, race, music, business, queer culture and gender”

Meghan Markle has hired a fact checker for her highly anticipated Spotify podcast series, Archetypes.

His composure and passion in front of a camera or microphone is certainly unmatched in royal history. But those gifts haven’t blinded the Duchess of Sussex to the fact that she, like the rest of humanity, is fallible.

The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden can reveal that Meghan employed a ‘fact checker’ for archetypes, which resumes today, having been suspended immediately following the Queen’s death.

Meghan did not choose an ordinary recruit, but a young and very talented American writer, Nicole Pasulka, whose interests closely mirror her own.

“I write about criminal justice, activism, race, music, business, queer culture and gender,” Pasulka alerts visitors to her website, which mentions that she’s “currently writing a book.” .

In fact, his book was published this summer — titled: How You Get Famous.

Lest the uninitiated jump to the conclusion that this is a fictionalized account of a pretty mixed-race American actress catapulted to international attention by marrying the youngest son of a king, they should think again. .

Rather, it is a “deep dive into New York’s underground drag scene”, and has been hailed as “an engaging book that will appeal to genre scholars as well as anyone with an interest in queer culture”. . There are currently no suggestions that Pasulka’s role will extend beyond the podcast.

A fact checker could clear up the confusion that has sometimes – and sadly – ​​followed some of Meghan's statements.  For example, in an interview with US magazine The Cut, she recalled chatting with a South African cast member of The Lion King at the film's London premiere in 2019.

It’s a shame. A fact checker could clear up the confusion that has sometimes – and sadly – ​​followed some of Meghan’s statements.

For example, in an interview with US magazine The Cut, she recalled chatting with a South African cast member of The Lion King at the film’s London premiere in 2019.

“He said, ‘I just need you to know: when you married into this family, we rejoiced in the streets like we did when Mandela was released from prison,'” Meghan recalled.

Yet Dr John Kani, the only South African actor, pointed out that he had never met Meghan and was not at the premiere. Of course, as the late Queen memorably said on another occasion, “memories may vary”.
