Meghan Markle’s Podcast Stumbles: Talent Agency Criticizes Lack of ‘Audio Talent’

Meghan Markle finds herself in the spotlight again, but it’s for her podcast this time.

The United Talent Agency (UTA) CEO, Jeremy Zimmer, publicly criticized Markle at the 2023 Cannes Lions advertising festival, pointing out her lack of “audio talent.”

Zimmer expressed disappointment that Markle’s “Archetypes” podcast failed to achieve the anticipated listener numbers.

Moreover, he asserted that Markle doesn’t possess the qualities of a “great audio talent.”

Launched in December 2022, Markle’s podcast features thought-provoking interviews with women discussing the societal labels imposed upon them.

While some critics have praised the content, others have found fault with its slow pacing and lack of a clear focus.

Zimmer’s comments stirred a mixed reaction among the public.

Some agreed with his assessment, claiming that Markle’s supposed “audio talent” deficit is evident in her podcast.

They labeled it as dull and highlighted her lack of natural speaking skills.

On the other hand, defenders of Markle argue that she is a talented woman exploring the podcasting realm, still in the process of finding her voice.

They believe she is learning and will eventually excel.

The fate of Markle’s podcast hangs in the balance, with uncertainties surrounding its future.

Zimmer’s critique has undoubtedly cast a shadow over the project and raised doubts about its potential success.

Additionally, reports indicate that Markle’s podcast has fallen short of her initial expectations.

Recent figures suggest it was downloaded only 600,000 times in its first month, a far cry from the projected 1 million downloads Markle had hoped to achieve.
