Her work has been featured on NPR, WBUR, and Yale Medicine magazine, among other places.
Rebecca Sananes made the claims in a TikTok video; she created ‘Archetypes’ as she left Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s Archewell.
Rebecca Sananes earned her Master of Journalism from Boston University and worked as a Vermont Public Radio reporter. Before joining VPR, she worked as a Graduate Fellow at WBUR, Boston’s public radio station, and as a research scientist on a Frontline documentary.
On TikTok, the outgoing head of audio at Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s company Archewell claimed she established the Duchess of Sussex’s award-winning podcast ‘Archetypes.’
Executive producer Rebecca Sananes chose to speak out after her name was omitted from a Hollywood Journalist article titled “The Forty Most Powerful People in Podcasting.” Meghan, who started the talk show as part of a $22,066,200M (£18M) deal with streaming music giant Spotify, said she felt “like a changed woman” after hosting it. However, just weeks before her departure, Sananes attributed the popularity of podcasts, including ‘Archetypes,’ to herself, claiming that it was the producers who did the majority of the hard work, claiming they were “under-valued, under-credited, and under-paid,” according to the Daily Mail.
Who is Rebecca Sananes?
According to Rebecca’s Twitter bio, she is a radio personality, creative director, executive producer, journalist, and media personality. She is well-known for her roles in ‘Archetypes’ (2022), ‘Pivot’ (2018), and Land of the Giants (2019). On TikTok, Sananes stated, “I am the executive producer and founder of Archetypes, which Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, hosts. The forty most powerful podcasting individuals aren’t executives, celebrity hosts, or talent representatives.”
“They are the creators. Producers write, edit, study, make plot lines, make the sound appealing, score, all of it you love about your favorite podcast was created by a producer, and producers are under-valued, under-credited, and under-paid, which is making the company boring and slow. Let’s do better, shall we? “According to reports, she stated.
The first season of Meghan Markle’s much-anticipated podcast featured high-profile guests such as Mariah Carey, Jameela Jamil, Serena Williams, and Paris Hilton. At the People’s Choice Awards, the podcast was titled Pop Podcast of 2022. The Duchess of Sussex released a statement praising listeners and voters on the eve of Harry and Meghan’s shocking Netflix docuseries, declaring their assistance means the universe. She stated, “Thank you to all supporters of Archetypes and fans who voted for us in this special People’s Choice Award. I enjoyed getting my hands dirty in the process, staying late into the night in bed working on writing and creative projects, “according to the Daily Mail.
And I enjoyed delving into a proper discussion with my diversified and encouraging guests, laughing and learning alongside them, and each of you was paying close attention. It has been a labor of love with an incredible team who have all contributed to making this series a reality. Special thanks to Terry Wood, who served as my right hand on this special project, and Andy, Catherine, Matt, Rebecca and the rest of the team, who all worked tirelessly to make each moment memorable. Above all, thank you to everyone who voted. “Your help means everything,” she concluded.
According to numerous reports on Monday, another high-level employee has left Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Archewell brand, marking the 2nd such departure in recent days. Rebecca Sananès, Archewell’s head of audio, is leaving the company after only around 18 months in the position. Still, it’s unknown whether a new season of Meghan Markle’s talk show, Archetypes, will be developed, according to Page Six. It is uncertain when Sananès submitted her resignation, but she plans to move forward on her project, according to an insider.
Others familiar with the situation informed The Telegraph that Sananes resignation was always planned,” though an anonymous source told the publication that her timing was not exactly ideal. Sananes’ withdrawal occurred just days after Archewell’s president, Mandana Dayani, revealed her departure in a “mutually intended” decision. While no substitute for Dayani is arranged, with the Duke and Duchess being expected to take “full leadership” of the team, Cadence13 alum Serena Regan has been named as Sananes’ rightful heir, as reported by The Telegraph.
