This week we talk about Finding Freedom, the largely anti-climactic tell-all about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We break down how the book portrays the divisions and competition within the royal family, why driving out Harry and Meghan was probably a fatal error for the British monarchy, and how ongoing scandals could impact the royal family. Join us as we low key call for revolution!
It’s been a horrible week and it’s only Tuesday! Here is a seventy minute breather full of entertainment stories, like the latest in DC Films and HBOMax, and dumb royal gossip. And when you’re done listening–or before you listen, or while you’re listening, we don’t know your life–here are a few links to check out to take action to support protesters and activists around the country.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dropped a bombshell on the royal family, and we are swimming in premium, grade-A gossip. We dive into the Sussex bombshell, the timeline, the rumors, and the potential ramifications. Then, we pivot to talk pop culture resolutions for 2020 and all the things we hope we have time for this year. Join us as we break down the latest royal gossip!

This week we’re revisiting British royal gossip as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle take on the British tabloid press. We discuss the lawsuits, what they’re really about (hint: racism), and how Harry and Meghan’s headlines tie into Prince Andrew’s royal Epstein mess. We also peer into the future and make predictions about how this might play out over the next decade or two, and whether or not monarchy can really make it in the twenty-first century. Join us for another round of royal gossip!

This week we dive into British royal gossip and the rumors of a feud between the houses of Cambridge and Sussex. Wherefore? What happened? What IS the grand unifying theory of British gossip? We get into all of it, jumping off from Nicole Cliffe’s tweet about the whole mess and getting into the British press’s abominable treatment of Meghan Markle. We speculate wildly and make grand assumptions, so join us for our completely hypothetical discussion about the British royal family and the plethora of gossip stories they produce.
