Archetypes listeners can expect more of the ‘real’ version of Meghan as she exposes some very personal incidents from her life. In the first episode, she revealed her baby’s near death experience after a fire had broken out.

“People should expect the real me in this and probably the me that they’ve never gotten to know,” she said.

“Certainly not in the past few years, where everything is through the lens of the media, as opposed to: ‘Hey, it’s me’. I’m just excited to be myself and talk and be unfiltered and … Yeah, it’s fun.”
