‘It’s probably safe to say into every aspect of my life. This message to me and my classmates was clear: our futures as young women were limitless. Ambition. Well, that was the whole point. So I don’t ever remember personally feeling the negative connotation behind the word ambitious, until I started dating my now husband. And apparently ambition is a terrible, terrible thing. For a woman that is, according to some,” Meghan said to set up the conversation.

Previewing the type of guests who will be interviewed in the future, Meghan added: “This is Archetypes – the podcast where we dissect, explore and subvert the labels that try to hold women back. I’ll have conversations with women who know all too well how these typecasts shape our narratives. And I’ll talk to historians to understand how we even got here in the first place.”

Next week’s episode of the weekly podcast will feature a conversation with Mariah Carey.

Serena recently announced her plans to play the 2022 US Open as well as her retirement from tennis.
