Also appearing are the hosts of the Teenager Therapy podcast, California teens Gael, Isaac, Thomas, Mark and Kayla, Rappler CEO and executive editor Maria Ressa, Center for Humane Technology president and co-founder Tristan Harris, activist and founder of The Loveland Foundation Rachel Cargle, author and co-director of the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry Safiya U. Noble, disinformation researcher Renee DiResta and Somewhere Good founder Naj Austin.
“Since launching in April, TIME100 Talks has focused on solutions and visions of a better future through conversations with extraordinary leaders from around the world,” said TIME editor-in-chief and CEO Edward Felsenthal.
“This special episode marks our first collaboration, and we are thrilled to partner with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to explore these urgent issues.”
Harry and Meghan were named as Time’s most influential people of 2018 and last year they were recognized among the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet. In September (2020), the couple made their first primetime TV appearance to celebrate Time magazine’s 2020 list of the world’s most influential people.
