    On today's episode:

    1. We’ve taken a day to process it, and we finally feel like we’re ready to dissect Harry & Meghan’s big Oprah interview. Everyone is still talking about it. In fact, Meghan’s number one critic--Piers Morgan--maybe even quit his job over it this morning.

    Today we talked with BuzzFeed senior reporter and British monarchy expert Ellie Hall. Oprah cited Ellie’s post comparing the media’s treatment of Meghan versus Kate in the interview. Listen to hear her take on why Harry stressed the Queen was not the one to comment on Archie’s skin tone, the reaction from the British press, and whether she thinks Harry and Meghan will ever mend their relationship with the rest of the royal family.

    2. Papa John is back on television, this time talking about his vocabulary.
