New royal podcast to sift fact from fiction

PRESS RELEASE · Sydney NSW, Australia ·

Australia’s leading authority on the Royal Family, Juliet Rieden, has joined forces with her former Australian Women’s Weekly colleague, Bryce Corbett, to produce a weekly podcast – The Royal Record - sifting royal fact from fiction, available on LiSTNR.

As Editor-At-Large of The Australian Women’s Weekly and its Royal Correspondent for the past 11 years, Juliet Rieden has established herself as the country’s foremost authority on the Royal Family.

Her acclaimed 2015 book, The Royals In Australia, went behind the scenes of 150 years of royal visits and included access to the Windsor Castle archives. Juliet is the most connected and trusted royal reporter in Australia and has secured exclusive interviews and stories over the years with senior members of the Royal Family.

Juliet’s co-host, Bryce Corbett, is a journalist of 25 years’ experience, a published author and, via Squiz Kids (recipient of a 2020 Australian Podcasting Award), an award-winning podcast host.

The Royal Record’s Juliet Rieden said: “On any given day, there’s a lot of noise out there about the Royal Family, but only some of it bears any relation to the truth.

“This podcast will endeavour to set the royal record straight on the biggest stories of the week and bring a bit of old-fashioned journalistic rigour to an area of reporting that too often strays into the realm of fairy tales.”

Co-host Bryce Corbett added: “I don’t know anyone with more rigour than Juliet. She’s interviewed Prince Charles, been on tour with Harry and Meghan, William and Kate and Camilla and interviewed Crown Princess Mary in her Copenhagen palace. Her royal contact book is the best in Australia. When it comes to sifting royal fact from fiction, Juliet’s your go-to person.”

As well as a deep dive into the royal stories of the week, the podcast promises to cast light on the machine behind the Windsors, examine the forces at play behind every royal headline and put it all through the prism of the Royal Family’s rich and storied history.

The Royal Record, produced by LiSTNR’s Head of News and Entertainment, Sam Cavanagh and Tait McGregor, is a weekly podcast that will dissect the royal headlines of the week and hold them up to scrutiny.

The Royal Record will be published every Tuesday, 11th May, and will be available via the LiSTNR app.
