What does the Joe Rogan/Spotify controversy have to do with the freaky things you do in the bedroom?
Surprisingly, A LOT!
This situation uncovered bigger issues regarding corporate control of information & influence over censorship. In 2022 posting about sexual health, LGBTQIA+ activism, or thirst traps online is risky due to SESTA FOSTA, bank restrictions, and impending legislation like Earn It. Discussions about structural inequity and/or content made by marginalized creators is suppressed by biased algorithms.
Indie podcasts & audio apps are among the last least censored mediums and a central hub for these kinds of discussions. How could one corporation's aggressive ambition to dominate audio entertainment threaten that & more? How did Spotify become the largest podcast platform & what’s next? This episode is a wild ride taking you from Joe Rogansville all the way to your sexual freedom.
