The Next Track, Episode #228 – [bleep] Spotify

Spotify is getting some flack for hosting an exclusive audio program with someone who spreads covid misinformation, and a number of musicians, including Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, have pulled their music from the service. And streaming still doesn’t pay well; music streaming services should raise their prices to be able to pay more.

  1. You guys talked about streaming and the artists’ revenue from that. What about SiriusXM radio? What’s the revenue for the artists from that?

  2. I have no major issues with Joe Rogan’s podcast though he does choose some people who have leftfield views or promote conspiracy theories. So his podcast could be more balanced in the info it provides.

    My main issue with Spotify (and the reason I dumped them) is their $120USD million investment in AI weapons technology. Not appropriate for a music company in my opinion. Of course the other major reason is they announced they were going to go lossless and still haven’t delivered.
