@spacewizard Him specifically, I could not care less. But it's not just him. Spotify has been systematically buying up popular podcasts of every stripe. That's the problem.
@readsteven It's a regrettable trend, and I've already ditched one formerly favorite podcast (Last Podcast on the Left) because they went Spotify-only in January.
That made me sad. This makes me happy.
@spacewizard I hear you. (I regret that the nine-figure payday will make even more middle-aged dudes think, "Me and my buddies have opinions too! We're going to start a podcast and be the next Joe Rogan!" There was already a superabundance of these.)
