Joe Rogan is happy to promote misinformation and extremist voices on his podcast, and many artists recently left Spotify as a result of his continued inclusion on the platform. We talk about our history with Spotify as consumers and as an artist, and wonder what the hell CEO Daniel Ek is doing.Streamed Live on https://twitch.tv/michaelforrest, Friday 11th Feb 2021---- Stuff we made ----Squares TV https://squares.tv?ct=podIvanka’s Blog https://ivanka.blog---- This Week's Links ----[1] BRAVOS - https://brightonrestaurantawards.co.uk/ [2] Michael’s new thing - https://squares.tv/deluge[3] Office Hours - https://officehours.global [4] Shoot clean camera feed - http://clean.camera [5] Artists React to Spotify CEO Saying They Need to Work Harder - https://www.vice.com/en/article/5dzje3/daniel-ek-spotify-artists-pay-interview [6] The Hunt - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2106476/ [7] Weird Kids’ Videos and Gaming the Algorithm - https://youtu.be/LKp2gikIkD8[8] Solving the Debate Bro Problem - https://youtu.be/7Z3MqJakNbI[9] “Nothing that only men like is cool” - https://twitter.com/smorgasboredom/status/1274124416499187713 [10] Rumble Offers Joe Rogan $100 Million to Switch Platforms - https://time.com/6145835/joe-rogan-rumble-podcast-offer/ [11] Why artists are leaving Spotify - https://www.washingtonpost.com/arts-entertainment/2022/02/03/why-artists-leaving-spotify/ ---- Credits ----Talking is by Ivanka Majic and Michael ForrestMusic available on Apple Music | Spotify | BandcampPatreon: https://patreon.com/grandpodcasthttps://twitter.com/ivankahttps://twitter.com/michaelforresthttps://twitter.com/PodcastGrand
