Spotify is buying up all the popular podcasts and removing them from the commons in order to drive you to their platform.

Podcasts have somehow stayed open access, built on standards, and just (mostly) work. Moving them to a proprietary platform just so a few people (ie: not you) can make money is bad for everyone who isn't making money. (ie: you.)

Will keep an eye on this but I haven't encountered any podcast on spotify only.

@SwindlerOfInsanity They have been signing podcasters to exclusive deals for more than a year. Today it was announced that Joe Rogan's podcast, one of the top-five most popular podcasts, will be exclusive to their platform later this year. variety.com/2020/digital/news/
