I dont get it, how this this affect the audience? Spotify is a free download and hes still doing video + podcasts

I used to listen to LPOTL every week, but if its not in Overcast its kinda out of mind - have never tried to listen to podcasts in Spotify. I think Patreon could solve that, but I moved on.

Im sure them and Joe will lose 1 of me for gaining access to 2-3 new people, Im in the minority.

Yeah, I also have no interest in downloading Spotify. I have too many podcasts in Overcast that I don't get to as it is, and I don't really care to have my podcasts spread across multiple apps.

I use Google as it gets rid of YouTube ads and can play YouTube with the screen off.

I have tidal as well free with Sprint but never use it.

I should add that most of the people I know dont pay for music subs at all and the only phone apps they use are Facebook and YouTube. Thats life over 40 in rural Appalachia. A lot of them love JRE, so I guess theyre about to start using Spotify.

I was an avid LPOTL listener and stopped when they went to Spotify. Its personal preference really and I don't want Spotify getting poo poo up with podcast recommendations.

Plus personally I think the show had suffered since they're spreading themselves a bit thin.

As for the Rogan move, I saw Cernovich on twitter claiming it as a good move and how YouTube is increasingly draconian, presumably because they won't monetise people who say the N-word.

Also Spotify not paying artists fairly, building up their brand and spending 100 million on a podcaster is just depressing.

The Spotify move rules because one of the many things Joe repeats ad nauseam is how he loves the freedom of doing what he wants with no bosses.

Hes claiming this is still the case and Spotify are hosting him, not interfering in any way.

I imagine his lawyer and agent are on top of things to ensure that this is the case.

I'm kind of over downloading apps, I just don't have the time to figure out if they are selling all my data to Palantir or whoever. (They are all selling your data to Palantir). I am also out if it's not on Overcast

Honestly after a few years of listening to Joe just berate people for being ugly and not exercising enough and not hitting the sauna every day it's kind of getting old. He's a very vain Los Angeles person with a very Los Angeles mindset and when he gets another super vain person on like Whitney Cummings or Brendan Schaub or whoever it's just insufferable.

Apple Music is pretty terrible, I find. Not just the interface, but the lack of playlists by other users really kills the service for me, it's a huge advantage Spotify has. It's very easy to search for anything (like a game, or TV show) and find curated playlists by other users that contain the music of whatever you were searching for.

Apple Music definitely has this, although Im sure theres not as many as on Spotify.

I made a Hotline Miami soundtrack playlist with my own uploaded tracks several years ago, and it still gets regularly added by other Apple Music users.

But every now and then he has a guest on like the guy who wrote the Manson book and it's a 3 hour deep dive into a fascinating topic and it brings me back around again.

Yeah, even though I'm majorly skeptical of where his claims take him.

Like, yes there's actually doubt about Mason's motives in those killings. In fact there's always been doubt. Manson had talked about The Beatles, had indeed said they were talking to him through song and said they were alerting him to a race war but Manson said a lot of crazy poo poo.

Then, when he orders the family out to kill he tells them to write something 'witchy' on the walls which is what they do. They happen to reference The Beatles, so that's the motive the prosecution went with. Even Vince Bugliosi in his book knows this is flimsy but it's also all they have.

The reality is more likely that Manson, who was floating around on the fringes of famous people but scared them off through being a piece of poo poo, wanted to kill someone who had aggrieved him in the past. That someone was Terry Melcher. Melcher lived at Cielo Drive, so that's where they went.

The problem with the guys Rogan tends to have on is that that isn't enough. Instead Manson was in CIA experiments or was a secret operative and they find 1001 connections to all these different historical figures and events.

To be clear, I didn't mean to imply I was all-in on that theory -- I just find it interesting to listen to, for the same reasons that I used to love listening to "Coast to Coast AM" on the ride home from the bars twenty years ago.

Its interesting that Spotify managed to get Rogan to sell out, but I guess if someone shows up with $100M in a dumptruck and promises no interference its pretty hard to say no.

On the other hand, I didn't even know Spotify had videos, and I mostly watch Rogan because its always in my youtube recommended videos so its hard to say how it will turn out in terms of audience.

Latest fight companion podcast also continues to reinforce that Eddie Bravo is one of the dumbest humans alive.

Yeah but you can just read the Tom O'Neil book instead of dealing with Rogan's half-assed just-started reading it version of events. You can also just go look up the works of interesting people like Killer Mike or Abby Martin or whoever instead of dealing with the Rogan version.

Every time Eddie Bravo talks I can't help but notice how all the conspiracies always target or involve people not on Trump's team. Sometimes he is sorta coherent, sometimes he completely contradicts himself, but no matter what the narrative is never ever critical of Trump or his cronies. So funny how that always happens, it's almost as if there were a conspiracy of some sort.

My favorite Bravoism is when he's cornered logically he'll say, "Yeah, but I'm crazy so I believe all kinds of stuff!" as if he made a point.

Daryl Davis (#1419 from January 30) was one of the best guests I've ever heard on any podcast. Amazing storyteller, and a black man who can befriend Klan members and then get them to ditch their hoods? Holy gently caress.

Gonna live this a listen, thanks for posting. Over the past few months Ive developed this love-hate for Joe Rogan. Hes kinda a massive idiot, but so am I so he asks people questions I would feel too embarrassed to ask, but then he goes a bridge too far and keeps trying to insist China might have lab grown covid or something, then the epidemiologist is all Nah actually heres why that isnt true and then he replies with well if it was true wouldnt xyz?. He pulled the same stunt with a vaccination expert by repeatedly floating debunked myths over and over.

Whatever though, his massive popularity means he gets to bring on really interesting people and I learn a lot. You guys have any more favorite, less political, episodes? War stuff is fine but I need a break from domestic uspol. The cartel interviews were rad, as was Michael Scott Moore (the guy kidnapped by Somali pirates for like 1000 days). Ive listened to most of the Rhonda Patrick episodes, the sleep expert episode, Michael Pollan.

Chuck Palahniuk (#1158) stands out in my mind. It was mostly Chuck telling really cool stories and Joe giving him space to do so.

As someone else mentioned you can often treat Rogan like Coast to Coast AM and there are some good ones along those lines. Cmdr Fravor UFO encounter and Bob Lazar Area 51 stuff are fun ones that way.

I listened to a bit of Rogan today and he went on this surprisingly thoughtful rant about how everybody has been cooped up inside and so many people have lost their jobs and have gotten absolutely no help from the state and there was this flashpoint sort of event


Anyway he ended it by saying everybody has also just watched the Joker movie and that's where I lost my mind and turned it off because I just can't handle how stupid Joe is anymore
