Spotify’s refusal to moderate content will soon become a nightmare

Last October, five months after Spotify acquired Joe Rogan’s podcast, several employees protested against the show’s transphobic nature. There was even more controversy after Rogan hosted an episode with Alex Jones, whose InfoWars podcast was banned by Facebook and Apple. Spotify has mostly diverted the questions about the podcasts’ content — until now. In an interview with Axios, CEO Daniel Ek, said that the company exercises no editorial control over its creators: We have a lot of really well-...

Spotify’s podcast ad revenue jumps 627% in Q2

In the minutes before its quarterly earnings call this morning, Spotify played advertisements for its Originals & Exclusives, like the true crime show “Deathbed Confessions,” and the sex and relationships podcast “Call Her Daddy,” which Spotify recently acquired in a deal worth $60 million. Sure, it’s kind of hilarious to hear a recording of host Alex Cooper’s voice say, “Hey, daddy gang!” as investors log in to an 8 AM call, but the subtext rang clear: Spotify is serious about growing its podca...

Hollywood’s Best Sermon? Pulpit?

”In this same New Bedford there stands a Whaleman’s Chapel, and few are the moody fishermen, shortly bound for the Indian Ocean or Pacific, who fail to make a Sunday visit to the spot. I am sure that I did not.”—Moby Dick, Chapter 6, written by Herman Melville I don’t remember how old I was […]

UFC champion Brandon Moreno embraces building his legacy

To say Brandon Moreno’s life has changed in the past five weeks is an understatement. One day he is in Mexico City to meet Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. Another day he is being mobbed by fans outside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum before a soccer match between Mexico and Nigeria. “It’s been such a blessing with him. He’s such a great guy. This whole journey,” said Jason House, Moreno’s manager for the past three years. “The result obviously is amazing, but the process has bee...

Notes on Quentin Tarantino’s Writing Routine

About an hour into his recent interview on Joe Rogan’s podcast, Quentin Tarantino was asked about his writing habits. “It all changed,” he revealed, “more or less around the writing of Inglorious Basterds.” Before starting work on the 2009 film, Tarantino described himself as “an amateur, mad little writer” who would work late at night, or by going to a restaurant, where he would “order some shit, and drink a lot of coffee, and be there for 4 hours with all my shit laid out.” He decided he want...

"Drinking not only allows wary, self-interested individuals to drop their guard and collaborate, he writes, it also facilitates the creativity and playfulness our species needs to innovate and survive."

"A negroni will essentially wipe out the prefrontal cortex, the site of pragmatic, grown-up thinking. Zap the same region with a transcranial magnet and you’ll get the same results: happier, less inhibited, more childlike adults. Given that transcranial magnets are 'expensive, not very portable and typically not welcome at parties,' alcohol remains a handy, low-tech tool to get good will and fresh ideas flowing. For our ancestors, inebriation was especially essential, 'a robust and elegant respo...

"What's that thing, I think, Voltaire said — 'Not that I should succeed, but that my friends should fail'?"

Said Duncan Trussell, near the end of a new 3-hour Joe Rogan podcast. Voltaire?! I love Duncan Trussell, who is also, and very obviously, Joe Rogan's favorite guest, but I think he's got the attribution wrong. I associate it with Gore Vidal, but in the form "It is not enough to succeed; others must fail." No friends in that picture. But Quote Investigator looked into a set of similar quotes, one of which was "It is not enough to succeed; one’s friends must fail."I think it's better without dragg...

"See-through socks?" — Joe Rogan tries to keep up with David Lee Roth and David Lee Roth just barrels along.

 You can scroll back to the beginning to watch that whole 12-minute clip. I actually listened to the entire 3+ hours of the podcast on Spotify. Roth is such a motor mouth, but it's all pretty interesting. He did leave Rogan in the dust, though. The main thing Roth got across — if you take the 3 hours as a whole — is that he's internalized the lesson his father taught by asking — every night at the dinner table — what did you contribute? In case you're wondering, Roth will be getting a new toot...

The Cal Ripken of television.

Thanks to all wishing me get well - hard to do since I feel perfectly fine, but I appreciate it!

Oh well, even Cal Ripken had to sit one out at some point.— Bill Maher (@billmaher) May 14, 2021 Maher has tested positive for Covid, but he's symptomless — and vaccinated — so it may be a false positive.
