Topic: Spotify Takes A Heavy-hitter; YouTube is in Trouble

A podcaster/pseudo-comedian (shots fired) by the name of Joe Roegan signed a $100 million-dollar contract with Spotify a few days ago. What does this mean? Spotify literally just stole not only one of the top YouTubers away but also destroyed Google and Apple podcasts. He will have to take all of his content off YouTube (except micro-snippets he can put on to promote) and move it to Spotify. Did Spotify lose 100 million? No, their market share skyrocketed and they profited 5 billion! What does this mean for YouTube, a company that has been de-platforming individuals for free-speech and perpetuate bullying, harassment, and trolling? Well, this could mean the end. LISTEN IN!
