@readsteven Thanks for sharing this!
@readsteven bandcamp doesnt have a lot of the songs i like, is it worth moving from spotify to SoundCloud?
@nuked Personally, moving away from Spotify is always worth it, but there are too many variables there for me to make a recommendation for you.
@readsteven what's it doing to podcasts btw? (not being adversarial, help me hate spotify even harder)
@elilla Podcasts are (and have been for 20 years) an open format that anyone can publish.
Spotify is trying to privatize this open ecosystem by buying up popular podcasts, putting them behind their own paywall and their proprietary player. Oh and still calling them podcasts.
@readsteven If it destroys Jo Rogan's shitty, overrated, posturing, repetitive, sycophantic, specious alt-lite spamcast then all power to them... I'll still listen though. I quite enjoy it.
@readsteven thanks a lot. Have passed this on to Spotifying friends, who think it's a great idea.
@readsteven I have shared this on www.musicblob.it
@readsteven This is really showing how bad spotify is about monopolizing music
Out of 100 songs in my 2020 playlist, Bandcamp has 3.
