Spotify is reportedly fighting with employees about hosting episodes of Joe Rogan's podcast

 

  • Spotify CEO Daniel Ek addressed concerns in an all-hands meeting on Wednesday
  • Ek said Rogan's podcast had been the subject of 10 meetings and told employees not to leak to the press
  • Spotify has already removed JRE episodes by right wing figures as reported by Vice

Spotify is facing a heated internal struggle with employees over whether it should host episodes of "The Joe Rogan Experience".

Vice reported that CEO Daniel Ek addressed staff concerns at an all-hands meeting on Wednesday. "In the case of Joe Rogan, a total of 10 meetings have been held with various groups and individuals to hear their respective concerns," Ek said, per sources who spoke to Vice on the condition of anonymity.

Vice said its sources shared questions that had been submitted for the Q&A portion of the meeting. The questions suggest that friction is building between Spotify's leadership and its staff over the podcast.

"Many LGBTQAI+/ally Spotifiers feel unwelcome and alienated because of leadership's response in JRE conversations. What is your message to those people?" asked employees.

The back-and-forth indicates Spotify will increasingly have to deal with moderation issues not dissimilar to those at social-media companies like Facebook and Twitter. The company has already removed other episodes featuring right-wing figures according to Vice.

forgot to add that the supression of free speech is right from the fascist (real fascism, not 2020 fascism) playbook.

Rogan’s podcasts remind me, almost spot on, to the kinda stuff Goebels was spouting on German outlets in the 30s. 
 

Spotify employees and those 10 meetings are the least they should be doing!

A company that literally makes all their money off everyone else’s hardwork, they should all be grateful they’re even collecting a paycheck.

Explained how to make fun of trannies (Bruce Jenner) without pissing people off. Apparently his method didn't work haha Then he apparently didn't fact check some arsonist shit. He's great.

Happening more and more. Look at open letters from google employees to their CEO about not providing cloud services to the government as an example.

He didn’t say anything,far left wing employees are letting their personal politics influence their decision on what people can or can’t hear. 
 

it’s not their responsibility to have the decision. If I want to hear about lizard people taking over the world or that sandy was fake, I have the right too.
