Joe: “You’re not talking about canceling. What we’re talking about here is simple fact checking that needs to be done when you get to a certain level.” (23:34)
Robert: “ This [Spotify controversy] will eventually get sorted out in legislation. It’s gonna have to and this is the best outcome here. We put some definition around what it means to be a platform versus what it means to be a media company. And, the level of editorial responsibility around that.” (27:43)
Joe: “Podcasting is not an email list and it’s not on Facebook so you have some control over it. You decide where you distribute it but once you sign up with one of these networks, good or bad, you lose control.” (29:26)
Robert: “When you become that sizable and you start to take consumer money, they [the public] have a right to know who you are. You at some level should not expect a right to anonymity.” (43:34)
Joe: “I would love to see a small business Saturday where instead of giving all of our money over to these companies… we’re going to support some smaller creators and give some of that ad budget to niche communities.” (47:44)
