Neil Young gives the finger to Spotify, while influencers and content creators fight for naming rights.


In today's episode, Neil Young takes a stand against Joe Rogan and Spotify. Will it work and does it matter?

And...right-wing commentator Joe Bongino gets booted from YouTube. Do they have the right, and what's the long-term play?

We discuss the meaning of influencers versus creators as McDonald's goes influencer, Trump Social goes searching, and Forbes gets into the creator economy.

Quotes: 

Joe: “As a content creator you have your decision on which platforms you want to distribute on… this is the great thing about being a content creator.” (20:05)

Robert: “Creators, marketers, creators, brands are available to say no to the platforms but the platforms are increasingly saying no to the brands. It’s a fascinating time to be sorting this out where we sit in the spectrum.”(23:27)

Joe: “YouTube is making a decision that they don’t like this content and you’re done. Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and any other platform can make that decision and we’re beholden to it as creators. There’s nothing we can do about it.” (25:00)

Joe: “Are some content creators influencers? Yes, I’m sure some are influencers/content creators but not our idea of being a part of the creator economy… when I read most of these articles about the creator economy they’re very specifically talking about influencers.” (35:55)

Robert: “Advertising is influencer marketing. It is simply putting your message into a place that is influences the opinion of an audience.” (38:19)

Robert: This is why some of the social media platforms are so toxic right now because that’s all it is. It’s about tension. You have to create tension. It creates viewership… You can also monetize a niche audience.” (46:57)
