It's Not Just the Platforms (286)

Joe and Robert discuss the back and forth in the OnlyFans saga and determine it's not just the big social sharing platforms that are the problem, but all large influential institutions who can change the rules at any moment.


The NSFW sharing site OnlyFans does an about face after outlawing sexual content the previous week. What can content entrepreneurs learn from all this?

Vanity Fair believes that creators are in trouble either way.

Axel Springer buys Politico and Protocol this week, showing that a content site can be created and then sold in less than two years.

And, in maybe the biggest news of the week, Spotify opens up paid subscription options to all U.S. podcasters.

Joe raves about Patreon Jack Conte's presentation on Adjusting Your Package, and rants on The Verge's coverage of Joe Rogan losing influence. Robert rants about CMO influence and raves about the Val Kilmer Documentary.
