Substock creates a pitch for your podcasts

Happy Tuesday to all. I had to pause working on today’s Wordle to finish this newsletter. My stats are fully integrated when solving in guesses 3, 4 and 5, so I take this seriously in the hopes of pushing things in the right direction. I got three yellows and one green, I have to guess three more so I wish myself luck.

Now, we come to the part where we talk about the middle ground.


Substock of podcasts

This is not just a newsletter site – Substack wants you all to know that this is a podcasting site. Or at least, it should be thought so.

The company announced this morning that three Patrian-hit podcasts will be on board to join the substock: Fifth columnMore than 4,100 subscribers pay a minimum of $ 5 per month; American Prestige, Which has over 2,200 subscribers, with a minimum of $ 3 per month; And Touching, Which is at least $ 1 a month with about 300 subscribers. I think Substock offered a prepaid contract to the creators to value the risk, as it does to the substantial audience, and many other writers and comics artists, to change those first two sites. (Substock declined to tell me if they were getting the deal.) The company released a couple of blog posts today that explain why you should consider it your next podcasting site.

However, for now, I still do not see the best reason to choose the podcaster substock Patron as a platform for creating a community. Both sites allow for almost the same thing – creators can put written updates, podcasts, videos and more behind the scenes – but Patron allows creators to do more flexibly. Patron takes the lowest tariff reduction (8 percent of its standard plan, 10 percent of the substock), and allows Patron creators to offer different subscription layers, while the substock only allows a fixed price.

Substock support has one more big advantage: if you get tired of the operating system, you can opt out of your subscribers’ email addresses and payment information. But if you are an upcoming podcast, are you going to choose your site based on your future preferences? Leave Is it?

Spotify CEO should sit down for the deposit, thanks to Eminem

The judge last week ordered that Daniel Ek set aside time to chat with lawyers about Spotify’s music licensing practices. Reported by advertisement boardSpotify has filed a lawsuit against Eminem Aid Mile Style for allegedly failing to pay mechanical licenses – compulsory songwriters to recreate their work – on his songs.

Spotify argued that the lawsuit did not require Ek, as it was not directly involved in “Spotify’s day-to-day licensing procedures”.[cause] Irritated by him, [result] Inconvenient for him and Spotify, and [subject] Unnecessary burden on him and the company. “The judge said, good, bad.

“Undoubtedly Mr. Eck has a full schedule,” the judge wrote. But, “However, the issue of proper licensing relationships with artists covering Spotify’s business and its sole product is certainly of paramount importance to Spotify, which deserves some time and attention from Mr. Ek.”

The trial is scheduled for September 2023. There is no time yet for Eckin’s deposit.

Today, explained Sounded on the radio yesterday

Vox.com’s premier podcast, Today, explained, Expanding into radio. As of Monday, the show, in partnership with WNYC Studios, aired on 13 public networks on dozens of stations. Vox “Not everyone is a podcast listener (yet), and we want to reach as wide an audience as possible,” he writes, expanding his show to broadcasts. (Big revelation about this: Vox is a part of Vox Media On the edge And Hot pot.)

Barcost threatens to strike

Members of the Parcast union told Spotify on Monday that they were ready to strike if a deal could not be reached in the “final days” of negotiations. The union claims 96 percent of its members Signed the pledge Should support the strike if necessary. The two sides are still at odds over diversity, minimum wage and IP rights. Bloomberg. (Here’s another revelation: Barcost Union organizes Writers Guild of America, with East; The Vox Media Union, of which I am a member, is organized with WGAE.)

Spotify reached a three-year agreement with Gimlet Union and Ringer Union in April 2021. Gimlet employees announced the union plan in March 2019, a month after the acquisition of Spotify, and Ringer employees were already involved in union work. Acquired. By these standards Barcost’s negotiations did not last particularly long, but some very important and important topics will be discussed in the last days of bargaining. This threat does not mean that Barcost will definitely strike, but it is also one of the many pressure tactics the union could put in place as it works towards a better deal for members in these delayed game discussions.


That’s all for today. I will get more for Insider members on Thursdays and Fridays.
