Episode 64: Going Rogan

Grumpy Old Bens Logo

When the Joe Rogan Experience goes exclusively to Spotify, Joe Rogan will no longer be a podcaster, according to Ryan. We discuss how this move will effect podcasting along with Scott Adams move away from YouTube. The playing field is changing, but is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Washing State fell for a Nigerian scam attack on their unemployment system. Way to go, Washington! John Krasinski probably made more on selling off his short-lived “Some Good News” YouTube channel than most of us will ever make. Twitter will now allow people to prevent replies on their Tweets and a whole lot more.
