@aru I wonder why they would go exclusively on Spotify 😕

@carbontwelve Spotify is probably paying them for exclusivity so they can drive engagement on their app. Investigative journalism takes significant time and resources, so I don't begrudge them this, but it's hostile to listeners, IMHO.

@aru it certainly is hostile to listeners, any kind of platform lock-in is 😑

@carbontwelve I bet they also get higher fidelity information on their listeners since you need an account to listen, as well as better telemetry since you are required to use the Spotify app.
