Are you serious? Whining about muh Palestinian kids is liberal talking point that is irrelevant to questioning the power of Israel and how it has acted as an enemy against the US consistently.
I don't think ideology can even come into the discussion at this point. The best plan for someone in Joe's position is to simply partner with a platform - ANY platform - that will clearly state what their requirements are and allow them to be agreed to via a legal contract. The days of major content creators operating on the whims of whatever Youtube decides is acceptable at that particular second are over. That's the point where we're at now, you can't be concerned with granular concerns such as losing 10%, 20% or even 50% of your viewerbase or if Spotify has better or worse business practices, because with Youtube it's always a possibility that you'll be algorithmed into oblivion if not outright deleted from their platform because you called the wrong person a faggot or had the wrong guest on your show.Exactly the same thing that happened to "The Last Podcast on the Left". Extremely "punk/anti-establishment" views. Or at least they liked to style themselves like that.
Which is pretty easy when you do a Weird/Paranormal/True Crime podcast from a broom cupboard. Something that got harder when they started making like 50k from patreon.
And even that wasn't enough when spotify came knocking. Their cult-like fanbase acts like it was the best thing ever happening to the podcast. Better not criticise them on their subreddit if you don't want to be called all the buzzwords. But rumors say they had a extreme break in listeners. If a shitty podcast like that get's a "fuck-you-money" offer like that. Imagine what Rogan will make with this move.
It's completely understandable from a business perspective. But extremely weird from an ideological one.
