Can we talk about #spotify buying #gimlet? Honestly this was long ago planned (if you listen to Startup), but can't help feeling really sad...

I have especially cherished Reply All, and I cringe to think of great podcasts locked behind Spotify's internet walls. ffs, good podcast app is like rss... it just works and you get to listen to things you care about. No fuckery

I fear this 200+ million dollar deal is gonna change a lot about this environment - and not for the better



@slackz I dislike Spotify enough that I will give up listening to gimlet media if Spotify becomes the only way to do so. there are other podcasts out there that will fill the niche.

@tekniklr same. I'm not fuckin with spotify again. I dropped it for good reasons
