In this tidbit, Matt and Mike discuss the recent news that Joe Rogan's JRE (Joe Rogan Experience) podcast will be heading onto Spotify exclusively in just a matter of months. Even though this isn't web dev/design, or small business related - it does affect our medium of podcasting. This also potentially affects the entire structure of podcasting as you used to be able to choose your favourite podcast app and then just listen. Now that we're seeing exclusivity come to light, you may have to have multiple podcast apps just to listen to all your favourite shows. Furthermore, this could affect monetization moving forward as well, where all the podcast apps you have start running premium subscriptions that you will need to subscribe to in order to continue listening. It is important to note that this sort of monetization is not what is happening to JRE, as stated in the announcement the show will remain free on Spotify.
