Joe Rogan recently signed an exclusivity deal worth $100M with Spotify which goes into effect sometime after September 2020. Is this a trend towards the end of podcasts being a free and open platform? Is this moving more towards how televisions shows have functioned with networks since the start? Are listeners going to suffer or benefit from deals like this? Jack and Paul debate the pros & cons… two enter the cage, one leaves (sorry, we had to make a bad MMA joke).
What is Above Board?
Can you make money and hold true to your values? Can you keep a profitable business “above board”?
Jack Ellis and Paul Jarvis (co-founders) explore running an ethical and privacy-focused company. They’re also sharing an inside look at what it takes to create and sell their privacy-focused product without any outside funding or capital.
Every few weeks, they publish a lively and honest debate about all things not simply "black and white" when trying to do the right thing for profit, people and the planet.
