Roxane Gay, the host of ‘The Roxane Gay Agenda’ podcast, recently pulled her show from Spotify amid a growing number of celebrity departures from the audio streaming platform.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the podcast – which premiered in late January – is not available on Spotify but can still be streamed on Apple Podcasts or the Luminary app.
“This won’t move any kind of needle, but I deleted my podcast from Spotify,” the “Bad Feminist” author tweeted.
She added, “That’s all there is to it. Onward.”
Roxane’s departure comes after India Arie, a musician and podcaster said she would remove her “SongVersation” podcast from Spotify in protest at Joe Rogan’s comments on his podcast that it would be “weird” to call the Black people “black” unless they are “100% African, from the darkest place, where they don’t wear any clothes all day.”
As for other podcasters, Brene Brown, who has two exclusive podcasts with Spotify, announced last week that she would be pausing the release of all future episodes of “Unlocking Us” and “Dare to Lead.”
In a post on his personal website, Brown explained his decision and called on Spotify to ‘have a transparent (publicly available) misinformation policy that balances addressing the complex misinformation issues we face today’ today while respecting the freedom of expression” which has been applied. through the platform.
Recently, many musicians have also had their songs removed from Spotify in protest against Rogan content. Graham Nash, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell are among those celebrities.
