Over the last 7 years, [[Spotify]] has earned me 4.3% of what [[Bandcamp]] has. Over the last 3 months it's 1.6%. Getting playlisted by the Spotify lords and heard by 50,000 people is worth as much as ~20 people deciding to pay a fiver for a release on Bandcamp.

And… @spotify announces it's killing another open podcast, and turning it into proprietary Spotify audio that you can only listen to on Spotify's awful player. I was a huge supporter of @Gimletmedia and it's disappointing to see Spotify systematically lock up its podcasts.
