Spotify has been involved in a great controversy in recent days, the existence of content without any type of control has given space to podcasts with the theme of conspiracies, anti-vaccines and others that are not exempt from problems. However, the music platform also has high-quality educational and science-themed content, here we recommend some.

Spotify, the new target of the “digital torches”

Thousands of users around the world have ended their subscription to the platform as a form of protest against it after the departure of the famous musician Neil Young. The Canadian, legendary founder of Buffalo Springfield, gave an ultimatum to Spotify to remove Joe Rogan’s podcast, who is critical of the COVID-19 vaccines and the restrictions that are generated for those who decide not to get vaccinated.

The platform was put “against a rock and a hard place”, on the one hand allowing the retirement of an artist with a great career and known for his activism, or canceling The Joe Rogan Experience, an exclusive Spotify podcast for whose exclusivity the platform paid 100 million dollars, as announced in 2020 by The Wall Street Journal. The American company decided to keep the podcast, which generated a negative image among many of its subscribers who began to request the end of their subscriptions.
