Longtime reader, first-time commenter — big fan of your writing! Agree the Rogan/Spotify situation is definitely tricky for everyone, especially when you just invested $100M. While it's far from ideal, personally think Spotify has achieved "too big to fail" status. For at least right now, don't think there is really an alternative offering (Apple Music is subpar IMO) until some possible web3/decentralization effort comes about.

Also appreciate the redirection to Brian's post! There are times when I have felt as his previous perspectives have been almost too impersonal but know it's impossible to make everyone happy and smart of him to lay a groundwork for tackling these highly nuanced issues proactively vs reactively.
