Spotify, Rogan & Sexual Freedom w/ Sunny Megatron – Ep 182 American Sex Podcast

What does the Joe Rogan/Spotify controversy have to do with the freaky things you do in the bedroom?

Surprisingly, A LOT!

This situation uncovered bigger issues regarding corporate control of information & influence over censorship. In 2022 posting about sexual health, LGBTQIA+ activism, or thirst traps online is risky due to SESTA FOSTA, bank restrictions, and impending legislation like Earn It. Discussions about structural inequity and/or content made by marginalized creators are suppressed by biased algorithms.

Indie podcasts & audio apps are among the last least censored mediums and a central hub for these kinds of discussions. How could one corporation’s aggressive ambition to dominate audio entertainment threaten that & more? How did Spotify become the largest podcast platform & what’s next? This episode is a wild ride taking you from Joe Rogansville all the way to your sexual freedom. 

Guest Bio – Sunny Megatron

Sunny Megatron is an award-winning Kink & Certified Sexuality Educator, Certified Relationship Coach, and media personality.

Known for her one-of-a-kind build-your-own-adventure approach to sex, kink & relationships, Sunny coined the BDSM community catch-phrase, Kink is Customizable™.
