I am taking this podcast off Spotify

Hi everyone, it’s Laura. I wanted to let you all know that because of Spotify’s new terms of service, I have decided to no longer have my podcast on their platform. If I did they would have the right to transcribe or translate my stories, without even giving me the option to object if they get it wrong. It means they could change my stories without my input. That’s absolutely unacceptable for a distribution platform. I can’t accept these new terms, so I have to take the podcast off Spotify entirely.

I know a lot of you use Spotify, and I’m sorry to have to do this, but I don’t see another solution. You will still be able to listen to my podcast on other podcast apps and you can always find every transcript and a streaming button on laurasimons.com. I’m currently working on editing some longer fantasy stories to upload and I have a wonderful fairy tale about a chivalrous knight in the works, so I really hope you’ll stick around for those.

The new terms go into effect on the 15th of March 2024. So I will be taking my podcast off Spotify in about a week: between the 9th and 11th of March. If you have any questions, you can always email me at laurasimons.author@gmail.com or send me a message on my tumblr: laurasimonsdaughter.

I hope you’ll all be there when I have another tale to tell some other day. But until then:

Don’t let anyone steal your words, and be safe.
