Now Hear This: Copyright Issues and OTC Hearing Aids Techstream with Shelly Palmer and Seth Everett

    • Technology

If you have a podcast on Spotify, you might have received an email last week flagging some of your episodes for copyright infringement. This is the result of a new Spotify algorithm that aims to make sure podcast hosts are using only the content they own.

Seven of Seth's 300+ episodes of Hall of Justice were flagged for potential infringement. Shelly and Seth spend time discussing “fair use” (and its misconceptions) and why the rules seem to be arbitrarily applied both within Spotify's ecosystem and from one service to the next.

Then, in other auditory news… you can now buy hearing aids OTC! That's cool enough as it is, but imagine a world augmented with personal assistants who can clue you in on the things around you that you might not otherwise have heard. We talk about the possibilities of this new future - and the hopeful destigmatization of hearing tests.
