Toasting the end of The Toast —

Spotify and labels Brian Anderson : Making It Up 4


MAEKAN It Up #004 continues despite timezone differences to tackle four topics inspired by our twice-a-week newsletter, the Briefing. This week we discuss Spotify’s relationship with major music labels and how it influences their playlists, Brian Anderson coming out and representations of sexuality in sport, the community formed around The Toast, and how net neutrality loses an outspoken advocate with Tumblr’s CEO, David Karp.


MAEKAN It Up features Editor-in-Chief Eugene Kan, and MAEKAN Community Manager and Designer Charis Poon. The podcast uses our twice-a-week MAEKAN Briefings as a starting point from which we dig deeper into the meaning and impact of changes happening within creative culture.


As an added element, each week, Eugene and Charis will contribute on-the-spot illustrations of the topics heard over the course of the podcast
