Why the Brief Talk Podcasts will not be on YouTube Music

Why Our Podcasts Will No Longer Be Available on YouTube Music: A Clear Explanation

In the ever-evolving landscape of digital content creation, the platforms we choose to distribute our podcasts play a crucial role in how our audience engages with us. These choices often reflect a balance between reaching a wide audience and adhering to platform-specific guidelines. With this context in mind, we need to share an important update regarding the availability of our podcasts, particularly in relation to YouTube Music.

As creators who value the diversity and depth of our topics, we occasionally delve into mature themes. Our episodes sometimes include discussions that lead us to provide links to additional resources or content on various platforms, including OnlyFans, Tumblr, and others. These links are provided to offer our listeners a deeper dive into the subjects discussed, ensuring a richer and more informed listening experience.

However, this practice has recently led to a significant change in how our podcasts can be shared. YouTube Music has informed us that linking to sites considered to host sexually explicit content violates their platform guidelines. Following a warning from YouTube Music, it has become clear that including such links in our show notes or descriptions is the primary reason for this contention.

This development has led us to make a difficult but necessary decision: Our podcasts will no longer be available on YouTube Music. This decision wasn’t made lightly. YouTube Music and YouTube are valuable platforms for content distribution, enabling creators to reach thousands of listeners across the globe. Yet, the essence of our show and the integrity of our content cannot be compromised by omitting critical resources and links that we believe are essential to the discussion.

We understand this might be disappointing news for listeners who primarily use YouTube Music to tune into our podcasts. However, the good news is that our content will remain readily available on other popular platforms that many of you already use and love: Apple Podcasts and Spotify. These platforms do not currently impose the same restrictions regarding the links we can include in our show notes, allowing us to continue offering our content without altering its nature or the depth of information provided.

We want to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support and understanding. The decision to not distribute our podcast on YouTube Music is not an end but a new beginning, offering us the freedom to produce content that remains true to our values and meets the expectations of our listeners.

For those who’ve been with us through various platforms and changes, your loyalty and engagement mean the world to us. We’re excited to continue this journey with you on Apple Podcasts and Spotify, where we’ll keep delivering the thought-provoking, unfiltered content you’ve come to expect from us.

Thank you for your understanding and for sticking with us. We’re looking forward to many more episodes together, exploring the depths of topics that matter to you without constraints.

Stay tuned, and as always, thank you for listening.
