Twitter is great for finding like-minded people, and sure enough a quick search for “bloomberg podcast” yields other listeners also affected by this change:
- artlung: Bloomberg On the Economy with Tom Keene went to paid subscription only on their podcast. Disappointing.
- brentaustin: Very disappointed to see that the Bloomberg on the Economy podcast has gone subscription only. It was one of my favorite finance/econ pdcsts
- justgregit: really upset that bloomberg on the economy podcast now costs $100. I’m going to cry. @tomkeene_
- jackoatmon: Awwwwww maaaannnn. Bloomberg started charging for the Tom Keene podcast. Blast!
- alyshabrady: Payment required for the Bloomberg on the Economy podcast? Despicable.
I understand Bloomberg has to make money. I’m disappointed especially because there was no warning. Just all of a sudden the podcast was not the whole podcast. They did run ads, but I guess those didn’t make enough money to sustain the thing.
