But while many of the major podcast platforms do commission programs, much of their content is essentially created by any third party with a mic — and potentially goes unscrutinized. Spotify removed four podcasts that promoted the QAnon conspiracy in October after a report from Media Matters, but it’s still possible to find shows that deliver QAnon content to listeners on the app, as well as on Apple and Google Podcasts.”
