The Challenges With Music Streaming

The New York Times’ Popcast show recently hosted a comprehensive discussion about the current state of music streaming, with a focus on the industry’s current leader, Spotify.

Although streaming has become one of the main sources of music consumption and distribution, it still faces challenges.

In the hour-long conversation, Popcast host Jon Caramanica is joined by three music journalists to discuss the obstacles that artists and fans have encountered on Spotify: from low royalty payouts and preferential treatment of major labels to a limited catalog and lack of discovery.
