Everyone's getting their podcast lawsuits before the year ends

People are really getting their podcast suits on before the New Year. Let's do it.

The Daily Beast reports that Fox News host Laura Ingraham has filed a lawsuit against Quake Media, claiming the podcast startup has not paid her under her $800,000 contract through 2022.
Investment firm VGC Partners is suing Sean Glynn, the former CEO of British podcast studio Novel. The lawsuit claims that Glynn did not disclose that the other co-founders intended to leave, and that the company's revenue figures were inflated.

My father-in-law, responding to yesterday's newsletter on the New York lawsuit against SiriusXM, said he too has had to take drastic measures to get rid of his subscription. “When I called the third time to cancel, I told them I was going to a small village in France where they had no Wi-Fi, but I would stop by when the village had Wi-Fi. Will definitely subscribe again!! Unbelievable,” he wrote. Yes, on the Friday before Christmas, this qualifies as news.

France has introduced a new law that would require music streamers to pay 1.2 percent of their domestic revenue to support local music. Spotify's music leadership in France and the Benelux region have protested the move and announced in Switzerland on Wednesday that the company would withdraw its sponsorship of two French music festivals.

PodcastOne Was I in a Cult? Have signed. For an exclusive sales and distribution deal. The company says the show has received 9 million downloads since its launch in 2021.

Who Scuffed the Floor at My Wedding?, a silly incident from two and a half years ago, tops the charts. After going viral this summer, it is currently ranked second on Spotify and seventh on Apple Podcasts. A true podcasting miracle, Merry Christmas to us all.
