It's just so freaking easy. Every Monday, 30 brand new songs curated based on your past listening habits. Does a great job of integrating core genres & new interests!
Pavan Sethi- building things.
Discover Weekly is awesome! Some tips: 1) As you can imagine, the more you listen to Spotify, the better. 2) If you don't want what you're listening to at the moment have an effect on your recommendations, turn on 'Private Mode' (like if you're listening to background music to concentrate).

Listener Support by Anchor

Now you can get paid to podcast 🎙️

Starting today, any podcaster, regardless of audience size or experience level, can collect recurring monthly payments directly from their listeners. There’s never been an easier way to start generating revenue from your podcast.

The Verge
Anchor's app makes it really easy to throw together a podcast. But if you keep doing that and manage to build an audience, there hasn't been an easy way to get paid for it. Now Anchor is launching an option: a feature called Listener Support that allows listeners to pledge $1, $5, or $10 per month to specific podcasts.
Macstories
As an app and service, Anchor is a compelling product that I'm personally a big fan of. It's the best way to podcast from an iPad, the most mature and accessible platform for new podcasters, and it includes innovative features like transcribed video generation for sharing clips on social media.
Engadget
Anchor, the audio broadcast-turned-podcasting platform, has launched a new Listener Support feature that lets podcasters collect money from their fans for their efforts. Creators of any size or experience level can add a Listener Support button to their public Anchor profile, which followers can click to make a regular monthly donation of $0.99, $4.99 or $9.… See more
9to5Mac
Anchor is an all-in-one platform that simplifies podcast production and distribution, and its latest new feature wants to help hosts tackle monetization. Podcasts are often funded by sponsorships or listener contributions through separate platforms, but Anchor wants to make direct contributions part of their platform.
VentureBeat
Podcasting platform Anchor has announced its first moves into monetization by allowing listeners to pay their favorite podcasters through a monthly subscription. The news comes six months after Anchor introduced a major overhaul, shifting from a short-form social audio platform to a full-fledged podcasting powerhouse. However, the Anchor reboot notably lacke… See more
TechCrunch
Anchor's been gaining a fair bit of steam lately with its dead simple mobile podcast editing app. The New York startup has also been branching out in some interesting ways, including the recent launch of a Manhattan-based studio designed to give podcasters access to far better equipment than the us...

Flattr 2.0

An automatic, effortless way to get support for your content

Flattr is an automatic, effortless way for creators to make money from their online content, and for fans to give back to the creators they love. Creators can spend more time creating and their audience rewards them every time they visit their site, based on an intelligent browser extension, and a privacy-friendly algorithm.

The Next Web
Flattr, the micropayments service launched by Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde and acquired in April by AdBlock Plus owner Eyeo, has been relaunched, and now lets users pay content creators automatically, without any manual involvement. The first incarnation of Flattr was genius, but it was flawed.
ZDNet
Eyeo, the German firm infuriating publishers with its hugely popular Adblock Plus tool, will try to win over those same publishers with today's relaunch of Flattr, the micropayments service it acquired earlier this year. Flattr was founded in 2010 by Peter Sunde, who also co-founded The Pirate Bay, and Linus Olsson.
Flattr
We're incredibly pleased to announce that after a lot of hard work, Flattr 2.0 launches publicly today.

Fans pay you a subscription amount of their choice in exchange for exclusive experiences & behind-the-scenes content.

Predictable income from your patrons means you can create on your terms. No strings attached.

Forbes
Musicians used to be able to rely on record sales to keep them in business, but in the past decade or so those numbers have dropped off a cliff. Consequently, a number of different revenue streams have suddenly taken on new significance.
TechCrunch
In an era where art is shared and streamed for free, Patreon offers new hope for turning content creation into a career. Illustrators, comedians, game makers, and musicians use Patreon to let fans pay a monthly subscription fee for special access to their work. In exchange, Patreon takes only a tin...
