The YouTube rival people love to talk about, but how many are actually using it?
This is a well worth it long read. I enjoy using Rumble to watch most of my favorite lefty content. I hope it holds up. Locals is a cluster and not very intuitive. My main concern about @Substack is that they will start curating content and that will lead down that slippery slope to censorship. I hope they stay at least mostly organic and that they don't tip the scales. People want honesty right now. That's why they're coming to Substack. I'm afraid that if Substack succumbs then we'll have zero places to go. Locals is not going to cut it.
Frankly, as an artist, I think it’s best I try Mixcloud. Thanks for this!
Rumble’s UX is horrible—e.g. there’s no way to scrub, and when you try you lose your place.
