Seriously, Americans don't want China censorship on free speech.it is as simple as that. Does not mean we are kicked off but yes, censoring, shadow banning, crap like that is against free speech, which is something they all said they were for. Facebootoot & Twatter lied and said they were a place for free speech and then lied. At least tell the truth, guys.

I think saying audio dramas aren't podcasts is incorrect. more say that there are genres and sub genres of podcasts it's like saying that sci-fi novels aren't books
