    Podcast hosting company Podiant has unveiled its manifesto and core values - openly shunning far-right rhetoric from its platform. "Saying that 'we welcome all viewpoints' is fine if you’re not interested in what your customers make or do with your product, but that’s not how I see Podiant’s place," says founder Mark Steadman. We think this policy invites a direct comparison with some podcast hosts, who hide behind "free speech" to happily take money from racists and bigots to facilitate their arguments.
