Spotify Preparing To Acquire Podcasting Network the Ringer — Report

In the wake of analysts from both and giving Spotify an underperform rating, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the company is in early talks to acquire a podcasting network called the Ringer.

With many in the industry projecting that podcasting will become the next big thing in streaming, Spotify has increasingly been putting resources into it. Their interest in the Ringer, which offers both sports and pop-culture programming, is the latest move in these efforts.

Founded in 2016 by former ESPN commentator Bill Simmons, the Ringer has been steadily growing its slate of podcasts. Reportedly, the company’s shows receive more than 100 million downloads monthly. In 2018, they further generated more than $15 million in revenue, and according to the Wall Street Journal, they are already profitable.

If Spotify does in fact buy the Ringer, it will not be the first time that the two companies have worked together.

They also cooperated on a podcast that was hosted by Simmons himself. Entitled The Hottest Take, the show has been available exclusively on Spotify.

As the acquisition talks are still in the early stage, there are scant details at the moment about how the Ringer would function post-acquisition. For example, it is not known whether the company’s existing podcasts would at once become exclusive to Spotify or if the acquisition would only affect future podcasts.

Either way, Spotify’s competitors in the market, such as Apple, can only be concerned with deals like this. It may even drive them to make their own acquisitions, which could lead to a frenzy of new investment in podcasting.

Just last year, Spotify spent more than $400 million to purchase a trio of podcast companies.

It should be noted, though, that the report also indicated that a deal between Spotify and the Ringer is not imminent and that talks “may not result in a deal.”

Aaron Hernandez has been back in the news as late thanks to the latest Netflix documentary centered around his life titled Killer Inside: The Mind Of Aaron Hernandez. The documentary does a deep dive into his background and some the people he used to associate with. Of course, one those people was his fiancée Shayanna Jenkins. Jenkins was Hernandez’s ride or die while he was going through his murder trial. Jenkins did not participate in the documentary but she was certainly talked about a lot.

Jenkins has been through a lot emotional distress over the years and recently, she took to Instagram where she issued a message to all the people who have reached out to her over the last few days. Jenkins also stated that she plans to take a break from social media.

“I wanted to let all you sweet, sweet souls know I have to tried to read every message sent on IG and through email (positive and negative)…The amount support and positive energy is again unreal! I’m sure you will understand how imperative it is to take some time away from social media,” Jenkins wrote.

UFC’s Dana White Reveals Plans For Conor McGregor’s Next Opponent

UFC’s cash cow Conor McGregor is back in the mix following his impressive return to the octagon at UFC 246 this past weekend, where he defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in under a minute. Even before McGregor’s TKO victory fight fans were giddy with excitement over who his next opponent could be, and the speculation has ramped up even more following the dominant performance. 

However, according to UFC President Dana White, there is only one option: Khabib Nurmagomedov. 

UFC's Dana White Reveals Plans For Conor McGregor's Next Opponent

Although fans would love a Conor McGregor vs Jorge Masvidal ‘BMF’ title fight or the trilogy with Nate Diaz, White says the Khabib rematch is the right fight to make. As we know, their first clash at UFC 229 in October 2018 ended with a massive melee and some lengthy suspensions after Khabib submitted the Irish superstar.

Their feud has died down considerably since then, but there’s no doubt that both sides would pick up right where they left f.

“We’re looking at Hagler-Hearns,” White said, per ESPN. “We’re looking at like Ali-Foreman, Ali-Frazier. This is a massive fight with global appeal. It’s the fight you make, it’s the fight that makes sense. It’s for the 155-pound title.

“If Conor and Masvidal fight, neither one them even has a title. Although Conor does want his BMF title. He doesn’t have a world championship. So Khabib is the fight to make. It’s huge for Khabib’s legacy, too. If he beat Conor McGregor, then he beats Tony Ferguson, then he beats Conor McGregor again, I mean this is how this kid, when he retires, he’s 30-something-and-oh and he’s beaten all the best.”

Of course, this is assuming the undefeated Lightweight champion retains his title against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 on April 18. Should that be the case, White believes the McGregor-Khabib rematch could set a UFC record for most pay-per-view buys, and even rival the McGregor-Mayweather boxing match in terms prit. 

David Lynch Interrogates A Monkey In Netflix Premiere “What Did Jack Do?”

David Lynch is known for popular series such as Twin Peaks, DumbLand, Hotel Room and more and now – completely out nowhere – the famed filmmaker has dropped f a short, 17-minute film on Netflix called What Did Jack Do?  The movie has arrived on what marks David’s 74th birthday and the synopsis that accompanies the short is simple and to the point: “In a locked-down train station, a homicide detective conducts an interview with a tormented monkey.”

The movie sees David as he interrogates a small, suited monkey about a murder. The duo is seated in a small window-less room and has an unexpected amount humour to balance out the questionable investigation. The monkey – who can talk – is accredited as Jack Cruz but it’s unclear who really voices the little actor. Many have assumed that this project is the first a fruitful partnership with David and Netflix and BMD reports that the movie isn’t new at all, since it premiered in Paris in 2017. 

We can’t confirm if more projects such as this latest short are on the way but for now, fans should stream the fering and let us know what they think. 

‘Bad Boys for Life’ Opens at No. 1

Bad Boys dominate the box office.

The third installment in Will Smith and Matin Lawrence’s blockbuster franchise opened at No. 1 with an estimated $68.1 million over the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, including $59.2 million for the first three days. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it marks the second-best opening for the MLK holiday period, and Sony’s biggest R-rated debut.

Bad Boys for Life, which garnered positive reviews, was also a hit overseas, where it earned $107.3 million globally from 39 markets. The R-rated film, directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, cost $90 million to produce before marketing expenses. It could gross over $160 million domestically by the end of its run.

The action-comedy arrives 17 years after 2003’s Bad Boys II, which amassed $273 million at the global box office. The 1995 original grossed $141 million worldwide.

The blockbuster pic has also inspired a star-studded soundtrack. Executive produced by DJ Khaled, the 10-track collection includes contributions from Meek Mill, City Girls, Jaden Smith, Rick Ross, and Bryson Tiller.

A fourth installment is already in the works. Smith and Lawrence are expected to return, while Chris Bremner—who worked on Bad Boys for Life—has been tapped to write the script.

Ruby Rose’s "Batwoman" Reveals Sexual Orientation To Gotham City

Gender and uality are two topics that have been discussed quite a bit over the last few years. The LGBTQ+ community has seen a lot more visibility over the last little while which has led to more inclusion in the media, particularly TV shows and movies. One the examples this is CW’s brand new series, “Batwoman.” The title character, otherwise known as Kate Kane, is played by actress Ruby Rose who has been quite open in the past about her uality. 

On the latest episode the series, Kane comes out to Gotham City as gay. This revelation comes as quite the risk because the more she tells about herself, the more likely it is people will figure out she is “Batwoman.” It’s important to note that Kane made this decision after seeing another character struggle to come out to their parents.

Kara Danvers players Supergirl who is the one who ends up writing the article about Kane’s uality. Perhaps the most significant part this revelation is the fact that “Batwoman” is now the first openly gay title character in a superhero series. This is a huge step for LGBTQ+ visibility and with “Batwoman” leading the way, we could see other series take this route in the future.

Steph Curry’s Targeted Return Date Revealed

Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry is reportedly plotting his return to the court just after the NBA’s All Star break, despite the fact the team’s playf odds are bleak. According to The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson II, Curry is targeting Golden State’s March 1st home game against the Washington Wizards for his return to action.

The two-time MVP appeared in just four games this season before suffering a broken left hand. There were rumors that Curry would opt to sit out the remainder the year as the Warriors’ season continued to slip away, but it no longer looks like that will be the case. 

Curry, who underwent a second surgery on his broken hand on November 1st, just recently returned to practice. 

“Rehab is going great, every day is tough,” Curry said Saturday during Golden State’s victory over Orlando. “When you’re hurt, and we’ve all been there in some way shape or form, its a grind, every day kind being monotonous with the little strength workouts you have to do, and you understanding that it takes time and patience to get back to 100 percent.”

The Warriors currently hold the worst record in the NBA at 10-34. For those scoring at home, that puts them 11 games back the Memphis Grizzlies for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Up next for the Curry-less Warriors is a Monday night road game in Portland, which will air on TNT at 10pm ET.

Shaq Admits The Four Players He Was Scared To Play Against

NBA Hall Famer Shaquille O’Neal, arguably the most dominant player in NBA history, was feared by many during his illustrious basketball career – but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t shook when he had to go up against some the game’s greatest players.

Shaq Admits The Four Players He Was Scared To Play Against

Jonathan Daniel 

Says Shaq, “Since the statute limitations is up – I was terrified out there.” When asked how long the terror going up against MJ lasted, Shaq told his co-hosts, “The whole game.”

“For one, he’s the greatest player. Two, I was worried about him dunking on me and having to go back and face the fellas. And then three, he was just so hot. Like, the stuff that I saw when I was in college on tv, it’s like really real. I was terrified.”

In addition to his fear playing against Jordan, Shaq admitted to being scared fellow Hall Famers Patrick Ewing, David Robinson and Charles Barkley. But not Houston Rockets’ legend Hakeem Olajuwon because, “Olajuwon wasn’t really mean. He was nice but he wasn’t mean. Barkley was mean.”

Richard Sherman Decimates Darelle Revis Over Twitter Slander

Richard Sherman is one the best cornerbacks in the entire NFL and is known for being able to get big interceptions when it matters. Last night was no exception as his San Francisco 49ers defeated the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. Sherman finished the game with an interception that sealed his team’s fate. Now, Sherman will be headed to his third Super Bowl and his first with the 49ers.

After the game, retired cornerback Darelle Revis took to Twitter where he talked about Sherman and how he’s not the best pound-for-pound corner out there. Revis questioned Sherman’s abilities when it comes to man-to-man coverage which was something Sherman didn’t appreciate. Sherman is a very active Twitter user and immediately saw Revis’ tweets. That’s when Sherman clapped back with a retort his own, calling into question Revis’ credentials.

Revis was one the best cornerbacks in the game during his prime although Sherman is correct in saying he didn’t have much playf success. Sherman is a hard guy to talk trash to because he always holds his own. 49ers fans were quick to defend Sherman while other NFL fans thought Revis made some interesting points. Regardless, Sherman is f to the big game and at this point, that’s all he should really care about.

Who do you think is right in this situation? Let us know in the comments below.
