Andy Ngo says podcast is banned from SoundCloud


Writer Andy Ngo announced Monday that SoundCloud has permanently banned its podcast from their platform.

Ngo, who is also editor of The Post Millennial, revealed this weekend that music and audio platform SoundCloud had banned his podcast for “violating” the site’s terms of service. The reporter first provided details of the ban on his Twitter account.

“@SoundCloud permanently banned me and my @YouShouldNgo podcast. In an email it said I violated their community guidelines without naming the offending content. Guests included @RubinReport, @DouglasKMurray & @jordanbpeterson. cc @SCsupport “Ngo tweeted.

Based on Ngo’s account, SoundCloud sent an email claiming that their podcast “Things You Should Ngo” “has been permanently deleted on the grounds that it was dedicated to violating our terms of service and guidelines. from the community”.

The terms and conditions included: use of the platform “to download, publish, store, transmit, display, copy, distribute, promote, make available or otherwise communicate to the public: any Abusive, libelous, defamatory, pornographic Content or obscene, which promotes or incites violence, terrorism, illegal acts or hatred on the grounds of race, ethnicity, cultural identity, religious belief, disability, sex, sexual identity or orientation, or is otherwise objectionable in SoundCloud’s reasonable discretion “

The email also explained that once an account violates these terms, all accounts, leads, and subscribers are prohibited from returning to the site. He did not provide an exact example of when Ngo violated these terms in his podcast.

When contacted for comment, Ngo told Fox News, “The long list of violations that Sound Cloud accuses me of having violated includes incitement to violence. How can a legitimate business accuse a client of such egregious crimes without even pointing the finger at the offending content or giving me the opportunity to request more information? My podcast included interviews with professors and public figures like Ben Shapiro and Dave Rubin.

Fox News has contacted SoundCloud but they have yet to respond. The company has yet to publicly acknowledge having banned Ngo from its platform.

In an email provided by Ngo, SoundCloud also overlooked a chance to appeal for the permanent ban, apparently assuring that Ngo cannot challenge the decision.

“Big Tech is neither non-partisan nor neutral. But at least paying customers like me on Sound Cloud should know exactly what content they’ve uploaded that is so blatant it deserves permanent suspension,” Ngo replied. “I wonder what they might find so objectionable about talking to professors and mainstream figures.”

Ngo’s latest podcast premiered in March 2020 and featured Imam Tawhidi discussing the parallels between violent Islamic extremists and members of Antifa. His previous podcasts are still available on YouTube.
