I'm also sure the people behind STOP have read this thread and are aware of your disappointment. However, what they choose to talk about in future podcasts remains up to them.
No, you don't have any control over what they do, but you should attempt to exercise some, anyway.

If you do nothing, the appearance is that you approve of what they did, since it occurred in the same broadcast as an interview with a Cryptic representative. As a marketer, you already know this. It may not legally appear that you endorse their actions, but the social impact is what you should be considering.


Imagine an interview with Chef Gordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver where, after the segment is over, the host goes on to say: "And now we discuss the benefits of cannibalism."

Ramsay / Oliver would not have actively endorsed the cannibalism, but if he says nothing, it appears that he does.

I disagree. Your assertion is like saying anyone that goes on Bill O'Reilly's show endorses anything he says after they're off the air.

However, we removed the link to the podcast and contacted the folks at STOP to let them know of our and your disapproval.
