Spotify Continues To Delete "Joe Rogan Experience" Episodes
The Joe Rogan Experience is easily one of the most popular podcasts out there, and last year, Rogan signed a 100-million dollar multi-year exclusive licensing deal with streaming giant Spotify. It didn’t take long before Rogan’s podcast, which has housed a fair number of controversial guests over the years, was ruffling the feathers of certain Spotify employees.
Rogan was warned that Spotify would not be including certain episodes on their platform — “There were a few episodes they didn’t want on their platform, and I was like ‘OK, I don’t care,’” said Rogan, in a March episode of his podcast with guest Fahim Anwar. Now, a new report has indicated that Spotify has continued to delete several existing Joe Rogan Experience episodes, with most recent deletions including episode #411 with Bulletproof Coffee founder Dave Asprey, who styles himself “the father of biohacking.”
