Joe Rogan THREATENS To Quit Spotify!

TheQuartering [3/31/2022]

According to NME:

Joe Rogan has threatened to stop podcasting if he becomes publicly censored to the point at which he has to “walk on eggshells” and mind his “Ps and Qs”.

The host of The Joe Rogan Experience, which is Spotify‘s biggest podcast, said in a recent episode that he’ll pull out of podcasting altogether if he “can’t do it anymore, [where] I have to do it in some sort of weird way”.

If he did abandon it as a career, that would mean dropping out of his reported $200million, three-and-a-half-year exclusivity deal he agreed with Spotify in 2020.

Rogan became embroiled in controversy recently after Neil Young demanded his music be removed from Spotify if the platform wasn’t willing to remove podcast episodes in which Rogan had broadcasted dangerous misinformation over the COVID vaccines.

During a recent episode, Rogan, an ex-mixed martial arts commentator and TV host, got into a conversation with MMA fighter Josh Barnett about the podcast industry.
