Is Joe Rogan happy with the Spotify deal?
Rogan is popular because everyone feels comfortable enough for long conversations about everything
That's what everyone is wondering now after rumors swirl that Spotify employees are allegedly complaining that Rogan is Rogan and saying what he has on his mind.
It is supposedly trans, lesbian and gay people within the company who complain about several episodes and guests, with extra focus on the conversation with Abigail Shrier who is behind the book "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters".
Joe Rogan is the podcast king precisely because he wants to talk to everyone, about everything, not because a multinational company has come up with a marketing strategy.
Abigail Shrier Episodes:
I'm supposed to say no, for now
Now, however, it may look like Rogan is already having problems with his new business partner, while Spotify founder and CEO Daniel Ek apparently does not want to change Rogan's winning form.
I hardly have the opportunity to do that anyway, as the Swedish streaming service only licenses the content: in other words, they have no power to engage in editorial manipulation of the content that is produced, but they can stop licensing episodes they do not want in the catalog.

Vice believes Spotify has already dropped the Vice founder
We have previously mentioned Alex Jones (episodes # 911 and # 1255) who recently stated that Spotify is not trying to censor, but that the clips with him and a number of other people on the right, as well as people who are not very political, are not there due to something technical.
Vice writes in his article about Rogan that Jones and Gavin McInnes (who helped start Vice) "have already been removed from Spotify".
