Joe Rogan admits censorship by Spotify

As part of the $100m deal to be a 100% Spotify guy, Rogan agreed to have the streaming platform not republish some early episodes, including interviews with Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, and Alex Jones.

Rogan later did a new interview with Jones on Spotify, but the old eps remain unavailable.

Rogan also gave a public apology in regards to correcting false information about left-wing anarchists setting fires in Oregon, which many believe was also part of the Spotify deal.

The JRE host said that when Spotify didn’t want a few episodes on their platform, he was like, “Okay, I don’t care,” and that there won’t be any further editorial control over what he does.
