Spotify quietly deleting Joe Rogan episodes amid latest controversy – MMA Root

Is Joe Rogan being censored?

In the six months that the UFC color commentator has been posting podcasts for Spotify, he has already said goodbye to 42 past episodes, with guests like Chris D’Elia, Owen Benjamin, Joey Diaz, Gavin McInnes and even Eddie Bravo.

That’s according to Digital Music News.

“There were some episodes that they didn’t want on their platform, and I was like ‘okay, I don’t care,’ Rogan said in a recent episode. “But other than that, in terms of what I’m going to do in the future, the big test was having Alex Jones. A lot of people say, ‘They are telling Joe Rogan what he can and cannot do.’ They are not, they are not. “

One of the attractions of Rogan’s podcast has been the diversity of her guests, although not everyone was delighted with the first one. Fear factor host for giving controversial figures like Milo Yiannopoulos and the aforementioned Jones a place to speak.

It is not that Rogan needs guests to cause outrage.

Select Spotify employees have complained about “transphobic” content from Rogan, who has also drawn the ire of transgender fighter Fallon Fox in recent weeks. It is not surprising that Rogan has downplayed the backlash, simply stating that her critics were “wrong.”

Something tells me that we haven’t heard the last of this story.
