Spotify announced this week that Joe Rogan’s enormously successful show, The Joe Rogan Experience, will become a Spotify-exclusive. Combined with a blockbuster spree of other podcast acquisitions over the last year and a half, the company is now set up to become the biggest name in podcasting - and maybe audio overall.

Oh I think Rogan has alienated most of his fans. I don't know many that will get spotify for sellout rogan show. Censorship = Spotify is not why Joes show got popular.

He will come back to PApost after he understands that .5% of his listeners will follow him on Spotify. Just like ninja did with mixer. Now he's back on twitch

It's over for the JRE. No one will make the leap to Spotify. At the end of his contract, it'll be him and a revolving cast of unheard of comedians, averaging sub-300k views per episode.

Some cons I see leasing out your licence: - Spotify not available in all countries - boost in plagiarism to accomodate those countries and people who don’t want to pay. - localised targeted ads to end user - helping create a platform that holds the monopoly, this allows them to send ads to premium users. - susceptible to cancel culture

Does it count as selling out? Isnt he rich and popular enough already? Has he had to promise to not be too controversial or conspiratorial? His opinions always change. Or can he be free and talk about stuff he use to anyway before he got afraid of being deplatformed by youtube so he pretends to switch his beliefs? Someone please explain.

i think spotify is 2 years too late. joe is a joke now. i dont think people are going to go through any type of hoops to listen to rogan become speechless and watch his jaw drop when chris ryan presents us with an absurd absolutely absurd cover to Outkasts 1999 hit “Hey Ya”.... i Also dont think the guests are going to get the clout they immediatly received once joe introduced them. even if they sucked usually joe’s fans would look the individual up and see if that was a bad day and should they maybe look more into the person. i FUCCIN BOUGHT GRAHAM HANCOCKS 2 300020329 PAGE BOOKS ON THE NEOLITHIC ERA AND GLOBLECKI FUCCIN TEPPI. THIS IS THE POWER ROGAN HAD 2 YEARS AGO. i laugh at his guests now.

I've never in my life experienced a targeted ad that aimed to help me achieve my primary life goals. "Targeted" merely means they want to tickle your lizard brain with pink Himalayan salt, because you once watched a podcast by some guy in a yellow robe. Sorry, I don't need pink salt just because I listened to some monk critique Jordan Peterson's Jungian conception of shadow work. Their targeted ad technology should instead try to work out why I care about that conversation in the first place. According to the aforementioned monk-Doshin Hannya Michael Nelson-what actually _helps_ a person do their own shadow work is fewer distractions and _less_ comfort. Put that in my ad feed, Spotify, and I might download your app at some point in this lifetime. There's a lot of fish in the sea these days, and so I shall persevere without Rogan.

Title is pretty misleading, 'bought Joe Rogan’s podcast' IMO implies Spotify now owns the podcast, which isn't true. They bought the rights to air the podcast exclusively for whatever term was agreed upon.

Too bad PApost couldn't (somehow) sweeten up Rogan's cut for his YT presence and content, keeping the video portion of his podcasts, many of which I prefer over audio only, easily accessible here and at no cost. On Spotify? I'm guessing that video content at least from an accessibility standpoint will now come at a cost. Watching vid's on an HDR TV as opposed to other devices, I'm not sure that'll be possible on the Spotify platform. Guess it's a wait-and-see deal.
