Fans of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast were mostly thrilled when the stand-up comedian and UFC announcer announced his move to Spotify, believing that this change would allow Rogan to have more creative freedom than he did previously.
However, this does not appear to be the case as Spotify has banned controversial and popular episodes now that the platform controls the podcast.
The Spotify channel for the Joe Rogan Experience does not host episodes featuring conspiracy icon Alex Jones and Bitcoin enthusiast David Seaman. Other right-wing figures interviewed by Rogan over the years – including Gavin McInnes, Stefan Molyneux, Milo Yiannopoulos, Charles C. Johnson, Owen Benjamin and Sargon of Akkad – have been scrubbed by Spotify as well.
Other episodes, such as one with comedy icon and marijuana enthusiast Tommy Chong, were removed by Spotify for unspecified reasons as well. This is not a good sign for those who were hoping that Rogan would be liberated from tech censorship with his new deal.
Mikhaila Peterson, daughter of pro-Western philosopher Jordan Peterson, made note of the crackdown in a Twitter post:
This is straight up censorship. This is absolutely ridiculous. My episode with Joe is #1164. It is NOT on Spotify, along with some other episodes. pic.twitter.com/ZKTKVTIxZ1

Rogan fans are not happy at this early indicator that Spotify will likely be exerting massive control over the show’s content.
“This goes against his “we need to talk to everybody” shtick. Im not interested in listening to curated podcasts by his employer,” wrote Reddit user “Pluum” in disgust of the news.
“So disappointed, Alex did not even say anything too crazy on those episodes. I had Spotify premium prior to Rogan but I will probably quit my subscription just out of spite now, that will show them!” wrote user @Excavatetheinfo in another Reddit post.
“Not sure what your question is exactly but “He sold out” is kind of a general explanation of what’s going on,” user @Elgallo619 wrote in a comment.
“Spotify is partnered with Tencent Holdings, a Chinese company whose CEO is an active member of the Chinese Communist Party. Anything remotely anti-CCP is getting 86’d,” wrote user @dictatorphil about Spotify’s Chinese connections.
Big League Politics reported somewhat optimistically on Rogan’s deal with Spotify when it was announced several months ago:
Stand-up comedian and UFC commentator Joe Rogan announced that his iconic podcast, which has frequently served as a platform for individuals like Elon Musk and Alex Jones to challenge the political establishment, will soon be hosted exclusively on Spotify.
“It will remain FREE, and it will be the exact same show. It’s just a licensing deal, so Spotify won’t have any creative control over the show. They want me to just continue doing it the way I’m doing it right now … I’m excited to have the support of the largest audio platform in the world and I hope you folks are there when we make the switch!” Rogan said in an Instagram post about the news.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Rogan’s deal is worth more than $100 million, meaning that Rogan is cashing out due to his massive success….
Despite the criticism, Rogan may be leaving YouTube because of the Draconian censorship policies on that platform. He has frequently raised the issue of digital censorship on his show and criticized the restrictive policies of the tech giants…
While many of Rogan’s fans feel this will stifle his content, this move may end up freeing him if Spotify is smart enough to realize that it is a good business decision to give popular content creators the freedom they need to produce uncensored content that their fan bases will enjoy.
Sadly, it appears that the globalist establishment may have neutralized another independent voice with Spotify’s takeover of the Joe Rogan Experience.
Tucker Carlson LIGHTS UP Stooge Senator Mumbai Mike Lee for Big Tech Cheap Labor Giveaway
Mike Lee has spearheaded a massive cheap labor provision for Big Tech.
Tucker Carlson took down Utah Senator Mike Lee in a blistering monologue on his Thursday night show. Lee spearheaded a cheap labor provision to eliminate per-country caps on annual H-1B visa green cards through the Senate earlier this week, effectively monopolizing the H-1B system for nationals of large countries such as India. Big tech monopolies such as Apple, Google, and Facebook have aggressively lobbied what Lee called the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” seeking to replace their American workforce with a new supply of cheaper and compliant foreign labor.
The bill was passed without any public hearings, & will reward Big Tech’s appetite for cheap indentured labor. pic.twitter.com/6kxQ8BwnBq

“It will give them the bulk of all employment-based green cards- up to 90%. What will that do to you and your kids? Let’s say you would like your kids to graduate from college, with all the debt they have, and get a high paying job in technology? Much less likely now. That job is going to go to someone from another country.”
Tucker also called out Republican Kevin Cramer, who served as Lee’s point man in jamming through the cheap labor provision in the Senate.
Senator @kevincramer only cares about the interests of Big Tech executives.
Companies like Microsoft love the H-1B visa because it provides them with indentured labor that will work for less than market wages in exchange for Green Cards. American workers are negatively impacted pic.twitter.com/MNE94dmTJN

“This is all unfolding at a time when we have the highest unemployment rate since you’ve lived in this country… And yet the United States Senate-led by the Republicans- has made it easier for foreigners to take high paying jobs. White collar jobs. The jobs you actually want your kids to have. If Silicon Valley gets its way, it’ll be the first and last immigration bill this administration signs off on. Hope it isn’t. And you should remember who did it. Mike Lee.”
The bill is expected to receive approval in the House. It will fall upon President Trump to veto the Big Tech globalist immigration bill.
These business Republicans are prioritizing a Silicon Valley visa worker giveaway as millions of Americans face unemployment in the coronavirus economy. It’s no coincidence that Big Tech’s cheap labor operative has earned the moniker of “Mumbai Mike.”
