Spotify new home for Joe Rogan’s podcast, shares jump - Reuters

’We will still have clips up on YouTube but full versions of the show will only be on Spotify,’ Rogan said in an Instagram post. His YouTube channel has over 8.4 million subscribers. Spotify shares closed 8.4% higher at $174.91, as the deal is seen as part of the company’s aim to transform itself into the Netflix of audio.

And so marks the end of an era. They must have compensated him greatly to be willing to lose soooo much reach. As his base shrinks massively Spotify may likely release him anyway. I don't see his podcast as enough of a reason to pay for Spotify and I highly doubt it will convert to massive increases in subscriptions. If he did stay the course then we are likely to see him fade from relevance. It was fun while it lasted. Edit: The more I think about it the more this looks like leftist media paying him 100 million to fade away. Rogan has too many guests on that conflicts with the approved narrative. It was probably seen as an easy way to soft silence him.

100 mill to keep him out of everyone's mind and off the mainstream's radar. I'm not surprised he took it, but it does mean he will become far less relevant and far less influential. The left can't allow someone with his reach to continue to be a threat to whatever narrative they want to present to the people. RIP Joe Rogan Show.

There's two sides to this, it's a blow to YouTube losing a big name who streamed on their site and maybe this is a wake-up call for Susan and gang. Other side I always thought as Joe said podcasts should be free and accessible to everyone everywhere.

Stopped listening like 4 years ago. Use to download it from his official website. I'm to the point that I can't even listen to him during fights. He's become very annoying.

Good for his bank account but nothing else. It will limit his audience and you know they'll pressure him about his choice of topics, guests, and his stances on certain issues.

He's been complaining about yt going off the rails for ages. I don't think he cares if less ppl watch, he's 52 and rich. At this point, he just likes chatting with his mates and peoples he's interested in. So, does this mean, if you don't have a spotify sub there'll be poxy ads every few minutes?

Good, my entire "play next" on YouTube is always Joe Rogan. It's annoying. I'm watching Lowder with Crowder or Matt christiansen, next is Joe Rogan. Watching motorcycle compilation video, next is Joe Rogan. Watching pornhub, next is Joe Rogan....

If this is true, he's going to lose a LOT of viewers. But also, given how CensorTube operates... i can't blame him.

Sure, why not? of course, I know next to nothing about Spotify, but I assume they are a popular platform or he wouldn’t sign exclusively with them.

I have spotify, YouTube deserves to die for taking the piss too long, and there's no real change to the content, so I'm okay... That said, buying an 'act' does not mean buying an audience. See Disney Star Wars...

First the WuHan Flu and now this...? What won’t the Deep State Cabal do to try and win the 2020 election...? Taking Joe Rogan off-line is bad for common sense thinking people everywhere.
