I and many others have been very dissatisfied to see that certain episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience have been excluded from Spotify presumably because of their controversial nature. Fans of the show do not want to see it being influenced by Spotify. Exclusion of these episodes demonstrates content influence and implies that, at the very least, future shows with the same guests and/or covering the same topics as those removed will not be available on Spotify. The mass appeal of JRE and the subscriptions of those intended to be brought to Spotify by the acquisition of JRE will be lost if the excluded episodes are not added to the catalog and future shows are uninfluenced by Spotify. Spotify has a chance to take their subscriber base to the next level that is being squandered. I will be cancelling my subscription and will encourage others to do the same, and as you're surely aware from the current social media backlash, many others are doing the same. I intend to reinstate my subscription if Spotify meets the requests of their subscribers. I hope my idea is helpful.
