[All Platforms][Podcasts] Stop censoring the Joe Rogan Experience

Spotify is just confirming everyone's fears that they are going to censor the JRE. The whole point of the show is creating dialogue and not censoring people's ability to think and discuss openly and what do they do? Immediately start censoring. So much for no creative control. Thanks Spotify... NOT.

We will be cancelling our family subscription and several of our friends will be doing the same.

The concept that Spotify believe that they should choose what information we are exposed to is steeped in corporate arrogance, and nanny-state pettiness. The idea that we are not able to discard information that we do not resonate with as individuals is all you need to know about their intent here.

The very premise of JRE has been open and free conversation from a wide range of guests. Left wing, right wing, internationals with no skin in the game, controversial figures, politicians. Bowing down to cancel culture, political pressure or anything in between is spineless and the seeds that this action has planted through viral dissemination will cost them not only in integrity, but also in the back pocket.

 

Never forget that they are "cancelling" these guests whilst also allowing Rogan to openly promote illegal psychedelics - specifically ones on the absolute extreme end of the spectrum. Just imagine the every-day Spotify users or children using the platform that tune in, see Rogan smoking weed, drinking whiskey until smashed and encouraging DMT, LSD and Mushroom use. The hypocrisy is astounding.

Good one Spotify. Your arrogance has been spread far and wide across the internet and it will cost you in both new subscriptions and current ones.

We will not be back.
